Oliver Skipp delighted to be part of Spurs win over Leicester

Oliver Skipp was delighted to feature for Tottenham in victory over Leicester City.

Reflecting on his 10th senior appearance, the 18-year-old felt it was beneficial for him to join the in-form pairing of Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko in the heart of our midfield.

“It was really good and it's fantastic to play alongside players like that," he told the Spurs website.

“They make the job much easier and they're obviously in great form at the moment so it was nice to play in there with them. Obviously it's always nice to earn a start and I can only thank the gaffer for trusting me.

"It's fantastic for me to be in and around the team this season – even when I don't play, just being around it means I can learn and pick up game experience."
