Moussa Sissoko has now started Tottenham’s last four Premier League games, but after their 3-2 win over Wolves, Spurs fans were not happy with the 29-year-old midfielder.
Sissoko joined the club in a huge £30m deal from Newcastle in 2016, but he has all to often failed to show the quality necessary to be playing in a top-six side.
Against Wolves on Saturday, Spurs went 3-0 up thanks to goals from Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane – the Englishman’s first league goal in five weeks.
However, with just over 20 minutes remaining, young defender Juan Foyth fouled Raul Jimenez in the box and Ruben Neves dispatched the penalty. Wolves then had their tails up and were given another chance from the spot when Foyth this time pushed defender Jonny, allowing Jiminez to convert, but Spurs were to hold on.
The main criticism levelled at Sissoko though was his lack of end product after a good run or beating a man, and Spurs fans made their feelings known. Check out the best reaction below.
@MoussaSissoko has been quite good as late, but @ericdier and @mousadembele were missed against @Wolves Sissoko is not a natural 6. Much better as box to box. Don't discount that when judging the back 4. #THFC #COYS

Foyth, Winks. Not for me. Sanchez and Sissoko, also look weak links. #THFC

Sissoko is not a Premier League centre midfielder #thfc

Sissoko reminds me off when you put sliders on, on Fifa you just run

Really what's the point of Sissoko? If we need a guy who's strong.and runs fast with the ball Bolt would be a better option. Sissoko can hardly trap the ball. #THFC

Levy needs to put he’s hand in he’s pocket sharpish having Davies tripper and sissoko in your starting 11 is a problem #thfc

Pretty much sums up Sissoko. Beats his man but no end product
