Tottenham have struggled in the department in the absence of the Kenyan captain, who is just coming back from an injury picked during the team's pre-season tour of the US.
Wanyama returned to action for the first time this campaign in Spurs’ defeat against Liverpool. Spurs’ campaign, both at home and in Europe has been awful; with Eric Dier and Harry Winks still struggling to find form.
Here are some of the comments from fans after Spurs lost their third straight match against Inter Milan.
Dier, Vertongen, Dembele and Davies need to stop playing for us for a while. KWP needs a chance and Wanyama needs to be our rock again. I'd like to see Lorente start the next game with Son and Lucas. — Ant (@PeaheadTHFC) September 19, 2018
Please explain to me and all spurs fans the reason for dembele staying on when in distress when wanyama is available, Erikson playing upfront with Kane when moura is on, and why we were playing time wasting football with 25 mins to go and not pushing for that 2nd goal? #THFC — Rankor keeper (@getbaleback) September 18, 2018
