Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko hasn’t always been Mr Popular at Spurs, but he had a storming game against Chelsea on Saturday.
Watch the video clip below as the Frenchman made up tremendous ground to race back and absolutely clatter Blues midfielder Mateo Kovacic with a superb crunching tackle.
Needless to say, Tottenham fans – and probably a fair few neutrals too – absolutely loved it, with the incident getting plenty of love on Twitter afterwards, as well as a general shock at seeing Sissoko play so well in such a big game…
Sissoko with the tackle of the match so far !
Welcome to the Prem Kovacic !

That’s a simply incredible tackle from Moussa Sissoko to deny Mateo Kovacic advancing forward for Chelsea.
