'Makes Sissoko look like Pirlo': Tottenham fans mock Chelsea over Bakayoko

Tottenham Hotstpur fans celebrate during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Stoke City at Wembley Stadium on December 9, 2017 in London, England.

Tiemoue Bakayoko had another nightmare for Chelsea in their 4-1 defeat to Watford and Tottenham Hotspur fans simply could not get enough.

A bumbling, overpriced French midfielder is the laughing stock of London today and, for once, it is not Moussa Sissoko.

It is fair to say Tiemoue Bakayoko has not made the impact Chelsea fans expected when their club paid £40 million to sign him from Monaco in the summer, allowing the classy and composed Nemanja Matic to go to Manchester United as a result.

The 23-year-old has been vilified in some quarters, not just for a lack of technique of first touch but for a tendency to make precisely the wrong decision at precisely the wrong time.

The future of manager Antonio Conte will dominate the headlines after Chelsea’s 4-1 battering at Watford on Monday night, but it must be remembered that the score was goalless until Bakayoko was sent off late in the first half for the most needless of second yellows.

It is not just Chelsea fans who have taken to social media to condemn his latest dismal display in English football, with Tottenham fans enjoying watching Bakayoko far more than their West London neighbours.

It is fair to say Spurs’ one-time £30 million club record signing Sissoko has not exactly lived up to his price-tag in 18 months as a Tottenham player. But it is telling that their fans would rather have him in their ranks than Bakayoko right now.
