For someone like Harry Winks, who has graduated through the ranks in North London and comes from a family of Spurs fans (Hemel Today), there has to be no better feeling than leading his beloved side out for a Premier League match.

It was a big moment for the 24-year-old when he was handed the captain’s armband by Jose Mourinho on Sunday for the visit of Wolves after Hugo Lloris missed out with a groin strain.

While the midfielder revealed the pride he felt in being named captain, he said the result put a dampener on the occasion.

The England star also insisted that the team played well throughout the game and deserved to get more for their efforts after suffering a 3-2 loss which has seriously dented their hopes of a top four finish.

I also felt that our performance wasn’t anywhere near as bad as some fans are painting it out to be. We were certainly good enough to at least merit a draw from the game. However, I didn’t think Winks had a particularly good game. He was trying to force the issue a little too much and kept giving the ball away.
