Jamie Redknapp has praised Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Oliver Skipp for his recent performances

In conversation with Sky Sports  (h/t Football.London), Former Tottenham Hostpur player Jamie Redknapp has praised academy graduate Oliver Skipp following an impressive victory against Newcastle United.

The 21-year-old midfielder has impressed ever since the start of the season and has played a prominent role under the new manager Nuno Espirito Santo. Skipp has been a dependable asset for the club early in the season and his robustness in the middle of the park has helped the Lilywhites a great deal already.

The English professional footballer played for Norwich City F.C in the Championship last season and the regular game time with the Canaries seems to have worked in favour of the young midfielder. Oliver played 47 matches in his time at Norwich across all competitions during which he scored 1 goal and provided 2 assists.

The Sky Sports pundit spoke about the 21-year-old English midfielder and how he has been absolutely wonderful in the middle of the pitch for Tottenham this season:

“I think the manager took a lot stick against Arsenal, the balance in the midfield was wrong, tactically he got it wrong, I think bringing in Skipp has made a difference. What he does so well is he keeps it simple, he passes it well and he keeps the space where he can see if there’s a breakdown… He went to Norwich a boy on loan, did so well, now you can see he’s come back as a man, he looks the part in there.”

Nuno has had a rocky start to life with the Lilywhites so far but has managed to get the North London club on track in their last few matches. Skipp has been an essential part of his team and has already featured in 11 competitive matches for Spurs this season.
