Tottenham fans mixed reaction to Sissoko being on cover of match programme

Tottenham's Moussa Sissoko waits to come on as a substitute

Moussa Sissoko is yet to prove himself to Tottenham fans.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko is really still waiting for his career at the club to get off the ground, but is hoping for a big second half of the campaign.

In recent weeks he has shown encouraging flashes of positive progress, having had a tough start since his deadline day move from Newcastle United.

As a result he is yet to win over supporters' hearts, with fans wanting him to do well, but remaining unconvinced that he fits into their best starting XI.

Spurs have high hopes he will kick on, and the France international features on the front page of their match programme for the Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion this weekend, a game in which he may not even start.

Sissoko's start to life at Spurs is encapsulated by the responses to Tottenham's twitter feed, with a cross section of opinions on the former Newcastle midfielder.

Sissoko has only started six league games for Spurs since signing, limiting his opportunities to show what he can do, with a further six appearances coming from the bench.

The 27-year-old's cause would be helped if he got on the scoresheet, which he is yet to do, although he does have two assists to his name.
