Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been one of the few players to earn praise so far this season.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko has insisted to the Telegraph that the side can still feel the backing of supporters, despite their poor form at home this term.

Tottenham have not started their first full season in their new stadium in auspicious style.

Spurs have won just three of their first six games in front of their own supporters this term and they failed to beat Sheffield United at the weekend.

Tottenham were held to a 1-1 draw by the newly promoted side, and they were rather fortunate to even claim a point at full-time.

There is a growing frustration among Spurs fans about the way their team are currently performing, with the north London side currently sat in 14th place in the Premier League table.

It would have been easy for Spurs fans to turn on their side after a poor run of results, which could have made playing at home difficult. 

But Sissoko insists that Tottenham fans have been very supportive of their side, despite their poor form.

“We have to make our home a fortress,” the £30 million man (BBC Sport) said.

“Normally we have to take most of the points at home against every team, but we have a bit of a problem with that. It is a shame for us because the fans are pushing us along with their support, but at the end we don’t win.”

It looked as if Tottenham had turned the corner after they demolished Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League in midweek, but their performance at the weekend showed very little sign of improvement.

Spurs are now set for break from action due to international fixtures, but when they return they will take on West Ham United at the London Stadium.
