'Really poor', 'Our weakest link' - Tottenham fans slam 26-year-old's display v Chelsea
By Harvey Byrne
Victor Wanyama played the full 90 minutes of Tottenham’s 2-1 defeat against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon – and Spurs fans on Twitter have slammed his display.
The 26-year-old was included in the starting line-up at Wembley, but he was powerless to stop the north London club from falling to a loss with two goals from wing-back Marcos Alonso cancelling out a humiliating Michy Batshuayi own goal.
A number of Tottenham fans received criticism for their performances and that includes Wanyama, who is usually considered a solid performer.
One supporter went as far as to claim he was the weak-link of the side, while others commented on how many times he was surrendering possession.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Wanyama giving the ball away a lot today… Very uncharacteristic of him. Wouldn't mind seeing Son come on for an injection of pace. #THFC

Wanyama joined Tottenham from Premier League rivals Southampton last summer after impressing on the south coast and in his debut season he played 47 times in all competitions, returning five goals and one assist.
He was a key part of the spine of the side that finished in second place in the last campaign and he will be looking to impress once more this season.
However, Sunday’s display will be one that he will want to put quickly behind him.
In other Tottenham news, this Spurs 24-year-old is keen to move on amid interest from Premier League clubs.
