Onomah and N'Koudou should look towards Winks

Under Pochettino to date:
2017 62 points (2nd) GF57 GA21 GD36 
2016 55 points (2nd) GF51 GA24 GD26 
2015 50 points (7th)  GF46 GA42 GD4
Tottenham have won more points in 2017 than any other Premier League team, 26 (Won 8 Drawn 2 Lost 1).

That was maintained on Saturday when we beat Burnley at Turf Moor 2-0 with goals from Eric Dier, his first of the season and Son Heung-min, his fifteenth of the season, but it came at a cost.

A broken ankle to Harry Winks as he made a challenge that has ended what has been a wonderful season for him. He started against Burnley after being brought on game after game by Pochettino as he placed faith in him and developed him.

It is that faith, that trust, that Josh Onomah and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou have not developed. Why is that? Why is Winks getting the opportunities that those two are not? Is it because he is simply a better footballer? If it is then you have to ask why, what makes him better?

Onomah and N'Koudou shouldn't be begrudging Winks all the opportunities he has had, and I'm not suggesting they are, but should be looking at him and asking themselves, what is he doing that I am not doing, why is he impressing when I am not?

Moussa Sissoko should have been looking at players around him and asking the same questions before putting the answers into practice. Would you say he has done that because I certainly wouldn't.

Mindset is what makes you succeed, have all our fringe players got the right mindset? They have yet t prove to me, or more importantly Mauricio Pochettino that they have. If they had then Pochettino would be playing them.

Winners don't make excuses.
