Christian Eriksen played 65 minutes on Wednesday night – and the Tottenham supporters were furious on Twitter with his performance.
Spurs suffered a 1-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen in their Champions League group stage match at Wembley, with Kevin Kampl scoring the decisive goal in the second-half.
The result leaves the north London club third-placed in their group and currently occupying a Europa League spot.
Eriksen, 24, was replaced by youngster Harry Winks in the 66th minute and failed to make a positive impact on the game.
Spurs fans voiced their anger with the display of Eriksen and one fan suggested that he needs a period on the bench.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Eriksen is in the team for his guile and technical ability. If he's not showing that, he's just a passenger. #THFC

Seriously? I know Eriksen has done absolutely nothing but bringing Harry Winks on in the CL is properly meh

Eriksen moved to White Hart Lane in 2013 from Ajax and has been a major success.
The Danish international has now made 145 appearances for Spurs and is a crucial player under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
He has made a relatively slow start to the the current season in his first 14 games, scoring two goals and supplying three assists.
Eriksen is still searching for his Premier League goal and will want to improve to keep his place in a competitive squad.
Spurs face bitter rivals Arsenal on Sunday in the Premier League and they are now without a win in their last six games across all competitions.
