Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp has heaped huge praise on Tottenham youngster Harry Winks for his recent performances for the club.
The 21-year-old has started the last five matches in all competitions for Spurs and he has been one of the most consistent performers for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
The midfielder produced a disciplined display against back-to-back Champions League winner Real Madrid last week in the 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu.
Winks also put on a commanding performance against rivals Liverpool in the 4-1 victory on Sunday afternoon at Wembley Stadium.
Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, former Spurs man Redknapp is convinced that the youngster will benefit from playing under Pochettino alongside other talented players at the North London club.
“What a week for Harry Winks,” he wrote.
“After an assured display at the Bernabeu, Winks shone in midfield for Tottenham against Liverpool at Wembley.
“Tottenham is the best place for young English players to develop. Winks is learning from one of the best managers in Mauricio Pochettino and training with England’s best in Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
“If Winks carries on like this, he can go right to the top.”
The midfielder has enjoyed a fine start to the new campaign after earning his first ever England international cap in a World Cup qualifier against Lithuania earlier this month.
With the likes of Victor Wanyama and Moussa Dembele currently out of action through injury, Pochettino has shown great faith in Winks and he has certainly not let his manager down.
The midfielder could potentially feature in the upcoming Carabao Cup match against bitter rivals West Ham United on Wednesday evening at Wembley Stadium.
