Tottenham fans have been reacting to the news that Moussa Sissoko could start against Newcastle, and the responses are unsurprisingly negative.
It’s been a pretty terrible month for Tottenham fans, and they think it might get a whole lot worst on Wednesday night as Moussa Sissoko is set to start at Wembley.
Although there is no concrete report suggesting the Frenchman will get the nod, an injury to Mousa Dembele and an illness for Eric Dier means Sissoko is just about the only midfielder available to start alongside Victor Wanyama.
Sissoko has clearly had the trust of his manager this season, as the 28 year-old has played 47 times in all competitions.
That hasn’t stopped him getting plenty of flak from the fans though, who feel the Frenchman adds virtually nothing to the team, despite his bundles of energy.
Though Newcastle have nothing left to play for, Rafael Benitez’s side are likely to deploy a deep block at Wembley on Wednesday, so Spurs will need players that can unlock deep defences with a killer pass.
Sissoko averages less than one key pass per game in the Premier League, so fans are fearing the worst about the possibility he could start, while others are hoping Christian Eriksen is moved into the deeper position.

FFS isn’t bad enough without Sissoko starting. He offers nothing

Drop Eriksen deeper and throw Moura in.

Yep, in a crucial game we'll start Sissoko against the team that robbed us of £30m, sending the Toon into fits of hysterics.
This can only end one way…
