Did Sissoko really have a good game?

I make no decision, just place the facts before you. His contribution is below. He beat his man on many occasions, but that means little if there is no end product. The complaint about Aaron Lennon, was that he had no end product, so did Sissoko?

17 passes 82.4% success rate, zero goal attempts after coming on for Son Heung-min after 56 minutes.

57 mins - He beat his man (Darmian) easily as soon as he came on and won a corner.
59:30 mins Beat full-back again, crossed for Alli on edge of box who didn't connect with his first time shot right.
60 mins - Beat his man and crossed for Carrick to clear (nowhere near any Spurs player). The ball came out to Wanyama who passed to Eriksen and he lost the ball.
62:35 mins - Doesn't beat his man but wins a throw-in.
64:45 mins - Turns his man, moves forward with the ball and plays a short pass to Eriksen.
65:17 mins - Beat his man, good deep cross into an area beat everybody.
65:34 mins - Pass inside to Walker.
66:55 mins - Beaten for a near-post header by Carrick from a corner, goal kick given though.
68:42 mins - Plays the ball into Kane who is fouled as he turns.
70:40 mins - Wins a bouncing ball on half-way and takes it forward, passing to Eriksen 25 yards from goal.
72:27 mins - Wins header from throw-in.
73:06 mins - Beaten to the ball by Darmian, Spurs throw-in.
74:40 mins - Beats Darmian again inside the area but fouls Carrick.
88:04 mins - Plays ball back to Walker from throw-in near the corner flag, gets the ball back and plays it between two defenders for Winks, who plays it back to Walker who puts in a poor cross.
89:45 mins - Plays the ball to Winks, beaten to the return, throw-in on halfway line.
90:57 mins - Received ball from and immediately plays it back to Winks, gets it back and plays a square ball to Wanyama 35 yards from goal.
91:20 mins - Sissoko on the left side crosses deep for Harry Kane but can't make contact with the ball.
92:29 mins - Long ball from Walker, tussle with Darmian but comes off Sissoko for a goal kick.
94:35 - Centrally Sissoko in space plays the ball left to N'Koudou 15 yards into the Man Utd half.
94:44 - Beats valencia to a ball and nicks it to Danny Rose who charges into the box and losses the ball (should have shot when he had the chance).
