The moment Davidson Sanchez was dispossessed by thin air

Davinson Sanchez made a complete fool of himself on Wednesday night, as Tottenham Hotspur crashed out of the FA Cup, getting tackled by the air.

That moment when Monty Burns asks Grandpa Simpson if he can go five seconds without embarrassing himself before his trousers fall down moments later feels like the perfect analogy for Spurs.

For every win over Manchester City, there's a shellacking from Leicester City days later, for every win in a London derby against Chelsea, there's a cupset.

Iliman Ndiaye's striker was enough to separate Spurs from Championship Sheffield United, with Harry Kane's reaction to his late miss the sigh of a man who knew another chance at a trophy had gone begging.



Roy Keane took the chance to take another dig at the team who he loves to hate, comparing them to a West Ham side who'd just lost 3-1 to Manchester United.

If all that wasn't quite enough embarrassment for the team, Sanchez managed to leave himself absolutely red faced by being tackled by the wind.

The centre back was up near half way when Pape Matar Sarr squared him the ball, and with no one near him, he managed to lose the ball.


Speaking after the game, former Spurs player Jamie O'Hara used the former Ajax defender as an example for the issues with the team's squad players.

He argued that if they couldn't be trusted to beat a Championship team then they weren't good enough for the north London side.

"Making a point of resting players and play your best team, you’re playing Sheffield United in the Championship," O'Hara said on talkSPORT.


"These players who are on the bench, Richarlison, he played in the World Cup, he’s a top player. Sanchez, we paid £45 million for Sanchez. You’ve got to play these players at some point.

"If you can’t play them against Sheffield United, what’s the point of them being there? What is the point!"

Antonio Conte's side now only have two competitions left to focus on, with the league and the Champions League their only chances of success.

They'll be hoping to keep hold of their fourth spot, with Newcastle United four points behind them with two games in hand, in Europe they'll have to overcome a one goal loss to AC Milan in the second leg.
