Tottenham Hotspur went into their match against Arsenal with an injury crisis in the middle of the park.
With Harry Winks and Eric Dier both ruled out of the game, Mauricio Pochettino decided to hand a start to Victor Wanyama who just recently returned after a long spell on the sidelines.
With the Kenyan unsurprisingly not being fit enough to complete ninety minutes, Tottenham actually ended the game with Danny Rose in midfield. However, Moussa Sissoko who has been an almost ever-present in the Tottenham midfield this season put in a typically energetic display.
The Frenchman got up and down the pitch throughout the ninety minutes, helping Spurs win back possession several times and drove forward with the ball.
Sissoko, whose performances this season have seen him completely turn his Spurs career around, didn’t have the best of outings against Burnley and Chelsea. Against Arsenal, however, he once again seemed back to his best as the likes of Xhaka and Guendouzi struggled to contain him.
Here are the 29-year-old’s stats from yesterday’s game:
Moussa Sissoko vs. Arsenal:
82.5% pass accuracy
8 take-ons attempted
10 ball recoveries
3 tackles attempted
1 chance created
