Tottenham Hotspur fans react on Twitter to Ryan Mason's performance v Manchester City

Nathan Baker and Ryan Mason

The England international did not have his best game for the club this afternoon.

There is no doubt that Ryan Mason has had a very good season at Tottenham Hotspur. The young midfielder has burst into the side under Mauricio Pochettino and is keeping the likes of Moussa Dembele and Paulinho out of the first-team at White Hart Lane.

But today, was not one of his better days.

The midfielder, who has also made it into the England senior set-up this season, was poor throughout before finally being replaced by Brazilian international Paulinho.

Mason was the nearest man to Sergio Aguero when he opened the scoring for City, but he simply did not follow the run of the deadly Argentine attacker.

He also had a chance to score himself. Clean through on goal a poor first-touch made life difficult for himself and Joe Hart made a good stop.

To top it all off he managed to pick himself up a booking as well.

Tottenham fans like the midfielder, but today was a very bad day at the office.

Plenty of fans have taken to Twitter after the game to make it clear that they were not pleased with the performance of the academy graduate:
