Tottenham fans thoroughly impressed by Harry Winks’ performance against Leicester City

Tottenham Hotspur recorded a huge victory 3-1 against Leicester City on Sunday afternoon to stay within touching distance of pace-setters Manchester City and Liverpool.

Spurs were far from their vintage best but they showed enough bottle to record three priceless points against the travelling Foxes courtesy of goals from Davinson Sanchez, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min.

Mauricio Pochettino opted to field Oliver Skipp alongside Harry Winks in midfield, and the latter continued to justify his rapidly growing reputation with an accomplished performance in the centre of the park.

It was the type of performance which Skipp should be using as a benchmark for the future, as the England international’s composure, precise vision and relentless work-rate provided a solid foundation for victory.

Recent exposure to regular first-team opportunities has enabled Winks to blossom this season and justify the hype which has surrounded his development ever since his excellent performance against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on October 17, 2017.

And his latest showing on Sunday has prompted some supporters on Twitter to compare the 23-year-old to both Steve Perryman and Luka Modric, and those compliments serve to illuminate how highly regarded he is in north London right now.
