Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to give their verdict on new signing Moussa Sissoko after the attacking midfielder got his first start as a Spurs player in the 1-0 win over Sunderland on Sunday.

The former Newcastle United man has already split opinion among the White Hart Lane faithful, with plenty of supporters questioning the logic behind signing a player that has just been relegated for £30 million.

Sissoko’s comments in the past about wanting to join Arsenal mean that he has work to do to win over the Spurs fans.

The France international put in an industrious performance against Sunderland but lacked a little bit of quality in the final third when he found himself in promising positions.

Sissoko’s physical attributes are clearly one of his main strengths and his presence in the Spurs squad gives Mauricio Pochettino a different option in wide areas.

The Spurs fans appear divided in their opinion of the French star, with some impressed with his work-rate and performance in the victory over David Moyes’ men.

However, others were not taken by Sissoko in his first start, with the most damning critiques seeing the new man compared to former Tottenham players Paulinho and Emmanuel Adebayor.

Here are the best tweets.
