‘Vincent Janssen You Bad Man’ – Tottenham Fans React To The Striker’s Performance Against Swansea

Vincent Janssen has struggled big time since coming to Tottenham for £17 million from Ajax. Spurs fans have been in total disapproval of the Dutch striker that he has already been linked with an exit from White Hart Lane. Janssen has made 22 appearances in the league, but 16 out of that have been as a substitute. One of those substitute appearances came in the midweek action against Swansea City.

The striker was brought on as the replacement for Mousa Sissoko with Spurs’ title challenge hanging in the balance. Wayne Routledge scored in the 11th minute to give Swansea a lead. Even though Spurs created several chances in the first half, they were unable to put away those chances due to lack of clinical finishing. In the second half, the Welsh side put up a much improved defensive display. As time went on, it looked like Spurs would not be able to get the three points. At the same time, Chelsea were winning in the game against Manchester City and this situation would have re-established the blues’ 10 point lead at the top of the table.

However, Spurs produced an incredible comeback to score 3 goals in the final six minutes of the game. The equaliser came through Dele Alli, and the winning goal was scored by Heung-Min Son. One of the key aspects that led to the winning goal was the assist from Vincent Janssen. After coming on as a 61st minute substitute, the striker provided a flick on to Son, which was converted by the South Korean. Christian Eriksen added a third to make the game safe for Spurs.

Following the game, Janssen has been receiving plenty of positive response from the Spurs supporters. The same fans who have been calling for the striker to leave the club – only a few months ago – say that the striker may be given time to prove his quality at White Hart Lane.

Janssen may not see his future on the basis of this game alone. As a 22-year-old, he will be aware of the intense competition for places at Tottenham. Even if he goes on a great scoring run, Janssen may be unable to replace Harry Kane, who is clearly the star striker at the club. After being signed on as a backup for Kane, Janssen may be set for the same role as long as he remains at the club. Transfer rumours will once again swirl around the striker come the summer.
