Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the performance of Nabil Bentaleb against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.
Bentaleb started the FA Cup fifth-round tie at White Hart Lane and played for the entire 90 minutes.
Spurs were favourites to win the match, but the North London outfit suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat.
Martin Kelly’s goal on the stroke of half time proved to be the difference between the two sides in the London derby.
It was a rare start for Bentaleb, who has been largely a peripheral figure at Tottenham this season.
The 21-year-old Algeria international midfielder, though, failed to make a good impression, with his performance underlining why he is not in the team any more.
Bentaleb, who has had injury problems, has been able to make just five appearances in the Premier League so far this campaign, creating two chances in the process.
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to have their say on the performance of Bentaleb against Palace.

Seeing a lot of meltdowns regarding Bentaleb. Thought we only lost 0-1? Feel like we were smashed 5-1 from the reactions on here #COYS— Yinx Kan (@yinx76) February 21, 2016
Have to say that Bentaleb was so poor today, Walker just as bad! Both have to improve if they want to get / stay in the side! #COYS— Mr Stuuuu (@MrStu10) February 21, 2016
It's tough for Bentaleb when he's not getting regular games but he's been poor every chance he's got & can see him going in the summer #COYS— Dave W (@spudly77) February 21, 2016
