Opinion: Tottenham’s three winners and three losers of the season so far

Due to the outbreak of Covid amongst the Spurs squad, it seems we will have to wait a while to have Spurs back in our lives which might be good for the stress levels.

As part of my weekly feature, I like to look at three winners and losers for the week. As we won’t be in action this week, I thought I would twist the weekly feature and have it reflect on the season instead, seeing as we are now almost halfway through.

Winners

Oliver Skipp

After an impressive loan spell at Norwich in which he won the Championship, a lot of Spurs fans were excited about his return.

It is fair to say he has exceeded all our expectations! He has locked down that midfield position and I would argue has been the first name on the team sheet this season.

A string of powerful displays in which he has displayed energy, commitment, great tackling and a link between defence and midfield has landed him on this list.

Son 

A usually reliable player for us has once again proven his worth this season. With Kane’s underwhelming performances, Son has stepped up.

A winner against City at the beginning of the season and a couple more goals along the way has cemented him as our top scorer this season.

Despite a few moments of inconsistency, it has never been for a lack of trying, which is more than can be said for some members of the squad.

Hugo Lloris

Despite his advancing age, Lloris has still proven himself to be one of the world’s top goalkeepers’ year in and year out.

This year has been no different. With 6 clean sheets in 15 appearances in the league, an impressive number considering some of the defenders in front of him, the France number one has been a bright spark for Spurs.

His influence and leadership remain just as important as ever and, hopefully, we can lock him down to a new contract.

Losers

Harry Kane

I think this is an obvious one. Which is a shame, to say the least.

One of my favourite all-time players for Spurs has slowly become a ghost of his former self.

One goal in the league emphasises this. Whether it was his failed move or the Euros final loss, something has knocked Kane and he hasn’t been right all season.

As time goes on, it’s looking like more and more of a mistake that we didn’t sell him.

Matt Doherty

This one might be harsh, as he hasn’t featured so much, but when he has, he has been poor.

A poor debut season for him left me underwhelmed, however, I was ready to give him a second chance.

I thought his reunion with Nuno would bring some life back into him, but it wasn’t to be. And after his snub of Conte’s hug, I don’t think we will be seeing much more of him in a spur’s shirt.

A disappointment after the excitement has signing brought some Spurs fans.

Steven Bergwijn  

This man’s debut goal against City seems like a lifetime ago now. What happened to this young promising talent?

He just has not been able to settle at Spurs at all and looks more likely to leave the club in January than to lockdown a starting place in the team.

It might be best for all parties involved if he moves on, however, it would be a shame, as there still is a player in there, just clearly not for Spurs.

At the end of the season, I will do another one of these and we will see how things have changed from the point we are at now.

Hopefully, Spurs won’t be out of action for too long and I want to wish everyone at the club suffering from the Covid outbreak a speedy recovery.

Come On You Spurs!
