Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Winks has been one of the brightest sparks in the Lilywhites academy and in English football in general over the past two seasons.

Since emerging as a first-team regular, the youngster has improved his game year on year, adding driving runs, ball retention, killer passes, and pace to burn.

The commentators kept saying we needed more width, they just sat in front of the goal so that wouldn’t have worked.
