The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern were relieved when their side managed to secure a draw against Liverpool on Sunday. A game full of drama and excitement, the Lilywhites looked on course for a loss after Mohamed Salah scored in the closing stages – only for Harry Kane to save the day, as he so often has this season.
In truth, Tottenham certainly deserved to get a point out of the game, with most of Mauricio Pochettino’s men putting in a good shift. However, one player has drawn the ire of the Tottenham fans after the game, and it’s easy to see why.
Though he has had a fantastic start to life in the Premier League, Davinson Sanchez looked poor against the Reds. Lacking confidence, stability and consistency at the back, he was mistake-prone from the outset and throughout, and it nearly cost Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Following the game, Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react, and it’s fair to say that Sanchez is taking the brunt of the criticism.
Identified as, alongside Eric Dier, one of the worst players on the pitch by a fair few fans, Sanchez clearly isn’t too popular in North London at the moment. Whilst supporters recognise his talent, some are fearing that he might need a few weeks off.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…

Sanchez and Dier made Pochettino's (difficult) decision on what to do with Wanyama and Alderweireld very easy. Straight back into the team for the both of them. Sanchez showed the vulnerability Mourinho talked about after EL final, and Dier was just being Dier. Once again. #COYS

Breathtaking last 15 mins! Terrible 1st half, much better 2nd. Should have won but taken draw @ 80 mins & when Salah got 2nd. Sanchez a concern. Play 11 different players Wed & hope Toby proves fit for Sat. Surprised Rose not on bench. In Poch we trust #LIVTOT #THFC #Spurs #COYS

Can't wait for Toby to be match fit and come back in to replace Sanchez. Potential – yes. As good as most of you make out? Not a chance! #COYS

That game nearly killed me… Made it hard for ourself from the 1st minute. Sanchez was poor. Redeemed ourselves 2nd half and definitely deserved a point at least. One day you will kill me @SpursOfficial #COYS
