Harry Winks - He's one of our own
Harry Winks was only on the field for 16 minutes yet brought a piece of that missing intensity to the game and completed more dribbles, three, than any other player did during the whole game!
It is very much one Mauricio Pochettino relies on and usually come on for Mousa Dembele. That alone tells you how highly regarded he is, Dembele is a standout midfielder for most experts and was rated one of the top midfield players in Europe last season.
This time he came on for the ineffectual Son Heung-min who needed to much time when he was in scoring positions, which demonstrates the difference between a specialist striker and one standing in for the role.
We were linked with 25-year-old Italian striker Manolo Gabbiadini in the summer and his first time shot when he pulled his groin was impressive. It was instant, it had power, was curling and wasn't far wide. That one shot signified he is a goalscorer if anyone was in any doubt. I certainly wouldn't mind him as a striker to help out Harry Kane.
