Tottenham fans aren’t very happy with Mousa Dembele after Watford clash

Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham had been going well so far this season up until the weekend. As one of the few teams maintaining a 100% record, they were well on track to put forth a title challenge this season, and they were setting the pace in the English top flight. However, whilst they’re still likely to challenge at the top, that 100% run came to an end on Sunday when they met fellow table-toppers Watford. Despite taking the lead in the game, the Lilywhites ended up losing the fixture 2-1.

Whilst on paper Tottenham were certainly the favourites, the reality is that Watford have been doing very well so far this season, and so Pochettino wouldn’t have underestimated the Hornets. On the day, though, they simply proved to be too much for Tottenham.

Following the game, as with any defeat, fans have been quick to point fingers at those who may be responsible for the performance, and midfielder Mousa Dembele has been taking a brunt of the criticism.

On the day that, via the Sun, he was linked with a move away from Spurs, Dembele struggled to make an impact through the midfield, and he was often crowded out by the dominating forces that stood opposite him. In truth, his form perhaps indicated that it might be time for Tottenham to move him on.

Naturally, Spurs fans have been quick to discuss the Belgian’s display, and it’s fair to say that they aren’t too happy.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
