Tottenham Hotspur suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday, and Spurs fans weren’t impressed with midfielder Moussa Sissoko’s performance.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men came into the clash against the Red Devils knowing that a draw would probably be a good result considering Harry Kane missed the game through injury, and they looked to be getting a point before substitute Anthony Martial scored late on.
However, the north London outfit did have a couple of openings of their own and Sissoko fired well over after being set up on the edge of the penalty area in the first half.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on the Frenchman’s showing via social media, and while some simply described him as a “liability”, others said “it’s amazing the negative effect that Sissoko has on the team”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Poch got it wrong today. Should have left Sissoko in London. Literally no positives from that performance. #COYS

Spurs should sell Sissoko and use the money to buy Kane new hamstrings. #COYS

Is Llorente better then Janssen? And what does Sissoko add to the team? #COYS

It's amazing the negative effect that Sissoko has on this team when he plays. So much sharper from everyone after he was taken off. #COYS

I can't understand his persistence with Sissoko. The guy's a liability not an asset.

The first comment I’ve seen that I totally agree with. Disappointing again at TOD!! Surely that’s the last time Sissoko starts a game for us https://t.co/1OurKuJwjF
