Harry Winks, under-appreciated? Maybe, but certainly not by the people that matter.
Just over 58,000 people packed into the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the clash against Wolves, but none prouder than Winks, who captained the club he joined as a five-year-old for the first time.
It seems silly now, but there was a semblance of doubt over Winks' future when Jose Mourinho was appointed.

Winks' (right) vision and ability to retain possession is invaluable for manager Jose Mourinho
Five months on, suffice to say those doubts have been dispelled; his emergence as one of Mourinho's key foot soldiers solidified by the manager's decision to adorn him with the armband in injured duo Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane's absence.
Winks' influence on the Mourinho era is growing by the week, an emerging constant in what's been a turbulent few weeks for Spurs.
Not that it bothers him, but Winks isn't one who receives the adulation he necessarily deserves. Players of his type rarely do.
