'One of the better ones': Some Spurs fans loved 21-year-old's display despite Mura loss

Spurs suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Mura in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night.

But despite the embarrassing team performance and shock result, some Tottenham fans sought to look on the bright side.

The 21-year-old made Antonio Conte’s starting XI and gave a good account of himself in the match.

Skipp set up Harry Kane for a chance in the first half, worked hard in the centre of the pitch and was fairly tidy in possession.

Although some of his passing was a bit wayward, he was nonetheless one of the better players in the Tottenham team.

Some Spurs fans praised Skipp after the match:

Spurs fell behind in the 11th minute as Tomi Horvat opened the scoring for the hosts.

Just after the hour mark, Tottenham’s task became more difficult as Ryan Sessegnon was sent off after two bookings.

Although Kane equalised in the 72nd minute, Spurs were caught out deep into injury time.

Mura broke as Tottenham pushed for a late winner and Amadej Marosa netted via a deflected shot to condemn the north Londoners to defeat.
