'Hopeless', 'Horrendous' - Tottenham fans slaughter senior powerhouse in clash v Leicester
Tottenham fans have taken to social media to rage over the performance of central powerhouse Victor Wanyama during the club’s thrilling end of season clash against Leicester City on Sunday.
The Lilywhites welcomed the Foxes to Wembley in what was Spurs’ last game at the national stadium before moving to their new ground, but despite having wrapped up a top four finish, and with it Champions League football, Mauricio Pochettino still named a strong starting XI.
However, the Argentine was forced into a late change prior to kick off, with Belgian centre back Jan Vertonghen a late drop-out, and it was the Kenyan enforcer who took the defender’s place in the starting line up.
However, the 26-year-old failed to live up to expectation and left the Tottenham faithful fuming on Twitter, with many blaming him for Leicester’s second goal after he was caught in possession on the edge of his box, Riyad Mahrez taking advantage.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

The central star has struggled with injuries this season, which have limited him to making just 24 appearances across all competitions, 11 of which have been starts, with his only goal a sensational strike against Liverpool.
