Sissoko has struggled to win over the Spurs fans since his big money move from Newcastle in 2016. Last season he did well, but this season he has shown more consistency in his game.
The 29-year-old has been getting regular games under Mauricio Pochettino in 2018-19 campaign, and the Argentine has showered praise on him time to time this season.
While Sissoko is not the most creative player in the side, nor he is gifted like Son, Eriksen or Alli, he brings energy to the side. He has been indeed ‘outstanding’ in the last few months, and rightly deserves the recognition he is getting.
