Tottenham Hotspur supporters were left absolutely fuming on Thursday evening as their hopes of qualifying for Europe took a monumental dent.
Jose Mourinho’s side were well-beaten by Sheffield United, meaning they are now some seven points adrift of the top five with just six games remaining in the season.
The Blades scored against the run of play and never looked back. Sander Berge netted just after the hour mark, rounding off a swift counter-attack and the visitors thought they had equalised just seconds later but Harry Kane’s effort was controversially ruled out for handball.
If you can only bolster one full-back position this summer, do you...?
Buy a left-back
Buy a right-back
Lys Mousset and Oli McBurnie made matters worse in the second half before the Englishman nabbed a late consolation strike.
Some of the Spurs faithful were less than impressed with the game and the display from Ben Davies has been singled out for criticism on social media.
The 27-year-old picked up the second-worst rating (6.2) on SofaScore as he lost possession 17 times, had just four of his 14 long balls come off and won just one duel.
Davies was blasted for being a “pure liability” as well as being “trash” whilst others believe he’s stealing a wage from the club.
Here’s how the rest of the fanbase reacted…

Aurier, Sissoko, Davies, Sanchez, Dier, Lamela and Lucas just get them out the door, absolutely stealing a wage at this club. Pathetic. #THFC

Sissoko and Davies absolutely criminal

Let's face it if you saw a back 5 of Lloris, Aurier, Davies, Dier and Sanchez you would wet yourself laughing.

Need two new fullbacks. Aurier/Davies don't have the quality

We seriously need a big shape up in the window. Aurier And Davies need to go 100%

I’m sick and tired of Moussa Sissoko, Ben Davies, Eric Dier, Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier being in our starting lineup

We need a left back just as much as a right back. Ben Davies is just average as a starter

Just been thinking to myself about Ben Davies. Went through the league table and realised that there is a genuine case for him not starting for any Premier league sides. That’s embarrassing. Get rid and move on. Let’s give Sess a chance. #THFC #SHUTOT #MOTD
