Tottenham Hotspur fans were gutted with Vincent Janssen’s display against West Ham United on Saturday.
The Dutchman came off the bench on Saturday as Spurs chased the game against the Hammers, though he could not save his side from a deserved 1-0 defeat.
The result was Spurs’ first loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but Janssen did have the chance to rescue a point for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Juan Foyth, playing at right-back, surged down the flank in injury-time and found Janssen at the back post with a pin-point cross but his resulting header was weak and cleared off the line.
He has scored just six goals for Spurs in total and, prior to his cameo appearance against Brighton & Hove Albion in midweek, had not played for the club since 2017.
Janssen will certainly not be involved in the Champions League semi-final first leg against Ajax in midweek as he is not registered – such was his low standing at the club when such decisions were taken – and fans were left disappointed with his display, with many choosing to focus on that late miss.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Real shame for janssen he didn’t bury that. But his 15 minute cameo summed up his whole Spurs career. Looked lively few nice touches a miss timed shot and a glaring miss 🤦🏻♂️

I’m sure Janssen is destined to fail at our club 😒 #COYS

Clear to see we’re not a big man team, Llorente is good as an impact sub but Janssen is a lost cause has been a long time. Foyth at Rightback is a great choice and definitely potential for him to start against Ajax. Need a quick start next week before the game slows down #COYS

I'm convinced. Janssen has inherited the Soldado Curse. #COYS

Feeling for Janssen. Poor header though. Only wish that someone else was in that position…

If you actually think that we can’t find a better backup striker for Harry Kane than Llorente and Janssen, then you’re deluded.

I don't care that we lost at the new stadium, was always an inevitability but it sucks that its just down to our lack of depth again, no striker, two LBs, a CB at RB and fatigue. Explains how you lose to such a poor team. When janssen is your last hope you're in trouble. #COYS
