Tottenham created history on the night it mattered the most. Sharing the top spot in Group H alongside Real Madrid prior to the game, a lot was said and done about the fixture. The obvious talk of the town as Harry Kane who had missed Tottenham’s previous two fixtures and incidentally, Tottenham lost both of them; a 3-2 defeat against West Ham in the Carabao Cup and a 1-0 defeat at hands of Manchester United in the Premier League.

Besides, with the fixture being scheduled at Wembley, many expected it to be an easy win for Madrid given that we have struggled to set a footing at the grand venue. The tables, however, were turned as we went on to defy all odds and to become the first English team in the 21st century to beat Real Madrid in a Champions League group stage game.

Tottenham have been struggling with injuries a lot this season but as they say; one man’s loss is another man’s gain, Winks has reaped a lot because of this. The youngster has become a regular face for Pochettino and in what was one of the biggest nights in his footballing career, he didn’t disappoint a bit. The likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Kieran Trippier stole the show with an amazing display and at the same time, Winks did his job like a silent knight.

Up against the likes of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, Winks was able to neutralise the threat and grew strong with every passing minute of the game. What a night for the youngster and what a performance. Pochettino is set to face a major headache as soon as both Wanyama and Dembele get fit for regular first-team action.

Tottenham fans, on their part, were left impressed with Winks’ performance and this is how they reacted:
