David Ginola responds after Tottenham’s official account tweets Harry Winks video

A challenge by the England midfielder against Aston Villa caught the eye.

Harry Winks will be hoping for an injury-free season in order to establish himself among Tottenham’s new-look central midfield options after the arrivals of Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso.

The England international is the best deep-lying playmaker at the club – no other Spurs player can dictate the game from deep like he can – and he will likely show that if he stays fit.

But it was another side of his game that caught the eye against Aston Villa on Saturday, as Tottenham’s official Twitter account tweeted out a video of a great tackle on the recovery.

And former Tottenham winger David Ginola seemed to enjoy the clip as he tweeted in reply, offering his own one-word verdict.


TBR’s View – Winks has a real opportunity this season

Winks can boss a game from deep and should now be surrounded by midfielders who will make runs ahead of him, which creates space for him to play, as well as options for him to pick out.

There’s a spot in the England side potentially for a player who can do what he does – but he missed out on the World Cup and the Nations League squads because of concerns over his fitness.

But a deep player has to be able to do the other side of the game at times, and Winks showed pace and aggression that may not necessarily be widely associated with him on opening day against Villa – which Ginola quite rightly liked.
