Not much can go wrong for the Tottenham midfielder.

If a photo could sum up Moussa Sissoko's spell at Tottenham Hotspur so far then this is it.

The French international was pictured in training in Belgium ahead of Thursday night's Europa League fixture away at Gent.

Under pressure from teammate Josh Onomah in a training drill, Sissoko appears to entirely miss kick the ball - right in front of Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham paid Newcastle United £30 million to sign Sissoko on transfer deadline day, in a very uncharacteristic move for the club.

It was evident they had paid over the odds, and Sissoko has not yet looked like a player worth even half that amount.

He may look better next season with a pre-season behind him and more time to acclimatise as a Spurs player, but it is not clear where he best fits into Tottenham's XI, and he needs to show he deserves to be part of the 2017/18 squad.

With the team likely to be rotated against Gent and Fulham in the FA Cup this weekend, Sissoko should be hopeful of getting a chance, but needs to raise his game. The omens do not look good.
