Tottenham Hotspur were beaten 2-1 by Southampton at White Hart Lane earlier today.
Ryan Mason continues to take the brunt of Tottenham Hotspur fans' criticism on social media site Twitter, after they were beaten 2-1 by Southampton earlier today.
Mason was slated by Spurs fans after he came on as a late substitute in their recent 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion, and he was the source of similar comments earlier.
Mason started for Spurs against Southampton, but he failed to make much of an impact on the match, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side fell to another defeat.
Tottenham took the lead against the Saints through Heung-Min Son, but their performance levels dipped and Southampton took advantage.
The south coast club equalised through Steven Davis in the first half, and then the Northern Ireland international beat Hugo Lloris again late on to secure the three points.
Mason’s failure to control the game in the same manner as the suspended Mousa Dembele was a frustration for Spurs fans, who are growing concerned that they could yet finish below Arsenal this season, and they took some of their anger out on the central midfielder.
Mason seems a nice lad, but he’s shown this year that he’s not going to cut it for what #THFC aspire to.— Stuart Peel (@JedLomax) May 8, 2016
Don't usually dig players out but mason isn't good enough. Had a good chance to stake a claim but failed unfortunately just really poor#THFC— bert bassett (@bertybassett77) May 8, 2016
One thing is for sure that Mason will never make it at Spurs.— Mikael (@Mikael_Thfc) May 8, 2016
If anything today just proves the investment in the squad required, Mason & Chadli especially, we've outgrown both of these players.#THFC— Ricky Sacks (@RickSpur) May 8, 2016
Mason isn't good enough for the starting XI nor is he an impact sub. Unless we are playing Qarabag he shouldn't be in the squad #thfc— Adhithya (@adhithya35) May 8, 2016
Very disappointing,heads dropped. Lack of quality of reserves hit us again, Mason, Son, Njie not good enough. Better team won today #thfc— Andy (@upthespurs_uk) May 8, 2016
Tottenham need to avoid defeat on the last day of the season against Newcastle United, to ensure that they finish ahead of their North London rivals.
