Yves Bissouma has taken to social media to thank the Spurs fans for their support and he insisted that he had his Tottenham teammates are disappointed despite emerging with a point from the Emirates Stadium.

Ahead of the North London Derby, many pundits had written off Tottenham, suggesting that Ange Postecoglou’s men could be brought down crashing to earth after their impressive start to the season (talkSPORT).

In fact, the likes of Paul Merson even suggested that the home side would take Spurs to the cleaners if they tried at attack, with the pundit backing Mikel Arteta’s men to emerge 5-1 winners (Sportskeeda).

However, it was Arsenal and their supporters who got a dose of reality check from this new-look Tottenham team, who emerged out of the game with a deserved 2-2 draw.

Yves Bissouma wanted even more from the Emirates

The away side were in full control of the encounter for large parts, particularly in the second half, with Bissouma once again proving key to Spurs winning the midfield battle.

The 27-year-old has now taken to Instagram to insist that Tottenham were disappointed at failing to win at the Emirates.

Spurs Web Opinion

I was disappointed with Bissouma’s first-half display as I felt he was hiding a bit. Not only did he not show for the ball on multiple occasions but he often preferred to take the easy option even when the space opened up for him to carry it.

However, the second-half performance was much more like the Bissouma we know. He was excellent defensively and the Arsenal midfielders struggled to cope with the attention of him and Pape Sarr.
