A number of Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to slam Davinson Sanchez's performance in the North London derby as Mauricio Pochettino's men squandered a two-goal lead and ended up only taking home a point from the Emirates.

Spurs had taken a 2-0 lead during the first-half thanks to Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane. Alexandre Lacazette scored for Arsenal in stoppage-time before the break while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised with just under 20 minutes remaining.

 

It was a particularly disappointing day for the Colombian, who was selected at right-back with Jan Vertonghen coming back in alongside Toby Alderweireld at the heart of the defence. Interestingly, Serge Aurier was on the bench for the game.

The 23-year-old gave the ball away cheaply on a number of occasions and did not look comfortable in the role. Whoscored.com shows that he only completed 26 successful passes, and only Harry Kane and the two goalkeepers boasted a worse pass-completion rate of those who started the contest.

Sanchez's performance has divided the large majority of the Tottenham supporters on social media, with some admitting to having a lot of sympathy for the youngster. Mauricio Pochettino has been criticised for playing Sanchez at right-back by several fans.

However, others have been a lot more critical of the defender. While he was playing in a different position, perhaps they feel that he should have still done better given that he would have had some idea of the job he needed to do.
