Tottenham fans heap praise on Winks display vs Barcelona

Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to their defeat to Barcelona, and they’re taking a lot of promise from the performance of Harry Winks.

Winks’ performance vs Real Madrid last season will stand out long in the memory of every Tottenham supporter, but the young Englishman didn’t have quite the same display against Barcelona on Wednesday.

The Catalan giants took the lead almost immediately after a mistake from Hugo Lloris, and Ivan Rakitic doubled the lead before half-time with an incredible volley.

Lionel Messi’s second-half brace ensured goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela were only consolations, but the improved display of Winks in the second half has got fans talking.

The 22-year-old was completely overrun in the first half, but steadily grew into the game after the interval.

Playing against the likes of Sergio Busquets will only make him stronger, and fans are loving his second-half display, which included one particularly fantastic tackle to stop a rampaging Messi.
