‘Absolutely useless when he starts’: Some fans destroy Spurs star after 1-0 defeat

Tottenham Hotspur’s first game of the new year was certainly not one to remember as the team succumbed to a frustrating loss away to Southampton on Wednesday.

After the 2-2 draw against Norwich City over the weekend, Spurs knew a proper response was needed in another clash with a team looking to avoid relegation.

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho decided to start Lucas Moura against the Saints, but the Brazilian star was not unable to make an impact on the day in what was another dull show at the St. Mary’s stadium.

After going 1-0 behind, the away side never really looked likely to pull themselves back into the game with a Harry Kane goal which was ruled out for offside, being one of the few notable moments from the attacking unit.

After witnessing Moura’s performance against Southampton, some Spurs fans were quick to question the fact that the Brazilian was picked to play in the first place.
