Tottenham Hotspur have it all to do in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final tie against Ajax after suffering a 1-0 defeat in the first at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Tuesday, and fans of arch-rivals Arsenal were quick to destroy one player for his performance.
With Son Heung-Min suspended and Harry Kane injured, the onus was very much on attacking players like Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen to step up on the evening, but it just didn’t happen as they were both largely anonymous throughout.
The duo clearly struggled to stamp their impact on proceedings and the latter in particular gained plenty of attention for his display from Gunners supporters on Twitter.
Many accused the Denmark international of not turning up on the biggest stage again, while another said their star Mesut Ozil would have got a lot of negative media attention had he produced the same showing.
While Spurs will believe they can still turn things around in Amsterdam, Arsenal fans will surely be praying that the tie is already sewn up.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Eriksen has been pathetic

Yet another disaster class from the lovely boys of England media Dele Ali And Eriksen ..
But no newspaper, article or pundits will be seen slagging them off because their names are not Mesut Ozil or Paul Pogba.. if it were them they would have been deported by now. 🤷🏻♂️
