Tottenham fans on Twitter agree with Parlour’s Winks assessment

To a lot of Tottenham fans, Harry Winks is a perfect example of what the club are about. The young midfielder came through the club’s academy and has shown plenty of times that he can handle the pressure on the big stage. However, ex-Arsenal man and pundit Ray parlour has claimed that he wants to see Winks be braver with the ball and that it’s not all about possession stats.

Whilst the Lilywhites may not like the mouth that the words came from, they can’t deny that the words themselves make a lot of sense. Winks is a midfielder who very rarely turns the ball over to the opposition, he has a neat passing range and more often than not he’s the key man in Tottenham’s double-pivot, operating next to a ball winner such as Eric Dier or Victor Wanyama.

The news has been confirmed that Winks will be starting tonight as England face Spain in the UEFA Nations league and they’ll be keen to avenge their defeat over the Spanish that he suffered back in September at Wembley, however, it won’t be easy. Gareth Southgate’s young three lions will be in for a rest test and it will be up to the likes of Harry Winks to step up and prove people like Ray Parlour wrong as he aims to make himself one of the first names on Southgate’s team sheet for coming England fixtures.
