Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Nabil Bentaleb’s performance v Leicester

Tottenham defeated Leicester with a top class performance in the FA Cup.

Tottenham secured their passage to the fourth round of the FA Cup by defeating Leicester City 2-0 at the King Power Stadium.

Having drawn the original tie 2-2, Spurs put in a much more dominating performance this time round, and they looked like a well oiled machine despite a number of changes to the starting XI.

Both Mauricio Pochettino and Claudio Ranieri made some amor changes to their starting line-ups, and Pochettino’s men took the upper hand early on in the game.

The dominated control of the ball, and netted in the first half through Heung Min-Son’s lovely strike. Nacer Chadli secured the victory in the second half, through more nice play from Son, and Spurs never really looked threatened.

It was a welcome return to the starting XI for one Tottenham player, who has found his chances limited this season.

Nabil Bentaleb was touted before the start of the season as one of Pochettino’s key players, considering his excellent form last season, but his campaign has been dominated by injury and poor form.

He started the season in the team, but has not played in the Premier League since August, and yesterday was just his third start of the season.

He has come under criticism for some poor performances this term, and fans took to Twitter at the end of the game to share their views on his performance against Leicester - with Bentaleb still dividing opinion.
