Tottenham supporters single one player out for abuse & one for praise following damaging West Ham defeat


The Tottenham Hotspur faithful have taken to social media in their numbers this evening, to highlight the individual efforts of a pair of their side’s stars up against West Ham.

Antonio makes the difference

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were of course back in action a short time ago.

After bringing to an end a dismal spell of domestic form courtesy of back-to-back downings of Aston Villa and Newcastle, the Lilywhites this afternoon made the trip to the London Stadium, for a derby showdown with West Ham.

Spurs headed into proceedings aware that a 3-point haul would guide them, at least temporarily, back into the top-4, ahead of the upcoming showdown between Manchester United and Liverpool.

When all was said and done in the English capital, however, the visitors were brought firmly back down to earth.

A flat, frankly lifeless display ultimately culminated in Nuno and co. being put to the sword by a solitary goal.

Michail Antonio proved match-winner on the day, breaking free at the front post inside the closing twenty minutes to slot home Aaron Cresswell’s whipped corner from the left:

Kane slammed/Romero hailed

In turn, on the back of the action coming to a close on Saturday afternoon, it should come as little surprise to hear of a whole host of Tottenham’s stars being singled out for criticism.

The likes of Sergio Reguilon, Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son majorly struggled to oversee any sort of positive influence on proceedings, amid, as outlined above, an underwhelming all-round performance.

One member of Nuno’s squad in particular, however, has been subjected to, by some distance, the most widespread condemnation.

The player in question? Harry Kane.

Star hitman Kane looked alarmingly disinterested across the 90 minutes at the London Stadium, managing just a solitary effort on target.

It was his attempt (or lack thereof) to keep Michail Antonio at bay en route to the solitary goal of the afternoon, though, which saw the Spurs faithful truly up in arms, with just some of the social media highlights showcased below:

Despite their side’s abysmal showing, and disappointing result, however, the Lilywhites faithful, to their credit, were also sure to pinpoint the standout efforts of one member of their starting XI on Sunday – Cristian Romero:
