Harry Winks has gone about his work brilliantly in the Tottenham midfield

Tottenham faced a setback at the beginning of December with a 4-2 away defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League and all eyes were on them to see how they responded.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have shown real character to put together an impressive five-game unbeaten run since that has got them back on track.

Spurs have defeated Southampton, Leicester City and Burnley in the Premier League to move third, while they also drew 1-1 out in Barcelona to progress to the Champions League group stages.

They capped it off with revenge on Arsenal in midweek by beating them 2-0 in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.

The likes of Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Lucas Moura have understandably taken the plaudits for their goals in those crucial fixtures.

He did miss out on the Burnley fixture, but started in the other four games and has been immense in the centre of the park.

Winks is developing into a crucial player under Pochettino and is showing why he should be firmly in the England set-up too.

The central midfielder has helped Spurs stay calm on the ball and also added an extra bite that was completely missing in the league defeat to Arsenal, which he only got a late substitute appearance in.

There is often a tendency for supporters to go overboard on their academy products, but that would not be the case with Winks as he has earned special credit for his consistent and intelligent midfield performances.
