Spurs success and fine performance at this start of the season has cost some players their place in the team.
If you want to win games and trophies, then you will have to field your best players, and that is exactly what Jose Mourinho is currently doing.
When the Portuguese manager was made Tottenham manager, he inherited one of the most talented squads in Europe and a team that had reached the final of the Champions League.
The aftermath of that achievement wasn’t pleasing and it cost Mauricio Pochettino his job.
As Mourinho came in, he had to find the players that he can rely on to get the job done for him.
The club also backed him heavily in the last transfer window to sign some quality players for his squad.
The likes of Gareth Bale and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg were among the big talents to be signed by the club.
One player that has been affected by the new arrivals is Harry Winks.
The midfielder had been a mainstay in the Tottenham side since he broke into the first team, however, he is now struggling for game time.
Several reports have said that he may ask to leave the club and some even suggested that Spurs are prepared to allow him to leave in the next transfer window (Football365).
To me, letting Winks go would be a big mistake because it takes a big team of top players to win titles.
Spurs has to have enough players to replace those that are the first choice in the event of injury or suspension.
If we allow Winks to go now, we’d likely regret such a decision in the near future, because an injury to one midfielder might change the course of our season.
