Harry Winks is Tottenham through and through, a boyhood fan, and a product of the Spurs youth academy.
The young midfielder took it upon himself to request the number 8 shirt at the beginning of this season, certainly putting his feet into some pretty big shoes.
However, after a nasty injury lay off over the summer, Winksy has certainly filled those shoes and then some.
He has made that starting holding midfield position his own, and you wouldn’t fancy anyone taking it off him any time soon.
Winks has added pace, power, and a vast range of passing to his game, as well as the ability to burst through the lines of defence when given the chance.
Despite still being so young, Winks is fast becoming one of the most promising holding mids in the Premier League, and here are the stats to prove it.
Over the past month, Winks has the fifth most touches out of any player in the Prem with 423. He also has the third highest number of recoveries with 43.
From a Spurs squad perspective, Winks boasts the most passes (335), the joint most passes in the final third (95) and the second most tackles with 11.
