Tottenham Starting Midfield

The middle of the park has been a real problem for Tottenham most of the year. The gap between the defense and the offense has been significant and teams have consistently taken advantage of that space to play between Spurs lines. Fortunately, Wolfsberger is only so capable of doing that, then again, if not for a couple Hugo saves, things could be very different going into Wednesday.

While not back by popular demand but rather availability we get another does Sissoko and Winks

Moussa Sissko – Holding Midfield

Moussa Sissoko was a cog in the Tottenham midfield after Spurs started to move on from Mousa Dembele and Spurs still have not fully recovered. While Sissoko can do a job and can cover a lot of ground, his overall quality is not that of a top four midfielder, but Spurs and Mourinho have limited options, particularly when Pierre Højbjerg clearly needs the rest. Sissoko seems a step slower this season, but then again so does everyone else as they seem to think and not play.

Harry Winks – Holding Midfield

Speaking of being a step slow this season, Harry Winks is likely to once again get the call to cover the middle of the park with Sissoko. Winks can either be all over it and ultra aggressive and forward thinking, or totally off the pace, passive and sideways. Like Sissoko, Winks is out there because the choices are kind of limited with injuries still impacting the squad.

We are not exactly thrilled about the Winks Sissoko pairing as you can likely tell but you can only run Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre Højbjerg out there so many times.
