Tottenham fans discuss Harry Winks cameo against Watford on Twitter

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the performance of Harry Winks after the midfielder came off the bench for the final 20 minutes of their Premier League win over Watford.

He actually completed 34 accurate passes in his cameo, according to Whoscored. No Watford player got close to matching that tally in over 100 minutes of action.

Meanwhile, he also completed two tackles, including one outrageous challenge on Josh King late on. He seemed to come from nowhere, before hooking the ball away superbly.

Plenty of Tottenham fans are happy to admit that they have made to eat their words about Winks. And they are extremely excited to see Conte use Skipp and Winks together in the future.

With that in mind, here is how some of the Tottenham fans reacted to Winks’ performance…
