Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Janssen display against Aston Villa
By Harry Sykes
Vincent Janssen extended his miserable Tottenham scoring run on Sunday – and fans took to Twitter to express their frustration with the misfiring striker.
The Holland international played 60 minutes of Spurs’ 2-0 FA Cup win over Aston Villa before being replaced by man-of-the-moment Dele Alli.
The match was goal-less when Janssen was withdrawn and the home side were immediately ignited by the presence of Alli.
Left-back Ben Davies gave Spurs the lead shortly afterwards, before Son Heung-Min secured the team’s passage into the fourth round with a clinical finish.
Spurs fans were less than impressed by Janssen, who has yet to score from open play since his £18million transfer from AZ Alkmaar last summer.

“Wasn’t Janssen’s day”? It isn’t bad luck. Needs to make it his day. So much nonsense superstition in football ? #coys

Another bad game for Janssen. He didn’t have much chances to play with but he still very much lacks the physicallity to get through #COYS

Janssen made his 23rd Spurs appearance of the season against Villa, although it was only his 10th start for the Londoners.
Supporters are starting to run out of patience with the forward, whose three goals in a Tottenham shirt have all come from the penalty spot.
