Tottenham fans react on Twitter as Moussa Sissoko is set for spell on the sidelines

By Will Butcher

Tottenham fans have delivered a mixed response on Twitter after The Football Association charged Moussa Sissoko with violent conduct.

The Frenchman has been reprimanded after elbowing Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter during Saturday’s 0-0 draw, during an altercation on the touchline.

The FA released a statement on their official website, stating that Sissoko has until 6pm on October 25 to reply to the charge as a panel of three former officials come together to deliberate on when it was a sending-off offence.

Sissoko is facing a three-match absence as Spurs do not intend to contest the charge.

Referee Craig Pawson did not see the incident or take any action, but the alleged elbow was caught on video, with the FA now taking action.

Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter to the decision, with many claiming that a spell on the sidelines could be considered good news for Spurs after Sissoko’s start to life in North London.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The former Toulouse man, who starred at Euro 2016 for France, has made eight appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s side since his £30million move to White Hart Lane.

However, Sissoko is now expected to miss Spurs’ EFL Cup fourth round tie against Premier League giants Liverpool on Tuesday night, as The FA await a decision from Sissoko.
