Harry Winks: “I feel like I’m 100% now”

Harry Winks played the full 90 minutes in the 1-0 win against Barnsley on Tuesday. It was his first start since last season.

Winks really broke through into the first team last season making 21 appearances for Spurs. His season was ended due to an ankle injury suffered in April against Burnley and he has experienced continued issues during pre-season.

I feel like I’m 100 per cent now,” Winks said after the game.

“It was a perfect opportunity to go out there and really put everything behind me and just move on, and start the season from now.

“It’s difficult when you’re playing at 70 per cent in training and you know you’re really giving it everything you can but there’s a little bit of pain here and there, which is frustrating. But it’s football.

“Luckily enough I can say, touch wood, that everything’s ok now and it’s really feeling good and I’m feeling confident and strong.”

His return to fitness comes at a good time for him and Spurs. With Wanyama out and Dembele struggling with a niggling injury, Winks could well find he enjoys more game time in the coming weeks – especially in October when we face Real Madrid twice, West Ham in the League Cup plus our Premier League fixtures against Liverpool and Manchester United.
