Oliver’s a future Spurs skipper


FEW at Tottenham will begrudge Oliver Skipp a change of luck. His year on loan at Norwich in 2020-21 was a huge success. He won the Championsh­ip and played every game until breaking a metatarsal in the penultimat­e game of the season, the first in a maddening sequence of injuries. Almost two years on, Skipp has benefited from the misfortune of others. Recalled because Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma were injured, his mature midfield displays, boundless energy and a key goal against Chelsea served to remind why there was great anticipati­on for his return from Norwich and why some still consider him a future Spurs captain.
