Tottenham battled to a 1-0 win against bottom side Cardiff City at Wembley on Saturday. While the game was mostly devoid of quality, Moussa Sissoko was the key player in a dull affair which was settled by Eric Dier’s tenth minute winner.

The French international has been limited to three Premier League appearances for Spurs this season, after a poor second year saw the 29-year old net just once in 33 appearances. Sissoko has often been the subject of criticism after his switch from Newcastle to Spurs in the summer of 2016.

With key midfield figures in Mousa Dembele, Dele Ali and Christian Eriksen all missing through injury, Sissoko was given the opportunity in the centre of the Spurs midfield. Sissoko putting an outstanding display against Cardiff as he made his pitch to be a regular starter in Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield.

Spurs fans were well impressed with what they saw from Sissoko and hope he can continue performing to the standard he showed on Saturday.

The performance however may have come at a bad time for Sissoko. He now has to wait until after the international break to continue building on his impressive performance. Tottenham next travel to West Ham, a game Sissoko will be looking to start and make his own.
