Tottenham youngster Oliver Skipp spoke to reporters after his side's hard fought win over Leicester City on Sunday, and offered high words of praise for team-mates Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko, suggesting that the duo are fantastic to play alongside, as quoted by the club's official website.

Skipp, 18, has really impressed for Spurs this season, when he has been given a chance by Mauricio Pochettino, an he has made 10 senior appearances in all competitions thus far.


Mousa Dembele's exit last month has opened up a space in central midfield, and the English teenager will surely be keen to push on, and grab his opportunity with both hands.

Skipp was humble when speaking to reporters after Sunday's win over the Foxes, however, and suggested that his job is made a whole lot easier by playing with quality players like Winks and Sissoko, as quoted by the club's official website:

“It was really good and it’s fantastic to play alongside players like that [Winks and Sissoko]. They make the job much easier and they’re obviously in great form at the moment so it was nice to play in there with them."

Tottenham are currently right in the mix in the race for the Premier League title, and if everyone is fit, it is unlikely that Skipp will start very often between now and the end of the season.

He just needs to bide his time, however, and be patient, because it is quite clear that he has the talent to go on and become a real star in the game.
