'Dreadful', 'Awful' - Tottenham fans slam senior player for display against Watford
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to slam Moussa Sissoko for his performance against Watford on Saturday.
Sissoko, 28, came off the bench in the 64th minute to replace Christian Eriksen to see out the final phases of what ended up as a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road.
Christian Kabasele put Watford ahead with a brilliant header in the first-half before Heung-min Son equalised by finishing off a sweeping counter-attack from Tottenham.
Davinson Sanchez was sent off after the break for an elbow on Richarlison, leaving Spurs with the hard task of salvaging a point at Vicarage Road.
Sissoko was introduced in an effort to shore things up in midfield but instead, according to the fans, became a bit of a liability, especially when he had a chance at goal that he completely mis-hit.
Fans were not happy with the Frenchman’s display and took to Twitter to show their feelings.

Senior player Sissoko has made 21 appearances across all competition for Spurs this season and has shown a marked improvement on his debut campaign last time out.
He arrived from Newcastle for £30million in 2016 but failed to show a level of performances that Tottenham needed to compete at the top of the Premier League.
However this campaign he has scored his first and second goals for the North London side.
