Jose Mourinho has to bring back Harry Winks against Everton in response to the defeat of Sheffield United
Harry Winks should be back in Spurs’ starting lineup to visit Everton as part of Jose Mourinho’s reaction to the defeat of Sheffield United … they have lost control since being dropped after shining against Manchester United
- Harry Winks have not started for Spurs in their last two Premier League games
- The English midfielder helped Tottenham draw 1-1 with Manchester United
- His absence was noticeable on Thursday in the 3-1 setback at Sheffield United
- Jose Mourinho can use his team by using Winks against Everton on Monday
You could imagine that Harry Winks is back in the starting line-up for Tottenham against Everton on Monday.
Struggling to get a grip on midfield during Thursday night’s demoralizing loss to Sheffield United, as Spurs could have done with the England international’s capabilities.
Without any rhythm in midfield, Winks certainly stood out due to his absence.

There is no suggestion that the cultivated midfielder has fallen out of favor with manager Jose Mourinho – although he has only started one of the club’s three Project Restart games so far.
As games arrive thick and fast, Mourinho knows he has to use his squad. But the absence of Winks in the previous two games, especially in the defeat at Bramall Lane, has resulted in a lack of control in Tottenham’s engine room.
West Ham went from toe to toe with Tottenham until Tomas Soucek’s controversial own goal put Mourinho’s men in charge.

The less said about the loss in Sheffield, the better.
The game he played – against Manchester United in form – Winks was one of Spurs’s best players on the night.
Winks’ ability to dictate the pace of football matches will certainly come to Mourinho’s mind as he plots his squad selection for the clash against Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
What is certain, the Portuguese boss must do something good about his injustice against the Blades.
Winks is likely part of Mourinho’s response.
