Spurs fans are having second thoughts after beastly Dembele performance

After finding out what it’s like to be on the receiving end of a Mousa Dembele master class, Tottenham fans are starting to wonder if they’re making a huge mistake letting the Belgian leave this summer.

Dembele is expected to leave North London this summer, as the fan favourite midfielder enters the last 12 months of his contract.

The 30 year-old’s style of play is extremely physically demanding, especially in such a fast-paced league, and he has been linked with moves to both China and Italy.

Mauricio Pochettino has not done much wrong since taking over at Tottenham, but fans are starting to feel cashing in on Dembele is a mistake, after the wiry midfielder dominated Belgium’s 1-0 win over England.

The Belgian beast made four tackles, a total matched only by Danny Rose and Youri Tielemans, and he also completed 99 per cent of his passes. Yes, you read that right; Dembele had a 99 per cent pass success rate.

On the other side, Eric Dier struggled massively, not making a single tackle or interception.

While Pochettino and Daniel Levy will undoubtedly bring in a new signing to atone for the loss of Dembele, playing against him has made fans realise exactly what they’ll be missing if he goes, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
