Tottenham fans took to Twitter to marvel at incredible Moussa Sissoko

Everyone loves an underdog and Tottenham Hotspur are so often looked at as just that. One man who’s doing his utmost to shake that tag and prove that his side is one of the best is the reformed Moussa Sissoko. After two years of dross with his confidence in tatters, the Frenchman is now living up his £30 million fee and was superb again yesterday.

Creativity isn’t one of the traits that the Lilywhites would have attributed to their French flop back in August, but then again no one is calling the ex-Newcastle man a flop anymore either. Sissoko is like a man reborn under Mauricio Pochettino this season, and whilst no one likes a cliche, he really has been like a new signing during a campaign where Spurs have failed to make a single purchase.

The 29-year-old was once again one of the best midfielders on the pitch yesterday and his relentless running and ability to carry the ball through the lines in midfield gave the Lilywhites much-needed respite inbetween relentless bombardment from Lucien Favre’s side. He also proved to be worth his salt in defence too, winning all three of his attempted tackles, but the champagne moment for the Frenchman was hands down his assist for Harry Kane’s goal, killing off any hopes of a comeback.

You can see what the Lilywhites had to say about Sissoko’s masterclass here:

Sissoko’s rise from the ashes is something that has given the Lilywhites endless hope this season and with five games between the Lilywhites and the Champions League trophy the performances from the Frenchman will have to keep getting better and better.
