Tottenham Hotspur fans have expressed their disappointment at Moussa Sissoko missing out on the Man of the Match award after his performance against Crystal Palace.
Son Heung-Min won the award after scoring the first goal at the club’s new stadium, seeing his effort from the edge of the box deflected into the bottom corner after he cut in from the right flank. Christian Eriksen netted the second.
But Sissoko turned in an excellent midfield performance versus the Eagles, having been transformed under Mauricio Pochettino this season.
Indeed, per WhoScored, Sissoko made two tackles, two clearances, one interception and won three aerial duels.
Sissoko also made one key pass and had a pass completion rate of 81%.
Spurs confirmed on Twitter on Thursday that Son had won the accolade but a number of fans replied indignantly to their tweet, insisting that his French team-mate was the rightful winner.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Should be Sissoko imo. Tough to get MOTM unless you’re scoring the goals though, I guess. #JusticeForMoussa
