Tottenham Hotspur took a 1-0 victory over West Ham United on Saturday at the London Stadium to take all three points and the bragging rights as real football returned following the October international break.
Erik Lamela’s 44th-minute goal was enough to separate the sides come the fulltime whistle as whilst nobody would pretend it was a classic, Spurs dug in and did enough to take their chance when it came along and ensure another victory.
With some Spurs fans not being shy or slow to come forward with both praise and criticism on social media following matches in the modern-day game, French midfielder and former Newcastle United player Moussa Sissoko uses features in the latter camp when it comes to comments.
Not so, following our latest victory at the weekend as the 29-year-old was the star of the show for many fans following the final whistle.
Watched Moussa Sissoko play like Johan Cruyff today, i'll just leave that here.

Certainly made a refreshing change when looking at what to write post-game.
