‘He has been horrendous,’ some Tottenham fans slam defender after Burnley defeat

Juan Foyth

A few Tottenham Hotspur fans have expressed their displeasure over the performance of Juan Foyth during the club’s surprise 2-1 league defeat at the hands of Burnley on the road.

Mauricio Pochettino made the surprise decision to play Foyth ahead of Davinson Sanchez from the starting lineup against the Clarets with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen occupying the other central defensive positions.

However, his performance was far from impressive and the supporters were particularly unimpressed with his marking of Chris Wood from the corner, where the New Zealander headed in the opening goal for the hosts.

Foyth has impressed with his passing attributes over the course of the current campaign but they have been occasions where he has lacked concentration and lost out on physical battles with opposition marksman.

With the defeat, Spurs face a potential title blow, given they could drop eight points behind the lead of the table, should Liverpool overcome Manchester United on the road on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Pochettino may rethink the position of Foyth ahead of the midweek London derby against Chelsea and it won’t come as a surprise, if Sanchez returns to the backline for the Stamford Bridge trip.
