Ryan Sessegnon has been critical of his recent performances in a Tottenham Hotspur shirt but is determined to prove his worth to the team since his transfer from Fulham in the summer.

The 19-year-old made the move across London in August in a deal worth around £25million but a hamstring injury kept him out of action for the first few months of the season and only made his debut for the club in November.

Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino a month ago and the England Under-21 international has featured four times under the new Tottenham manager and even played the full 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Norwich City on December 28.

Despite featuring under Mourinho, Sessegnon has not been happy with his performances and insists he needs to work on his productivity in the final third.

“I’ve still got a lot to deliver to this team and step by step, with more games, fitness, I’ll get there,” he told the Spurs official website.

“I just want to get forward and get more crosses into the box. In the last two games I haven’t put decent, threatening crosses in, so that’s something I’ll be working on for the next game.”

Sessegnon began on the left side of midfield against Norwich before switching to left-back as Mourinho made a tactical change at Carrow Road but it took a late penalty from Harry Kane to rescue a point for Tottenham.

Spurs are in Premier League action on New Year’s Day when they travel to the St Mary’s Stadium to face Southampton. The Saints are unbeaten in three matches and claimed seven points which included wins over Chelsea and Aston Villa.
