Tottenham Hotspur picked up a narrow win on Saturday, but it was not a particularly memorable afternoon for Mauricio Pochettino's men.
Sissoko was picked on the right as Mauricio Pochettino's men looked to go into the international break on a high after their Champions League defeat to Barcelona in midweek.
They did secure the three points, but it was perhaps not the kind of performance that will live long in the Spurs fans' memories as Eric Dier scored the game's only goal eight minutes in. And although the home side dominated possession, they found it difficult to break down the Bluebirds, who played most of the second-half with 10 men after Joe Ralls was dismissed.
Sissoko's display seemed to receive a mixed response on social media, but the majority of the Tottenham fans seemed to be impressed with the 29-year-old.
There was some criticism for the former Newcastle midfielder - some felt that he did not offer enough - but many were actually pleased with his effort and actually thought that he vindicated Pochettino's decision to include him in the starting lineup.
And while the bar was not particularly high in this game, some actually felt that Sissoko made a case to be considered Spurs' man of the match.
Here is what some of the Tottenham fans made of Sissoko's performance at Wembley...
Unpopular opinion. Sissoko had a good game today.— Ian Greene (@IanGreeneDJ) October 6, 2018
Interesting to see our best 2 players today, winks and sissoko, aren’t even listed https://t.co/0cKQ5MOzTW— Henry (@henryfair) October 6, 2018
We made really hard work of that. Winks and Sissoko played well. Disgusting challenge for the red card - the absolute cheek of Warnock to contest it!— Ollie Davis (@Ollie_Davis) October 6, 2018
@SpursOfficial What on Earth is Sissoko doing in a Spurs shirt after his disastrous performance on Wednesday? What can Poch see in him that thousands of Spurs supporters can’t?He may be a very nice guy & gives his all but we need players with talent!!— Timbertony (@ttimbertony) October 6, 2018
I’m genuinely confused with Sissoko. It’s not funny anymore and there’s no agenda by anyone. Other than fitness levels anyone with half decent ability could come out of the stands and do an equal job. The fact Poch plays him says as much about him as it does Sissoko.— modern life is rubbish (@drwinston001) October 6, 2018
