A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Davinson Sanchez’s performance during the club’s FA Cup win over Middlesbrough on Tuesday.
Jose Mourinho’s men are through to the fourth round after seeing off the Championship side at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Goals from Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela put Spurs 2-0 up early on. But Boro would get one back towards the end of the second-half to make things a little less comfortable.
The result means that Tottenham are still looking for only their second clean sheet since Mourinho took charge. And it appears that some of the blame for some questionable defending is largely being placed on Sanchez.
The Colombian went into the tie off the back of an impressive display against Liverpool. But it seems that he was unable to replicate that sort of performance in their latest fixture.
Whoscored.com shows that he was actually tidy in possession, with 62 of his 65 passes finding a teammate. No player who managed more than 10 passes during the tie boasted a better success rate.
However, plenty of Spurs fans were not happy with the centre-back’s display against Boro. They have suggested that he was shaky throughout and completely outshone by Japhet Tanganga.
The frustration with Sanchez appears to be to do with his capability to produce colossal performances. It is proving difficult to know which version of the centre-back is going to turn up for each game.
And some are clearly convinced that the 23-year-old should be doing a lot better with more than 100 appearances for the club under his belt.
Here is what some of the Tottenham supporters made of his performance…
I think Davinson Sanchez biggest issue is concentration. In low intensity games he performs poorly. But when under high pressure like Saturday he was fantastic. Needs to sort it out sharpish 🙄

Lo Celso ,Lamela, Sessegnon very good performances but wow Tanganga what a performance. Sanchez abd Dier were absolutely awful.

Unusually edgy performance from Sanchez tonight. #coys

That was broadly very positive. Sanchez had an absolute stinker, Dier still looks totally unfit and we were incredibly wasteful in front of goal… but:
Lo Celso 💙

Dier, Sanchez, Moura and Eriksen all woeful tonight.
On a brighter note, Tanganga, Lo Celso, Winks and Lamela all played really well.
Dont feel right slating Moura, but he was a pretty poor 😥

Davinson Sanchez has been awful today! 100 games? He’s not the answer. We wouldn’t have to be asking the question about him after that long if he was.
