Tottenham Hotspur suffered a shock defeat away to relegation candidates West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, conceding a goal in the last moments of the game to lose 1-0.
It was former Spurs man Jake Livermore who found the winning goal, giving the Baggies a slither of hope in their battle to beat the drop to the English Championship.
From Spurs’ perspective it was a damaging defeat, given they are still not guaranteed a top four finish. A Chelsea victory on Sunday against Liverpool would put them two points behind Mauricio Pochettino’s side with two games to play.
Fans were left fuming with the performance and had particular criticism for midfielder Victor Wanyama, whose style of play was not suited to breaking down a packed and organised West Brom defence.
Some believe he hasn’t been good enough for a while though and they’re looking for him to be sold this summer. Is that a harsh assessment?
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Wanyama hasn't been good enough since his return from injury. We really missed Dier today, he's a much better passer of the ball, constantly looking forward rather than Wanyama just playing it safe. Hopefully he starts the final two games ahead of Wanyama. #COYS #THFC

Lamela, Llorente, Wanyama, Dier, Aurier & Rose all need to be sold … purely average players … #THFC

Also I take it no one is lost as to why Wanyama is available in the summer

May be just may be, Poch as done all he can for us, it was evident today there was no plan B or C. As well as him there are players that just can't do it, Wanyama, Rose, Trippier and Lamella (don't think I got the spellings right). Don't be surprised if CE fucks off to PSG.

Rose is shit. Wanyama isn't good enough. Awful performance again, key players not giving their all through fear of getting injured before world cup.

do people still believe that Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama are good at football?

Wanyama knows he’s allowed to tackle right?

This is why I keep tweeting about new signings. If we want to be able to dominate games and play fluid football against low blocks, we need the right players. A player like Wanyama brings nothing to a game like this. https://t.co/zssuFH7F81
