Tottenham's Moussa Sissoko slated on Twitter after France draw

The Tottenham Hotspur star didn't have one of his better nights.

It wasn't a great night for Tottenham Hotspur's Moussa Sissoko on Monday.

The France international might have started and finished the 1-1 draw at home to Turkey in Euro 2020 qualifying, but the Spurs midfielder struggled.

Sissoko has been nothing short of a monster for Tottenham over the past 12 months after originally struggling to adapt to Mauricio Pochettino's side following a big-money switch from Newcastle in 2016.

But the 30-year-old posted a performance reminiscent of Sissoko of a previous time last night, with the combativeness and tireless running surprisingly absent from his game.


And fans on Twitter were less than complimentary over his display. Here's how they reacted:

It hasn't been a good season for Tottenham as a whole and Sissoko might be simply feeling a bit of a hangover following a dreadful few weeks.

Pochettino's side lost 7-2 to Bayern Munich and 3-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion in the week before the international break, and such a dismal run of form is bound to sap the players of some morale, too.

Sissoko and Spurs are back in action this weekend when Watford travel across the capital for a London derby.
