Tottenham fans on Twitter have been lauding sublime Sissoko

Tottenham fans on Twitter have been lauding sublime Sissoko - Premier League

Last night was arguably the biggest game that Tottenham fans have seen their side play in years. Despite recent near misses domestically in the last three years, the Champions League is different. Ajax looked like blowing them away at the start, but when Moussa Sissoko came on he changed the game and there’s hope of a result in Amsterdam now.

It’s been mentioned once or twice, but what an incredible turnaround Sissoko has had in his career in North London. Mauricio Pochettino has simplified the Frenchman’s game and got him doing what he’s good at. Technical ability is not what Sissoko’s game relies on, it’s his pace and power, carrying the ball through from defence to attack in transition, and he helped turn yesterday’s game in Spurs’ favour.

The likes of Lucas Moura, Fernando Llorente, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen didn’t have their shooting boots on and looked overwhelmed by the occasion in the first half an hour, conceding the only goal of the game in that time. After that, when Jan Vertonghen suffered a nasty head injury, Sissoko came on to give them an added boost and the Lilywhites could not have been happier to see the 29-year-old come on and he looked in his element against the likes of Frenkie De Jong and Donny van de Beek.

The Lilywhites cannot wait for the second leg and will be desperate for Sissoko to start against Ajax when they travel to Amsterdam next Wednesday.
