Winks has excelled in the absence of Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele this season, and made his international debut, alongside fellow midfielder Henderson, as England beat Lithuania 1-0 at the start of this month.
And though Henderson caught the eye as he assisted Mohamed Salah's goal for Liverpool, his overall performance was nothing compared to that of Tottenham's Winks, at least in the eyes of Roberts.
The former Spurs and England left-back tweeted on Sunday:

Tottenham raced into a two-goal lead against their rivals for a Champions League place, courtesy of strikes from Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
Salah halved Liverpool's deficit midway through the first half, but further goals from Dele Alli on the stroke of half-time and Kane shortly after the restart secured an emphatic victory for Mauricio Pochettino's team, who moved level on points with second-placed Manchester United.
Is Winks already better than Henderson?
