Tottenham fans want Pochettino to start in-form youngster against Gent

By Will Butcher

Tottenham fans on Twitter want to see Harry Winks continue his fine form by starting against Gent in Thursday night’s Europa League clash.

Winks, 20, has sparkled in a Tottenham shirt recently, proving to be one of Spurs’ outstanding players in their 3-0 win over London rivals Fulham on Sunday in the FA Cup.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for his side to overturn a first-leg deficit against Belgian side Gent that saw them lose 1-0 in Europe last week.

The Argentine boss could include midfielder Winks in looking to secure a safe passage into the Europa League’s Round of 16, before facing Stoke at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Tottenham fans are desperate to see their academy product start his third game in the space of a week, as he continues to shine with his box-to-box style in the middle of the park.

Spurs’ number 29 has been in fine form for the north London outfit since breaking into Pochettino’s first-team plans this season.

Showing a maturity, creativity and determination in midfield, Winks was handed a new contract last week which will keep him at his boyhood club until 2022.

Even defender Jan Vertonghen has noticed Winks’ impressive recent form, claiming that Winks can become Spurs new Harry Kane.
