Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have taken to Twitter to criticise the first-half performance of Tottenham left-back, Ben Davies.
Having been in and out of the Tottenham team so far this season, starting nine of a possible 20 Premier League fixtures for Jose Mourinho’s side prior to the Brighton & Hove Albion match, Davies was given the nod to start at left wing-back by the 57-year-old in Sunday evening’s clash against the Seagulls.
However, shortly after giving away a foul in the 15th minute of the game, Brighton scored the opener through Leandro Trossard, leading to many fans of Spurs taking to Twitter to slam the 27-year-old’s mistake, as well as his general performance in the fixture.
Is Davies good enough for Spurs?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say about the first-half performance of Ben Davies?
“is davies playing against us?”
“Ben Davies is the weak link in our defence right now. #THFC”
“Get davies out of this club every time he gets the ball passes back or gives a foul away! #COYS #BHATOT”
“there is no worse left back than ben davies”
“Dreadful, absolutely dreadful. You can see why it’s not Spurs’ Ben Davies Liverpool are after! All Brighton so far and it no surprise they’re ahead. #thfc #coys”
“Shocking defending from a Welsh International – DAVIES!!!! #BHATOT #COYS”
“How soft are our defenders? Davies easily bullied. Last 3 games we’ve been tissue paper. Too many poor players under a poor coach #THFC #COYS #BHATOT”
“How is Ben Davies still playing for us. He is so poor, miss Reguilon marauding down the left #COYS”
With Sergio Reguilon missing the fixture through injury, the Brighton game appeared to be a chance for Davies to stake his claim as Tottenham’s regular left-back, however, after seeing the comments of these Spurs fans, it would appear that the £15.75 million-rated man has done nothing to convince them he deserves a spot in the side.
