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.
