He took to social networking site Twitter to express his reaction after the game. He tweeted:

Trips please cross the ball more. The most annoying thing is watching u shape to cross then cut back and pass it to sissiko!!! Ur main skill is crossing the ball do it more. Kane and llorente were in the box tonight begging for that ball.
