'Painful', 'Guy is a curse' – Tottenham fans furious with one player despite win Brighton
Tottenham Hotspur fans are furious with midfielder Moussa Sissoko on social media for his performance in the Premier League game against Brighton Wednesday evening.
The 28-year-old was playing in midfield alongside Harry Winks and endured a frustrating night at Wembley Stadium, giving the ball away on several occasions.
Spurs fans were frustrated with the player – and with manager Mauricio Pochettino for his decision to start the player in midfield ahead of Mousa Dembele.
Tottenham won 2-0 but it was not thanks to Sissoko and he made the night way more difficult than it should have been.
Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the best reactions from Tottenham fans on Twitter:
Would love to know what sissoko is in the team to do

Why is Sissoko at the club? Not one part of his game is even above average, get rid of him in January

Is it just me or does it look like Sissoko keeps getting in players' way. They just wait for him to move away & pass to another player #thfc

I don't think we'll ever win again with Sissoko in the side.
The guy is a curse ????

Whenever Sissoko plays I have a constant bad feeling he's gonna be the reason to points being dropped #COYS

Spurs took the lead on 40 minutes through a bizarre goal from full-back Serge Aurier, his first for the club, when a speculative cross from right somehow found its way into the top corner and bounced over the line.
