Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to destroy Danny Rose for performance in their team’s 4-1 Premier League win against Bournemouth on Sunday.
The left-back was named in the starting XI as Mauricio Pochettino made three changes to the side that lost 2-1 to Juventus in the Champions League in midweek.
Pochettino once again rotated his full-backs as Rose and Serge Aurier replaced Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies in the side.
Spurs were initially all over the place as their defence were caught off guard by a high-tempo start from Bournemouth, who took the lead through Junior Stanislas moments after he had missed a sitter.
Dele Alli equalised for Tottenham moments after Harry Kane was substituted with an ankle injury and the score at half-time in an entertaining encounter was 1-1.
Son Heung-Min scored twice in the second period as he continued his own golden run of form, which has yielded seven goals in his last four appearances, and Serge Aurier added a late fourth to put the gloss on the scoreline.
Tottenham supporters were unimpressed with Rose, who went off with what appeared an injury after 80 minutes and was replaced by Eric Dier.
Comments from a section fans included that the 27-year-old is “done” and “finished”, and “half the player he was 18 months ago”.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Obviously Aurier will get the hate today because he’s Aurier (and he’s been largely poor tbf) but Rose has had a pretty terrible match. His own comments about not being ‘Spurs sharp’ were bang on.

Can’t blame Rose for being a little rusty but he looks half the player he was 18 months ago. #coys
