Tottenham midfielder starred in midweek win.
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks had a difficult start to the year as he battled back from injury and struggled for form.
His outstanding performance in the Champions League this week against PSV Eindhoven was proof he is back to his best.
With Tottenham needing a win, Winks took up the responsibility of driving his team forward and pushing for three points.
Winks made seven key passes in one match, a career high from the Tottenham midfielder.
It was the most of any player in the Tottenham team and a figure even Christian Eriksen has struggled to reach during his time at the club.
Winks was outstanding as a creative force from midfield. He did not take a single shot himself, instead focusing on feeding his teammates.
He had 104 touches and completed 89 per cent of his passes, a higher completion rate than any Tottenham player on Tuesday night at Wembley.
Defensively he was on his game too, making four tackles, more than the rest of Tottenham’s midfield and attack including substitutes managed combined.
England needed a fit Harry Winks like this at the World Cup. His incisive passing could have helped the Three Lions get past Croatia.
Tottenham are lucky to have him and if he can stay injury free and continue to raise his game then the sky is the limit.
