It has emerged the France international has played the most passes in the final third of any Spurs player so far this season with an accuracy of 93.75%. His accuracy places him fifth-place in the list of players in the top five leagues in Europe (Wyscout via football.london).

Despite Sissoko’s impressive passing statistics, he was forced to play at right-back during the loss to Brighton and Hove Albion after the red card suffered by Serge Aurier in the win over Southampton (via BBC).

The £22.5m-rated man was praised by former Spurs player Jermaine Jenas for his performance in the loss to the south coast club (via TBR).
