Tottenham Hotspur have had a rollercoaster of a season so far with the North London club often struggling to find consistency on the pitch. Mauricio Pochettino has been forced to rotate his team to cope with recent injuries to some of their big-name stars. However, it has been a blessing in disguise for a few of their fringe players like Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela and Harry Winks who have often found themselves making appearances from the bench.
Winks’ Recent Form Has Been Impressive
Winks has recently caught the eye with a fantastic display against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League despite Spurs’ 4-2 loss on the night. He was Pochettino’s best player on the pitch which goes on to show how well he has performed even with limited game time this season.
Maybe, it’s time for the Argentine manager to reward the English midfielder with a regular starting berth in his first-team especially when the likes of Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele has often come under a lot of criticism for their recent displays at the heart of the Tottenham midfield.
At the tender age of 22, Winks has already proven his worth at the middle of the pitch for Spurs this season. The Hemel Hempstead born talent has made nine appearances for the North London giants across all competitions but is yet to register a goal or an assist so far.
What Does The English Prospect Add To Pochettino’s Team?
Winks is not known for his attacking prowess, but he is quite quick in midfield and has a habit of covering a lot of ground due to his willingness to work hard. He is also a competent passer of the ball and can link up play well with his teammates going forward. Pochettino has also utilised his ability to make deep runs from midfield behind the opposition backline which opens up space for the likes of Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son to wreak havoc in the final third.
Going by recent form, it is evident that Winks has a lot to offer in midfield and that is why Pochettino should consider playing him more often in place of Dier or Dembele so that the youngster can develop into a class act over the next few years and be a success at North London.
