Tottenham Hotspur failed to put pressure on their top four rivals in the English Premier League on Sunday, labouring to a 1-1 draw away to Southampton at St Mary’s.
Falling behind through a Davinson Sanchez own goal, Spurs again had to rely on talisman Harry Kane to bail them out, who netted his equaliser just three minutes later.
With Liverpool playing on Monday evening, it was a chance for Mauricio Pochettino’s side to move level on points with the Reds, who can now move five points clear if they beat Swansea.
Fans were left frustrated with the result and the performance, with particular criticism aimed at attacking midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
Spurs’ lack of creativity was a problem throughout the ninety minutes, managing just two shots on target, and Sissoko failed to do much in the final third.
Supporters are now calling on him to be dropped or even moved on this January.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his role at the club in the wake of the draw…

I want Poch to release a new book on why he continues to pick Sissoko. Should be an interesting read #THFC

All these people complaining about Sissoko playing for all 90 minutes.

Spurs should pay Inter Milan 30 million to have Sissoko.
The guy can just about walk, let alone play football.

On the Sissoko debate – 1 goal & 1 assist in 23 league games for an attacking midfielder in a title/top 4 challenging team… That’s where the frustration lies. His overall play is steady yes, but that’s not what wins games unfortunately. More creativity required. #SOUTOT #THFC

If poch is trying to put sissoko in the shop window it’s not working we should cut our losses #THFC
