Tottenham supporters have expressed their anger and disappointment towards summer signing Fernando Llorente on social media following his performance against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.

The 32-year-old started on the substitutes bench for the match at Old Trafford despite talisman Harry Kane being ruled out of the encounter.

The striker replaced Heung-Min Son just past the hour mark but he failed to make the desired impact for the visitors.

United substitute Anthony Martial turned out to be the match winner, making the most of poor Spurs defending and finishing past fellow countryman Hugo Lloris.

The result means that Jose Mourinho’s side are now three points ahead of Spurs and the North London club have failed to win at Old Trafford since the 2013-14 campaign.

Despite only featuring for the last 30 minutes, Llorente received some criticism from his own fans on social media.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
