Tottenham fans react to Oliver Skipp display in Newcastle win

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Oliver Skipp after the midfielder’s performance in their 3-2 win against Newcastle United on Sunday.

Spurs produced an impressive performance to come from behind to beat the Magpies at St James’ Park. In fact, they were 1-0 down inside two minutes.

But goals from Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min saw Tottenham turn the game around on a day somewhat overshadowed by the events that saw a fan taken ill during the first-half.

A number of Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad shone in the victory. And plenty of fans took to social media to suggest that Skipp may have been the best of the lot.

The 21-year-old has been an outstanding performer throughout the campaign. He has formed a very good partnership with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

And he stepped up once again against Newcastle. He won three tackles. Meanwhile, he barely misplaced a pass during the contest.

Allan Saint-Maximin caused problems for Tottenham. No player completed more dribbles than the Frenchman.

But the performances of Skipp and Hojbjerg helped ensure that Spurs were not punished after conceding that early goal.

For Skipp, this season may evoke feelings of deja vu. Of course, he spent last season picking up the man of the match awards on a regular basis while on loan with Norwich.

And it seems that the Tottenham fans are being given reason to be just as impressed as the Canaries supporters were.
