Tottenham Hotspur fans generally appear to be backing Mauricio Pochettino’s reported decision to hand Harry Winks a start in the Champions League final.

Spurs take on Liverpool later this evening, and the Daily Mail suggest that Winks will be given a slot in midfield.


The 23-year-old has been out since April, but has won his race against fitness to return to Tottenham training.

Pochettino has now reportedly been impressed enough by the England intentional to feel he is ready to start.

And the Argentine boss intends to give Winks a chance in midfield later this evening.

Spurs fans are generally behind the decision, as they feel that they have missed Winks’ calming influence on the side.

Winks looks almost certain to partner Moussa Sissoko in midfield this evening, if he is given the nod.

Pochettino still has to decide whether he will be playing Harry Kane in the final or not too, as the Spurs striker is back fit and available.
