‘Guts & passion’, ‘Keep going’ – 2016 arrival singled out by lots of Tottenham fans

Victor Wanyama has had a difficult 2018-19 campaign at Tottenham Hotspur.

Indeed, injuries have restricted the midfielder to just 15 appearances in all competitions, but he was named in the starting XI against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

Spurs are not exactly flooded with central midfielders at the moment and Wanyama benefited from Harry Winks’ absence to start.

The 27-year-old – a 2016 arrival from Southampton – could not prevent his side from suffering a 4-3 defeat on the night, but the away-goals rule sent Tottenham into the semi-finals of the Champions League.

There were times when Wanyama conceded possession, which is to be expected due to the amount of time that he has spent on the sidelines.

However, the Kenyan did a lot of good things at the Etihad Stadium and it would be fair to say that the Spurs fans were pleased with his performance against Pep Guardiola’s side.
