Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Federico Fazio’s horror show against Arsenal

Bentaleb, Fazio

Tottenham fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Arsenal on Wednesday.

Spurs failed to make their home advantage count, losing 2-1 in the League Cup third round on Wednesday evening.

It was by no means a class North London Derby, with both managers selecting weakened sides, although it took a moment of quality to clinch the victory for the Gunners.

Poor goalkeeping from Michel Vorm allowed Mathieu Flamini to net the opening goal, before Calum Chambers put the ball into his own net as Spurs grew into the game in the second half.

However, Arsenal got back into the tie, and it was Flamini again - scoring the first brace of his career - who secured the victory with a technically excellent long-range volley.

Aside from Flamini, there were few players on either side worthy of praise, although Danny Rose looks to be back to his best for the Lilywhites.

But there were players who underperformed, and who could rightfully never appear for Spurs again. Vorm in goal showed the amazing difference in ability between himself and Hugo Lloris, but it was the performance of Federico Fazio in defence which truly got the blood boiling.

Based on his statistics he put in a solid defensive performance, winning five aerial duels and completing a game-high 16 clearances, but he failed to win a single tackle, and was caught out of position all too often.

It was a performance which had fans criticising him endlessly, and we collect some of the best Twitter responses from after the game.
