Tottenham booked their passage into the FA Cup fifth round with a fairly routine 2-0 win over League Two club Newport, but fans blamed the lack of goals on stand-in striker Fernando Llorente.
He played the full 90 minutes but couldn’t add to his two goals in now 25 appearances.
That’s not good enough for Tottenham fans who have seen enough and don’t think the 32-year-old has what it takes to represent their club.
An own goal from Dan Butler and a second from Erik Lamela gave Tottenham the win on Wednesday night, but it was a nervy display over the two legs, after Newport nearly delivered the shock of the round in the first tie.
The good news for manager Mauricio Pochettino is that he managed to rest stars such as Harry Kane and Dele Alli, with the latter getting the final 12 minutes of action.
But it wasn’t a good night for Llorente – here are some of the best reactions to his display tonight:
Tonight is a microcosm of this season. Llorente is too slow and not clinical enough & Sissoko is devoid of any quality in the final third. I’ve never seen a man turn and run so much only to return to the space he vacated!

Llorente really should have scored tonight. He needs goals and they don’t come much easier than this. That nacker of a linesman saved his blushes on the first one. 2 piss poor offside decisions. TOBY IS BACK THOUGH 👊 #COYS

There must be players in the youth team that can challenge Llorente and Sissoko. I’ve defended them for too long but they’re shit #COYS

Definitely would’ve subbed myself by now if I was Llorente…
