The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been pretty impressed with a few players this season. Though it hasn’t been the perfect campaign thus far, a few names including that of Davinson Sanchez, Harry Kane and Harry Winks continue to be sung loud and proud here in the Transfer Tavern, owing to their fine performances this term.
However, one name that is rarely given the time of day is that of Mousa Sissoko. Never really a particularly popular member of the squad, the Frenchman began to impress fans earlier this term with a string of fine performances, but in recent weeks he has looked a little like his old self once more.
Despite often being selected by Mauricio Pochettino, the Frenchman has looked quiet and lazy and has offered very little through the middle of the Spurs first team. It’s no surprise, then, that fans want to see a change. According to a recent poll ran by our landlord, a whopping 87% of Tottenham fans want to see Sissoko dropped from the first team as soon as possible.
The Frenchman has often blown hot and cold in London, but even by Tottenham’s mixed standards this term, he’s been very poor lately. Against Brighton earlier this week, despite Tottenham winning the game, he was arguably one of the worst players on the pitch, and that’s a problem for Pochettino.
With a number of other players to call upon, notably Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli, Pochettino certainly has a big call on his hands against Man City on Saturday.
