Tottenham fans tell Pochettino: Academy product should be playing every week

By Harry Sykes

Harry Winks was recalled to the Tottenham team for their 4-3 FA Cup fourth round triumph over Wycombe on Saturday – and fans took to Twitter to say he should be playing more often.

The 20-year-old midfielder has emerged as an increasingly significant member of Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team squad this season since making his Premier League debut in August but is still on the fringes of the regular starting XI.

Against Wycombe, Winks was handed his eighth start of the campaign, and 23rd appearance in all competitions, as Spurs made nine changes from the team that drew 2-2 against Manchester City in the Premier League the previous weekend.

Winks was partnered in central midfield by matchday skipper Eric Dier as first-choice duo Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama were rested from the starting XI.

Spurs were two goals down at half-time as League Two outfit scented what would have been a sensational giantkilling.

But Tottenham staved off embarrassment by mounting a second-half comeback as two goals from Son Heung-Min, a Dele Alli strike and Vincent Janssen penalty secured the win.

Fans were blown away by another mature display from Winks, who played the entire 90 minutes of the White Hart Lane clash.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Spurs’ priority is to challenge for the Premier League title and at least secure a top-four finish but manager Pochettino will want to make an impression in the FA Cup after a wretched Champions League campaign and early exit from the League Cup.

Tottenham’s win on Saturday means they will take their place in the fifth-round draw of the FA Cup.
