Tottenham fans call for 27-year-old attacker to start against Hull
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to call for Moussa Sissoko to start in the attacking midfield three against Hull on Wednesday night.
The 27-year-old made a mega £30million switch from Newcastle to north London in the last few hours of the summer window.
He has so far been a bit-part player, playing in just eight of Spurs’ 15 Premier League fixtures this season.
The attacker had failed to impress most supporters so far this campaign, but his 30 minute cameo appearance in the 1-0 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday caught the eye of many.
The Spurs attack have also struggled to deliver any sort of cutting edge apart from Harry Kane this season.

This has led to many fans on social media calling for the France international to come into the team to face Hull at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Tottenham are currently sat in fifth place in the Premier League table going into Wednesday’s match.
A win could see them jump up to fourth depending on Manchester City’s result against Watford.
However, they could also drop to sixth with a shock defeat and a Manchester United victory against Crystal Palace.
