Tottenham midfielder Gedson Fernandes made his first start for the club in the FA Cup fixture against Southampton – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were not too impressed by his performance.
Jose Mourinho’s side recorded a 1-1 away draw against Southampton in the FA Cup fourth round and will need a replay to separate them.
Sofiane Boufal scored a late equaliser for the Saints after Heung-Min Son had put Spurs into the lead in the 58th minute.
The North London club now turn their attention to a home match against Manchester City next weekend in the league before their cup replay, but they are at least in the pot for the fifth round draw on Monday.
A selection of Spurs supporters on social media discussed Fernandes after his first start.
The Portuguese midfielder lasted 56 minutes before he was substituted off by Mourinho and is still trying to get up to speed.
He showed a few glimpses of quality with some dribbles and interceptions, but never really set the game alight and was taken off.
The 21-year-old previously made two cameo appearances from the bench in the league for Spurs following his January arrival on loan from Benfica and it looks like he still has work to do to win over supporters.
Here are some Spurs fans on Fernadnes:
Serge and Tanganga are having solid matches. The guys up front need to show some consistency. Gedson is so far non-influential. #COYS

Not bad – Son and Moura should both have scored, great clearance off the line from Tanganga – Gedson not really in the game #COYS

Get Gedson off and get Ndombele on. You can see why he hasn’t played for Benfica in a while. Proper bang average. #coys

Gedson Fernandes obviously needs time to get use to the league but worried that he doesn’t seem to know how to get involved in play, will take time to get use to the English league #THFC

Was signing gedson needed? We could have signed DM instead of him.

Barely seen the first half, it was bland and frustrating I hear. Are we playing much better without Gedson? #thfc

Wasn’t very good but you gotta give him time to adjust.
