Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter in jubilant fashion after their top-four chances, and slim title hopes, were given a humongous boost against Fulham, after Harry Winks’ 93rd-minute effort ensured that Spurs would take all three points back to north London with them.
The academy graduate stepped up in the absence of another Harry from the academy in Harry Kane to push Mauricio Pochettino’s injury-stricken Spurs side over the line against the Cottagers, in a game where they really didn’t have it all their own way.
Claudio Ranieri’s men took the lead through a Fernando Llorente own goal, before they were pegged back by Dele Alli’s header – his fourth of the season.
His withdrawal thanks to a hamstring injury not long after, however, somehow worsened their injury crisis – Spurs are now without Kane, Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko, and lost Heung-min Son to international duty having sold Mousa Dembele.
For now, however, Spurs supporters have reason to be positive after the 22-year-old’s last-gasp winner…

Winks deserved that goal. As always, worked his socks off. #COYS

Absolute madness to see Harry Winks receiving some criticism in recent weeks, hopefully that goal shuts up all of the doubters.
A young footballer who always looks to play the forward-pass along with being #OneOfOurOwn.

A much better 2nd half from Tottenham as they stepped things up, still not the best performance I have seen this season but a well earned 3 points to stay in the pack,
Dele & Winks with the goals, M.O.M the brilliant Harry Winks. Coys. pic.twitter.com/QwMPkDpyzc
