    Hi guys,

    Hope you're all well.

    We've done a piece looking at Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks to see who should start.

    Winks vs Sissoko

    Feedback is welcome.

    Cheers,

    Sam

    Thinking of the RM and other top EPL games, Sissoko is stronger and probably faster than Winks. However, I think Winks gets the ball forward quicker than Sissoko and that's important if you are playing a counter-attacking game. It does depend on who Poch will have available at DM.

    I'd go with Sissoko. He'll be looking to press on after that bundled goal, I'd give him the start and if it doesn't work out bring Winks on around the hour mark. Sossage has never done well coming off the bench, Winks has shown he can apparently just switch match fitness on when he feels like it.

    Different players with very different styles it’s like comparing Dier & Wanyama. All bring something different to the team and add to our style in different ways.

    If we have Wanyama in CM then Winks should start to move the ball quickly in tight spaces, if we haven’t got Wanyama then Sissoko should play as he adds a physical presence that’s needed in the middle of the park.

    Not even a question for me, Winks everytime. We need someone in the middle with the ability to pick a pass, find that gap, bring calm to the midfield. Sissoko for all his hard work doesn't possess those qualities.

    It's not even a question. Winks will become so great over the course of the next months.

    Winks.
    Sissoko is only in contention atm because Victor and Dembele are injured. Otherwise he'd be warming the bench, if even that.

    If Dembele is fit, Dembele. If not, Winks. And it isn't close.

    Harry Winks makes everything look so effortless and could truly develop into a quality player. Very different players but if Sissoko did some of the touches, passing and evasion that Winks does people would be making a much bigger deal out of it.

    Winks every time!

    We will almost certainly line up with 2 more defensive CM's if they are fit.

    In the two games he featured for us Vic looked nowhere near match fit and was a liability against Chelsea, without any matches to gauge him I would not want him in CM against RM, it's not like they overpower teams in CM. Moussa and Vic could easily get run ragged by Modric, Cruz and Isco. (wouldn't want Sissoko in there either)

    Different players completely.

    Winks though on every level. Apart from In Goal, Sissoko is marginally the better keeper.
