'You clown', 'Having a 'mare' - Tottenham fans rage at star's first half v Manchester City

Tottenham fans turned to social media to rage at the performance of left back Danny Rose after his first half performance against Manchester City on Saturday.

Spurs went into the half time break 1-0 down after City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan managed to find himself in space to head home past Hugo Lloris at the Etihad Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino, who has been known to rotate his full backs this season, chose to start Kieran Trippier on the right and Rose on the left, the England international given the nod over Ben Davies.

However, fans were less than impressed with what they saw from the 27-year-old, as he was pitted against former Spurs team mate Kyle Walker, and took to Twitter to voice their frustrations.

Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Since arriving from Leeds United back in 2007, Rose has gone on to be a star performer for Spurs, with 151 appearances under his belt for the north London side.

However he has found playing time at a premium this season, having recently returned from his serious injury layoff suffered back in January, which ruled him out for the opening two months of the current campaign.

His start against City is his eighth appearance across all competitions, seven of which have come as starts, and his fourth Premier League outing.
