Harry Winks has slammed Tottenham Hotspur’s cruel fixture as the North London giants are scheduled to face three teams within a span of five days.
Spurs were supposed to host Manchester City on Sunday but it had to be postponed to Monday due to the delay in the setting up of their new stadium while the NFL game between Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars also added to the cause.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side now have to travel to London to face West Ham United in a midweek fixture in the Carabao Cup. Following the completion of this fixture Spurs set to take on Wolves at the Molineux stadium in the weekend summing up a difficult string of fixtures for them.
Winks said, “We have got three games in five days which is ridiculous really, in terms of the schedule.
“We have got to dig in, we have got a big squad, got players that can play two games in two days because we are a fit squad and a fit bunch of players.”
“I think it is more physically hard to prepare, as opposed to tactically and mentally
“We are in the same frame of mind and tactics we do all the time.
“Physically it is difficulty. Some of the lads who played today played 90 minutes and are going to have to be ready to play 48 hours later, which is not great and not ideal. It should still be a recovery day.
“Those are the fixtures we have got. We will have to deal with it and luckily enough we have got a squad big enough to be able to deal with this.”
