Where you getting your ratings from?

You said his displays were average to above average, I suggest you watch the Barca game again.
Below 7 is average to above average no? .

I was in Barca for the game and watched it since. No need to watch a third time. He was better at Inter and Everton than he was at Barca

That's my opinion.

He's played 4 full games in 10 days - he is exhausted, imo.

I won't be shocked if he does not start against Cardiff - which would be his 5th game in 13 days - going 90 in every match.

Between December 8 and 29 - Sissoko started and played 90 in 7 matches. Players are not machines....

He's machine but I agree. He's absolutely spent.
Wouldnt surprise me if Tinktank gets his wish tomorrow and Foyth starts with Winks or Skipp.

Key involvement with 2 of our 3 goals today, the first with a deft first time pass, the second with a great powerful burst forward and then a simple but well weighted pass into feet. Stats won't show goals or assists but eyes tell you that without him, those two goals don't get scored.

A great pass late in the second half to create a break for a chance.

Glad he’s finally stepped up and shown his worth. If he hadn’t we would be in serious trouble.

I know his shot was pretty bad at the end, but I was really pleased to see him at least take it on. The guy is growing and growing with confidence with each passing game. He was heavily involved in two of the goals, and played some really nice passes. The transformation is unreal.

Honestly if Sissoko could start banging in 5-10 goals a season he'd rapidly be getting close to being our best all-round player right now.

Let's not get carried away... I'm more than happy with him and his transformation into a vital part of our squad. Dembele never came close to 10 goals for us, and he's been fantastic too... just looked it up, in fact he scored 10 goals in total for us which is pretty irritating

Agreed.

He's playing brilliantly but simply hasn't got the confidence to score. Earlier on in the game he had chances to shoot but passed instead, and when he did go through on goal near the end, I think we all knew he would miss.

I don't understand why Poch hasn't got him on triple or quadruple shooting practice!
