Josh Onomah's first game since leaving Tottenham Hotspur this month didn't go all that well, going by social media reaction.

Fulham were dumped out of the Carabao Cup after losing 1-0 at home to Premier League side Southampton last night.

The Cottagers signed the 22-year-old in a part-exchange deal that saw Ryan Sessegnon join Tottenham.

Onomah, who began his career with Spurs, lasted the full 90 minutes, but suffice to say that fans of the West London club weren't thrilled with his debut.


Here's how some reacted on Twitter:

It's worth pointing out that this was the Tottenham product's first game for his new club - and it came against Premier League opposition.

With that in mind, it's probably wise to not judge him too harshly.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was a fan of the young midfielder and just because he was cut loose by the North Londoners, it doesn't mean that he isn't a very good footballer.

He has done relatively well in the Championship during previous spells with Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday and, despite his apparent struggles last night, he has a lot more to offer.
