Mousa Dembele put an end to his good run of form with a terrible performance against West Ham.
Maurico Pochettino's decision to move Dembele in to the 'number 10' role in Tottenham's previous three matches had paid dividends with the midfielder playing a prominent part in the victories over West Brom and Arsenal, while also scoring against Liverpool, but this good run ended in Week 26. Dembele was dreadfully slow in possession, giving the ball away on numerous occasions - including during the lead up to West Ham's opening goal - and by half-time the manager had seen enough and substituted the Belgian for Christian Eriksen. We must wait to see how much of a set back this performance will be, but for now Dembele is best avoided. Note that Spurs do not play a Premier League fixture in Week 27 due to the Capital One Cup final with Chelsea. Feb 24 - 9:33 AM
