In Focus: Harry Winks

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur grabbed all three points against Fulham this evening with virtually the last touch of the ball.

Harry Winks popped up as an unlikely finisher with his head in the 93rd minute to seal the victory after a rather lack-lustre Spurs performance.

Tottenham were sloppy in possession, they failed to carve out many significant chances, and when they did, Llorente was unable to finish.

With all the injuries up front and in central midfield, you would expect problems in those departments, but Spurs would pretty poor in defence today too, with Kieran Trippier, Davinson Sanchez, and Toby Alderweireld all struggling.

However, one man who stepped up with a man of the match performance was young Harry Winks.

Let’s not forget that Winks has played nearly every single minute in the centre of that midfield for the past few months now, with very little rest in between games.

All of these minutes in his weary legs, and Winks was still able to run the midfield largely on his own today, with only Eriksen as company.

Winksy managed to cover the length and breadth of the pitch both offensively and defensively, even finding the energy to mop up when his teammates made mistakes on the ball.

All this, and he was still able to get in the box in the dying seconds to nod home the winner.

Very few Spurs lads stepped up in the absence of big names today, but Harry Winks did the business.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Lack Lustre !!! Spurs were dreadful and I dread to think how we will do against Chelsea and BD.If any Spurs fan thinks that we have the depth in the squad to compete at this level they are deluded,Would Parrot or Sterling been worse than Llorente !!Please Levy get Peter Crouch on loan because at least he knows where the opposition goal is,To invest in a back up is not panic buying it is an insurance policy.The stadium has got “Leeds” all over it

  2. This situation is unbelievable! our small squad of players are having to play so many games so of course they are going to get injured from overplaying without a rest! and now we are bringing in academy players that are nowhere near ready to fill in you couldn’t make it up! Llorente who has never been good enough and was being sold is now being used! why? why not sell him and buy someone good we need up front? or get a loan in! and now Dele is injured are we going to get someone in or just let our season crumble? the inaction from Levy is astounding and unbelievable i can’t believe this pratt! Levy clearly does not want us to win anything otherwise he would bring in a couple that we need but no the tight weasle sits on his hands as usual, we will win nothing with him there because he is too tight! why not get a striker in at least on loan? or if reported right(i don’t believe it) we have £50 million to spend if need be? at such a crucial stage of maybe winning a trophy Levy does nothing as usual! he is useless and always will be a major obstacle to our progression! Coys!
