The only thing with him is maybe they feel like he will be ready at 23 physically to be able to defend as a starter. Otherwise why not blood him more often. Games like Southampton at home or Burnley this weekend are perfect games to get minutes into KWP and Skipp. Who knows maybe even the next Robbie Keane on the bench against Burnley? Would be no worse than having Llorente on it
You've certainly got some scouts earning their crust in that age group. We used to pick out the biggest kids and hope they develop technically. You've managed to pick players capable of both right through the age groups.
Skipp looks like he is a very similar player to Winks but with a bit more of a physical presence. Wouldnt surprise me if we play him as the 1 in a 4-1-4-1 quite a bit now.
Son - Eriksen - Dele - Lucas
Winks & Sissoko to play as a midfield pairing quite a bit too as they seem to have built up a pretty good combination in a 4-2-3-1 formation. They're the polar opposite central midfielder which is why it works.
