Striker Harry naturally grabbed the headlines after his first hat-trick in the Champions League spearheaded a fine 3-0 victory against the team from Nicosia, Cyprus.

However, young midfielder Harry Winks shone as well as we made it two wins in two in Group H.

Tenacious as ever, 'Winksy' covered every blade of grass at the GSP Stadium, winning his tackles, confident on the ball, accurate passing and a willingness to drive forward all on display.

His performance was further proof that he's getting back to full fitness after a nasty ankle injury in April curtailed what had been a breakthrough 2016-17 season.

"Harry was brilliant, breaking up play, passing, running with the ball," said Harry. "It's great for his confidence and a great stage to play on in the Champions League.

"He's just got to keep on doing what he's doing. He had a tough injury but that's part of the game and mentally, you have to come back from that. He's worked hard and when he gets his chance he has to be ready. He certainly showed that against APOEL.
