Tottenham fans on Twitter gutted to see Winks’ latest blow

Tottenham fans on Twitter gutted to see Winks’ latest blow - Premier League

Without injuries, where would Tottenham be this season? The Lilywhites have been ravaged by setbacks and blows to key players at crucial times this season, yet Mauricio Pochettino has got his side into a Champions League semi-final. Ahead of that semi-final first-leg, at home to Ajax later tonight, Harry Winks has become the latest to suffer injury.

Winks had to undergo surgery on a groin injury yesterday and it could well have ended the young midfielder’s season. The 23-year-old has proven to be key to the way the Lilywhites play under Pochettino this season and the partnership he concocted with Moussa Sissoko over the Christmas period, born out of necessity as opposed to option, worked a treat.

Now, though, it looks like the two biggest games in Tottenham’s recent history will go by without Winks, even if Sissoko looks like he’ll be getting himself back from injury just in time for tonight’s clash. Without Winks next to him, Sissoko struggles somewhat as his lack of technical ability is made up for by the young Englishman just as equally as Sissoko’s dynamism makes up for Winks lack of explosiveness in transition and tonight’s midfield battle will be tough to win without the young academy man.

You can read the Lilywhites’ thoughts on Winks’ blow here:

The Lilywhites are desperate for Winks to make a speedy recovery, but at the same time, they don’t want to see him rush back and make things worse long-term.
