Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Janssen display v CSKA
By Dominic Toner
Vincent Janssen endured another difficult game against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday – and the Tottenham supporters vented their frustration about his performance on Twitter.
Spurs picked up a vital 1-0 win against the Russian side on Tuesday night, with Heung-Min Son netting a decisive winner with a shot into the bottom right corner.
The result leave Spurs with four points from their opening two group matches and with a good chance to qualify for the knockout stages.
Janssen was substituted off in the second-half and struggled once again for Spurs.
The striker has now scored just one goal in his first 10 appearances for the club and has found it difficult to settle at White Hart Lane since his arrival in the summer transfer window.

He was the top scorer in the Dutch League last season with a virtual goal-a-game haul of 27 goals in 34 games for AZ Alkmaar.
Mauricio Pochettino recruited the Dutchman to provide competition for Harry Kane but an injury to the club’s talisman has seen the pressure placed heavily on Janssen.
The club’s supporters revealed their disappointment with Janssen’s display and one fan compared him to Spurs’ former flop Roberto Soldado.
Am I the only one who's wondering: "Is Janssen another Soldado"? #COYS

Janssen too busy being the link man when he should be the front man.
