Nacer Chadli failed to make an impact against former club Tottenham on Saturday – and Spurs fans on Twitter were grateful.

Chadli was named in the West Brom starting XI for the lunchtime Premier League clash at White Hart Lane but was completed overshadowed as Tottenham ran out 4-0 winners.

A Harry Kane hat-trick and an own goal from Gareth McAuley secured the three points for Mauricio Pochettino’s side as they continued their winning run.

Former Spurs winger Chadli scored West Brom’s goal when the two sides drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

But the £13million signing of last summer could not repeat the feat at the home of his former club and was substituted 61 minutes into the clash with his team two goals down.

Spurs supporters thanked Chadli for not scoring, with some claiming they did not miss him one bit while others missing his skills on the wing.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Tottenham’s sixth consecutive league win has lifted them to second in the league table, their highest position this season.

They have narrowed the gap on leaders Chelsea to just four points and are one point above Liverpool, who travel to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
