Tottenham fans were not happy to see Moussa Sissoko back in their side tonight for the Premier League clash against Brighton.
Mauricio Pochettino made six changes, with one eye on the FA Cup semi-final against Man United at the weekend, as he bids to land his first piece of silverware with Tottenham.
Lucas Moura got his first Premier League start and Toby Alderweireld made his first league appearance since October.
Both looked sharp and fans were happy to see them, but they weren’t so pleased to see the erratic Sissoko take his place.
The midfielder made some marauding runs but then shanked a pass out for a Brighton throw-in, and it’s this sort of unpredictability that drives the Spurs fans mad.
One fan said that if he Spurs got rid of Dembele and kept Sissoko, he’d kill someone.
Here are the best reactions from Tottenham fans who were left frustrated by the first 45 minutes from their French midfielder:
How can you not criticize Sissoko man? I really try not to but he makes me do it

Sissoko playing ffs. We’re gonna get rid of him id imagine in summer. Why play him? Just to keep him happy for a bit? No point

Moussa Sissoko is the most befuddling player to watch that I’ve seen in a while. #COYS

Moussa Sissoko must be mustard in training because he offers absolutely nothing in games. Can’t wait for him to be player of the tournament at the World Cup though.
