Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Janssen display v Leicester
By Harvey Byrne
Vincent Janssen started upfront for Tottenham against Leciester on Saturday, and fans were disappointed with his display on Twitter.
The 22-year-old Netherlands international replaced Erik Lamela in the line-up from the previous league match against Bournemouth, with the Argentina international not featuring in the squad at White Hart Lane.
Janssen played the full 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Leicester after scoring from the spot before Ahmed Musa equalised for the Foxes.
Fans were left disappointed with the striker despite his goal with some fans on social media comparing him to former flop Roberto Soldado.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Spurs applying lots of pressure, continue to play good football. Not convinced by Janssen just yet.

they need to run with a false 9. Janssen is struggling big time.

Janssen is Soldado without the goal threat.

Janssen moved from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar in the summer following an impressive season in front of goal in the Eredivisie.
He has started slowly in Mauricio Pochettino’s side with just three penalty goals coming from his first 15 fixtures for the north London club.
However, despite the striker’s poor form Tottenham have maintained their position as the only unbeaten side in the Premier League after 10 matches.
Tottenham now sit in fourth place in England’s top flight following their draw and three points behind league leaders Manchester City.
They will face Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Wednesday before facing fierce rivals Arsenal on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
