Jamie Carragher believes Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks has a very bright future ahead and could be the perfect replacement of Jordan Henderson in the England midfield.
Winks came back following a long injury spell and has featured in a number of games including the 4-2 defeat at the hands of Barcelona in the Champions League. Despite the loss, the Spurs midfielder caught the attention with his technical ability and his easiness on the ball.
With Henderson set to miss the crucial encounter against Spain, Southgate might opt to hand the midfielder a chance to show his talent in the middle of the park. The English gaffer earlier asked for more creativity in the middle of the pitch and would be very happy after seeing Winks’ rise to the big stage.
The former Liverpool defender said, “You would imagine Joe Gomez will come in at the back because of how well he has started the season for Liverpool.
“He has been outstanding at the back with Virgil van Dijk. I would expect him to slot in into a back four, where he has been playing for his club.
“In midfield, maybe Harry Winks. He played really well for Spurs against Barcelona in the Champions League, against similar type of players. Again, it won’t be easy, but I think in Seville on Monday night, we are going to have to do as well as we can to keep the ball against Spain. Winks is as good as anyone who can come in for Jordan Henderson in terms of technical ability.”
