Many Tottenham fans have slammed Harry Winks for his performance against Middlesbrough on Tuesday.
Antonio Conte’s side were hoping to build on their biggest Premier League victory of the campaign at Leeds, but Spurs slipped to an embarrassing exit to the Championship outfit, which ensured another year without a trophy.
Josh Coburn’s extra-time goal proved the difference as Tottenham followed up a win with a defeat for the sixth time already in 2022.
According to WhoScored, Winks was Spurs’ worst-rated starter on the day (6.08). The midfielder made just one key pass throughout the 120 minutes and failed to complete a single dribble or register a shot on target.
Furthermore, he didn’t win a single ground or aerial duel and was dribbled past five times, which was more than the entire Tottenham team combined.
It was a dreadful display all-round from Conte’s side, with Heung Min Son and Harry Kane amongst their worst performers.
But many of the Tottenham faithful were particularly angry with Winks, as you can see by the reaction on Twitter:
He should not ever wear a spurs shirt again. I don’t understand Conte keeps playing him. I know we’re a bit thin in midfield but come on!

Been saying this for years he’s the epitome of a soulless footballer.. his level is championship at best.

How he wasn't hooked for one of the younger midfielders on the bench was baffling from Conte. If he starts again for the club, it will highlight how far we have fallen

Harry winks has played 10 games for England and is on £70k a week. Is he the luckiest man on the planet? I’ve seen better players in non league and no exaggeration there are fans in the stand who are better than him.
