In Focus: Harry Winks

Tottenham Hotspur made it difficult for themselves yet again this evening after conceding an early goal to PSV in the Champions League.

However, two late goals from Harry Kane kept Spurs’ European hopes alive.

Not only does it give them a glimmer of hope in the Champions League, but it helps to cement a place in the Europa if they fail.

One man who simply has to get the man of the match award for me this evening is young Harry Winks.

He was a prime example of everything good about Spurs, and everything this team is striving to achieve.

Pochettino named Winks as the only out and out centre mid this evening, mainly due to injuries to Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele.

However, Winks covered the ground of two or three men on a big Wembley pitch tonight.

He got his foot stuck in whenever needed and whenever possible, tracking back to tackle while also pressuring from the front.

His passing was exemplarily as usual as he kept things ticking over in midfield.

He seems to burst through the lines whenever there’s a chance to push Tottenham up the field.

He has even added pinpoint long balls to his game, including a wonderful late cross that Llorente should have buried with his head.

Winks was simply awesome this evening.
