Stan Collymore: This Tottenham attacker can be a hero or a liability (not Janssen)
By Matt Farr
Stan Collymore is not sure what to expect from Moussa Sissoko as Tottenham prepare to take on Swansea on Wednesday night.
Sissoko has found first team opportunities at a premium this season, but has earned a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven at the Liberty Stadium.
He comes into the side in place of the injured Victor Wanyama, but Collymore is uncertain how the attacker’s evening will pan out.
He took to his personal Twitter account ahead of kick-off on Wednesday night to brand Sissoko as a player capable of being both the hero and a liability, urging fans to keep a close eye on his performance.
Watch them. Heroes or liabilities.

The 27-year-old has been heavily criticised for his below-par performances since sealing his £30million move to the club last summer.

Sissoko has contributed just three assists from his 27 appearances for the club in all competitions, and has yet to find the back of the net.
His poor form for Tottenham also saw Sissoko axed from the international setup, where he was omitted from the France senior squad during last month’s international break.
But the Tottenham flop has an opportunity to win back some of the approval of the fans, and shrug off his criticism in what will be only his seventh Premier League start of the campaign.
