Spurs fans react to Oliver Skipp display in Watford win
A number of Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Oliver Skipp after the midfielder shone in their win over Watford on Sunday.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have now won all three of their Premier League games this season. This time, it was Son Heung-min who bagged the decisive goal.
It was perhaps not Tottenham’s strongest performance. But it was another hard-fought win that leaves them top of the table heading into the international break.
And one of the players to really impress for Spurs was Skipp.
Only Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg completed a higher number of successful passes than the 20-year-old (Whoscored). Meanwhile, Sergio Reguilon was the only Tottenham player to better his tally of three challenges.
Skipp has been superb since coming into the side upon his return from Norwich in the summer.
He looks to have formed a really impressive partnership with Hojbjerg. And it must not be forgotten how overlooked well Dele Alli is currently playing when considering what impact Skipp and Hojbjerg are having.
Admittedly, some fans are not entirely convinced that using Skipp alongside Hojbjerg is the way to go when Spurs are strong favourites for certain games.
But there is no question that the pair have helped the defence considerably since being put together by Nuno.
And plenty of Spurs fans on social media feel that Skipp was one of their standout performers in the victory over Watford.

Sanchez and Dier look like different players under Nuno. Skipp was everywhere. PEH was dominant although his passing was awry. Kept going forward. Lacked a bit of craft and cleverness. And the guy who said Kane was non-existent must have been watching a different match #COYS
