#1 Supporter of Mason's Mates
I would hope that Winks being an unused substitute against Rennes means that Nuno has learned his lesson on him, but I’ve thought that many times before with different managers and they never learn. If you are going to put out a wonky team with an extra midfielder, at least make it a midfielder who has quality (however limited) like Gio or Ndombele. Winks doesn’t offer the team anything other than the most basic set of safety first passes.
My only concern with this is that if you have no plan to start Winks tomorrow then why play an already injured Skipp and risk an injury to PEH against Rennes? What is Nuno's plan if one of them get injured in that game?
I will happy if the reason Winks wasn't played is because he is being frozen out of the team but risking injuries to our decent MFers when we are thin already is a puzzling, if not terrible, decision by Nuno.
