Fans reckon Richarlison ‘must be cursed’ after he misses huge chance for Spurs

Football fans have slammed Richarlison for his performance against Bournemouth on Saturday lunchtime.

Tottenham Hotspur have started to get into the swing of things under Ange Postecoglou – but the Brazilian was still less than impressive as the Lilywhites claimed three more points.

And one moment drew the fury of Spurs fans more than others, with Richarlison finding himself one-on-one with a golden opportunity to double Spurs' lead.

However, Richarlison stumbled over the ball and wasn't able to direct his shot on target. Spurs fans were quick to vent their frustration towards the Brazilian on social media – with some even claiming he must be "cursed".

"Richarlison must be cursed. That’s the only explanation," one fan joked. While a second tweeted: "Richarlison being one of the worst strikers in the Premier League needs to be talked about more…"

"Since his debut for Tottenham, Richarlison has one Premier League goal…And we all know how pointless that goal was," a third fumed. And another added: "He’s the worst striker in the league, Weghorst was better!"

On the other end of the scale, James Maddison was fantastic for Spurs – and he opened the scoring at the Vitality Stadium.

Dejan Kulusevski was finally able to double their lead in the second half, with Spurs now securing seven points from a possible nine in their opening three games.
