He’s really special isn’t he ? The way he glides across the pitch with the ball and battles for everything, outstanding midfielder and one of our own!!! You can’t buy that sort of class and fight for the shirt.
You could see the Man City players had a level of respect for him today. They rarely tried to press him hard because his ability to skip past you, wiggle away or find a pass for a one two is so good. He’s an absolutely top class midfield player always said it. Convinced he’ll become one of the best in the world
Class act. As much as I want us to bolster in midfield next season, I can’t see anyone dislodging Winks. He’s the perfect modern day midfielder; can press high, maintain possession, and has the dynamism to break lines with his acceleration, agility and skill.
Winks reminds me of a young Modric. Delightful little player and worth every bit of hype he gets. Reason why he's not seen for the player he is, is because he came from our academy and not with a £50+ Million price tag from another club.
All we need is these two and another quality CM player and we are sorted for next season as long as they can carry their form from this season into next. I can see an incredible partnership between these two growing better and better every game.
Winks has the ability to be our new Modric. Games like this show that. Just needs to own more games and maybe get a little stronger. Sissoko sitting deeper definitely helps, but also bring able to carry the ball forward and move it on cos it means opposition can't just wait for him to give to Winks. This is definitely creating more space in midfield for us
