Harry Winks has insisted that he meant to score against Morecambe this afternoon when he whipped a free-kick into the top corner. 

The midfielder revealed he was aiming for the back post with the intention that it would either trouble the keeper or give his teammates a chance to flick it on.

When claiming ‘this one I meant’, Winks was clearly referring to his 56-yard goal against Ludogorets in the Europa League, which appeared to be intended as a long-range pass to Gareth Bale.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I understand what he means here. He didn’t necessarily hit it with the thought it would fly into the top corner, but he was aiming for a dangerous area that would cause problems either directly or via a teammate flick-on. Great goal!
