Under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino, Mousa Dembele has become an integral part of the Tottenham Hotspur team, and this has not gone unnoticed by the fans.
The midfielder has made 28 Premier League appearances this season, scoring one goal and creating a single assist, but it is his defensive contribution that has stood out.
For the second year in a row, Spurs pushed the league leaders towards the closing stages of the season, but once again they crumbled.
A 1-0 defeat to West Ham United 10 days ago was the moment in which Tottenham’s campaign for the elusive crown came crashing down, and Chelsea wrapped up the race with victory over West Bromwich Albion.
Despite that, the fans still have plenty to be happy about. The club smashed their record points total and have secured second place – their highest ever finish in the division.
Sunday was a joyous occasion for the club and the supporters as they marked their final ever game at White Hart Lane with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United.
After the match, Dembele took to Twitter to express his gratitude to the fans, and they responded with plenty of adoration.

@mousadembele Best memory of today is even when our fans stormed the pitch they still couldn't get the ball off you, that itself shows the player you are!
