Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has been speaking on the latest episode of the Gold & Guest talk Tottenham podcast to discuss all things relating to the north London club. 

There have been some major changes at the N17 side over the course of the last week, with Antonio Conte being appointed as their new manager, replacing Nuno Espirito Santo.

Will Skipp become an England regular in the future?





Spurs have already played two games under the Italian manager, with a victory coming in the Europa Conference League and a draw against Everton in the Premier League.

One player who has featured in both games is Oliver Skipp, who started on each occasion under the 52-year-old, including all 90 minutes of Sunday’s clash at Goodison Park (via Transfermarkt).

Speaking about the 21-year-old midfielder, Gold had the following to say on the initial impression Skipp has made on the new Spurs coach.

“He’s a big Oliver Skipp fan already, Antonio Conte. This is what I’m told.

“He’s very much come in like, ‘yeah, you’ll do for me, I like you, I like you a lot’. That’s what I get told from a few people behind the scenes as well.”

TIF Thoughts on Skipp’s future…

The 21-year-old impressed massively during his loan spell with Norwich City last season, in which he played all but their final game in their Championship-winning season (via Transfermarkt).

And since returning from the loan spell with the Canaries, Skipp has played a prominent role in the Spurs midfield, having featured in all 11 of their Premier League games this term.

There have even been rumours of the youngster being rewarded with an improved contract, and given he has started in both of Conte’s two games, we are intrigued to see what he can achieve under the new boss.
