Many Tottenham Hotspur fans were praising Moussa Sissoko for his performance against Cardiff City.
The France international is often the scapegoat at Tottenham but his display against the Bluebirds was impressive.
Spurs managed to labour to a 1-0 victory over Neil Warnock’s Cardiff side, who sit at the bottom of the table.
They could only manage one goal despite Cardiff playing part of the game with ten men.
Nonetheless, Spurs picked up three points, thanks to an early goal from Eric Dier.
But it was Sissoko who stole the headlines with a performance to silence his critics – at least temporarily.
After gifting Barcelona their fourth goal in midweek, the 29-year-old bounced back with an impressive showing against Cardiff.
Some fans were surprised to see Sissoko named in the starting line-up. But he justified his place with a strong performance.
Here are some words that Spurs fans were saying about Sissoko after he impressed against Cardiff.
You were genuinely our best player today mate
