    He has been trusted in some big games by kids now and has played in every game this season

    Today was by far and way his best performance yet

    Winks is a different type of player that can play the same position. Sometimes, we might need more strength/pace, so someone with the physical attributes of Dembele to cover his position. And sometimes, like tonight, we'll need them both!

    He played well tonight. His touch isnt always convincing. His passing isn't always there. But he has technique, spirit, and pushes himself to succeed. I think he's playing better this season and deserves his chances. However, he was still useless last season & I still don't think he was worth £30m at the time that we signed him.

    For me winks now starts tha games in that position. He showed the strength and pace you meant tonight, when he lost it and Ronalo had the shot that hugo tipped Over

    Maybe, but there will be different games in the Premier League where the midfield is a lot more physical than Real Madrid's and sometimes, it is necessary to fight fire with fire. I think that's part of what made the Wanyama/Dembele partnership so good last season -- so it's good for us to have the option of replicating that if we need to (with say, Dier and Sissoko).

    Well done, Moussa - you're starting to show how you can be important to a team as a team player. Not only a "star" at a relegation battler. Keep'em coming!

    In this type of games sometimes the psychological edge is perhaps more important. Sissoko and aurier were not only not intimidated, but played with a callousness against more expensive players and came out looking better.

    You can that in the 2nd half the real Madrid defence were dreading being made out and kept dropping back to avoid getting beaten 1:1. It's an ego thing and Sissoko and aurier finished the game with healthier self esteem and deservingly so.

    What is this spirit? Resilience? Or just years of playing street football and having to fend for yourself since young?

    I would definitely have him in midfield against the better opponents. Nullifying the other teams' attacks and getting us forward with pace on the break. That's a pretty unique skill set.

    And the resulting cross for Eriksen was pretty sweet. If Eriksen hadn't checked his run it would have been a tap in.

    I am enjoying watching Sissoko improve, and this season he has been improving steadily. Last night he put in a brilliant, disciplined performance, if. He can put in a shift like that each week he will be a solid player for us.

    It just goes to show it can take a while for a player to settle in, trust in Poch

    He was probably trying to take the ball down to his feet ;)

    Lamela was always a very skillful player.

    And the price was fair IMO for a player who had the season he had previous

    It just took him time to come out fk his shell over here

    If we ever get everyone back fit and available (Wanyama, Dele, Dembele and even Lamela) do you think he has done enough that Poch would still consider him for some games? Or is he still bottom of the list?

    Solid game. He and Aurier work very well together.
