“I feel 100 per cent”- Tottenham Hotspur star’s fitness update a silver lining from Newcastle United loss

Tottenham Hotspur Oliver Skipp says he feels “100 per cent” fit after Newcastle United loss

Oliver Skipp missed the start of the season for Tottenham Hotspur due to picking up a foot injury in a pre-season training session.

He was back on the bench towards the start of September but it wasn’t until our game against Newcastle United that he was handed his first start of the season.

Before this, he came on as a last-minute substitute in the last three of our league games and played 15 minutes in the 3-1 north London derby loss to Arsenal at the Emirates.

Skipp started in a midfield three for Tottenham against the Toons along with Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur in a 3-5-2 formation. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg missed out and the Denmark international’s absence was felt.

Spurs succumbed to a 2-1 loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in what was a demoralising display at N17. Skipp, however, played more than 15 minutes for the first time this season.

He was hooked in the 66th minute for Lucas Moura as manager Antonio Conte went all out for the equaliser – one which never came. Speaking after the game, the former Norwich City midfielder told SpursPlay (h/t Football.London):

“I feel 100 per cent. Training hard and obviously that rhythm will start to come with the more training time and game time I get.”

“I need to keep pushing and making sure when I do get those opportunities that I can take them, perform better and better each time.”

Be it a lack of options or Conte’s trust in Skipp, fans would hope that the Englishman comes of age in the near future and becomes a truly world-class midfield option to have.

Perhaps he is on the gaffer’s good books, considering he wasn’t loaned out while Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, and Harry Winks were.
