Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Winks starting v Burnley
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham youngster Harry Winks has been handed a rare start against Burnley on Saturday – and the club’s supporters were delighted on Twitter that he has been given the opportunity.
The 21-year-old has developed into an important first team player this season, but has been resigned to substitute appearances for the most-part.
However, the academy graduate has been given the chance to impress from the start in the Premier League clash against the Clarets.
Mauricio Pochettino has made three changes to his side as Winks, Kieran Trippier and Vincent Janssen come into the starting line-up.
Meanwhile, Heung-Min Son, Kyle Walker and Mouse Dembele have dropped out of the starting XI.
