Tottenham Hotspur were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Tottenham were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford tonight, and their performance was arguably their worst since Jose Mourinho took over.
Spurs were outplayed for much of the contest, with Winks and Sissoko failing to get a grip of the midfield.
To compound matters Sissoko gave away a penalty with a clumsy tackle on Marcus Rashford, which led to United’s second goal.
And Spurs fans claim that Winks and Sissoko simply cannot be used as a midfield duo again.

Hope winks and sissoko never start a game again this season— Luke (@Luke180101) December 4, 2019
Spurs will never win anything with Sissoko & Winks in the centre midfield. Both good players, but not good enough in the big games.— Lew (@LewisSpurs90) December 4, 2019
My god that half was awful...sissoko winks don’t work, never works and never will!! Change it now!— Brad Burke (@BradBurke_) December 4, 2019
Not getting anything from this game and don’t deserve to. Yet another “top” manager playing Sissoko and Winks together and thinking they’ll play well— Headhunter (@tommckenzie81) December 4, 2019
Mourinho does have other options in midfield, and may decide that Tanguy Ndombele needs to come back into Tottenham’s starting line-up at the weekend.
United’s victory has lifted them above Tottenham in the Premier League table, despite their impressive start to life under Mourinho.
