Fans appear to have mixed opinions on Moussa Sissoko’s tackle in Saturday’s early kick-off between Leicester City and Tottenham. 

The incident occurred 20 minutes into the first-half, when Sissoko flew in on James Maddison in a tackle that has certainly divided opinions on Twitter.

It was certainly a strong challenge from Sissoko, but my reaction was that it was a fair and he was extremely unlucky to give away a foul and receive a yellow card.

Though he does go into the tackle with two feet, it was not a reckless challenge and he clearly won the ball. 

Was it a foul?
