Son faces between six to 12 weeks out of action after undergoing surgery on his fractured arm - an injury he suffered in Spurs' 3-2 win against Aston Villa on Sunday - meaning the north London club are without an out and out goalscorer for the decisive part of the campaign that starts with a Champions League last-16 first-leg match against RB Leipzig on Wednesday night.


“It’s a massive blow for us. He’s a top player and in such good form at the moment, especially coming off the back of the weekend,” Winks said.


Gary Neville and Roy Keane want Man Utd to let Paul Pogba go.


“He brings more than just his goals to the team, his work-rate, energy and experience. A massive loss for us, but we’ve got good enough players who can fill in and hopefully score us goals.”


Winks added: “It is important that we don’t dwell on it (the fact Harry Kane and Son are injured) because it is not going to benefit us.


“We have had an up-and-down kind of season, at times things have gone against us, it’s been like this for the last few years and we have always found ways to get results.


“I am sure tomorrow will be no different. The mentality of the squad is to always work and and do as well as we can to win and tomorrow will be no different.”
