Tottenham fans predicting big things from midfielder Oliver Skipp

Oliver Skipp has spoken about his senior breakthrough at Tottenham last season – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded to predict big things from him in the future.

The 18-year-old made his breakthrough into the senior team during the last campaign and didn’t look out of place whenever called upon.

He played in 12 first-team games for Spurs and is a defensive midfielder that is the latest to be developed by senior manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The English enforcer will hope that he can follow in the path of Harry Winks, who went from academy prospect to a regular starter in the first team during recent years.

Skipp has discussed his breakthrough during the last year and how much he’s learned already from being around the senior set-up.

“It’s been a great experience for me this year, being in and around the first team,” he told the club’s official website.

“Whether it’s getting minutes on the pitch or just travelling with the squad, you can take so much on board and learn, just by being around such quality players.”

A selection of Spurs supporters on social media are pleased with Skipp’s progression and believe he could be a future star for them.

They are keen for the teenager to continue getting opportunities under Pochettino in the next campaign, but he will have to try nudge the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Eric Dier and Winks out the way for a starting position.

Here are some Spurs fans discussing their midfielder Skipp:
