Harry Winks delivers two-word verdict following victory v Aston Villa

By Emma Sanders

Harry Winks claimed his side produced a “great result” against Aston Villa during the 2-0 victory in the third round of the FA Cup tie at White Hart Lane.

The 20-year-old was named in the starting XI for the seventh time this season as his side had to battle for the full 90 minutes to secure a victory.

Tottenham started off poorly and failed to produce any clear-cut chances in the first half so Mauricio Pochettino was forced to bring on Dele Alli after an hour.

Spurs eventually broke the deadlock in the 71st minute when Ben Davies netted his first goal for the club before Son Heung-Min doubled their lead.

Winks revealed he was already looking ahead to the next game in the FA Cup and he will be hoping to add another appearance to his tally, which is currently at 20 games in the 2016-17 campaign.

The youngster has been impressive for Tottenham this season and is regarded by many as one of the best academy stars at the club so it was no surprise to see him in the starting line-up against Villa.

Pochettino named a number of young players in the team but Josh Onomah and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou were both left on the bench, though they did come on as late substitutions.
