The Tottenham Hotspur left-back is coming under fire.
Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter are seriously sticking the boot into left-back Danny Rose following this evening’s 2-1 defeat at Liverpool.
Mauricio Pochettino decided to play Rose ahead of Ben Davies in one of several inclusions in the Spurs XI which annoyed some supporters, the other being Tanguy Ndombele on the bench.
The Tottenham defender had a decent first half, which Pochettino’s side won 1-0, but it didn’t take long for the 29-year-old to infuriate many fans of the North London club.
Liverpool hit back on 52 minutes when Jordan Henderson volleyed into the corner of the net from an acute angle, but the Reds captain was completely unmarked as a result of Rose misjudging the flight of Fabinho’s cross, and then being unable to head it clear.
Here’s how Tottenham fans reacted to the error on Twitter:
Winks and Rose been our worst players well done Poch— Jack.A (@4RFJack) October 27, 2019

Sunday league Danny Rose strikes again #COYS— Chidozie Ononeze (@cheedz05) October 27, 2019
Horrible defending from Rose there— Fantasista (@Aarsheya7) October 27, 2019
Moments before Henderson’s equaliser, Son Heung-min’s effort crashed against the crossbar as Pochettino’s side came millimeters away from doubling their lead.
To go from nearly being 2-0 ahead, to being pegged back in an instant, definitely enhanced the sour factor from Tottenham fans, who then had to watch as Mo Salah fired the hosts ahead from the penalty spot after Serge Aurier fouled Sadio Mane in the box.
The North Londoners, who sit 12th in the table, have only won one Premier League game since mid-September – a 2-1 win over Southampton.
