Tottenham Hotspur put in a disappointing display in their 2-2 draw against Olympiacos in the Champions League on Wednesday night, and midfielder Harry Winks was one of the few players to draw some praise from Spurs fans on Twitter.
For the second time this month, the north London outfit surrendered a two-goal lead away from home to end up with just a single point, with many of Mauricio Pochettino’s men simply failing to turn up in Athens.
However, Winks made his sixth successive start this season in the Greek capital, and he was one of the few players that showed good energy and work-rate throughout the 90 minutes, outshining club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele alongside him in the centre of the park, as backed up by Football London’s match ratings.
The England international’s display didn’t go unnoticed by Tottenham supporters on the popular social media platform, with one saying he is “essential to us right now”.
Another individual went a step further and added that ‘if Ndombele is worth £65m, then he was £90m today’.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

He is now consistently one of our best players and one of the first on the team-sheet

I’m normally a critic of Winks because I feel he needs to add either more threat in the attacking 3rd or be defensively better. Not being good at either but being a CM is a bit pointless. However I thought tonight he was easily our best player.
