Harry Winks left fans on social media astounded after scoring an incredible 53-yard goal in Tottenham's 4-0 win over Ludogorets in Thursday's Europa League clash.

Carlos Vinicius gave Spurs the lead in the 16th minute and doubled his account just after the half-hour mark. But the moment of the match came in the 63rd minute when Winks floated a long range shot over the stranded Ludogorets keeper and straight into the net.

However, the midfielder admitted he was trying to pick out Gareth Bale rather than going for goal. "I'd love to sit here and say that I did, but I've got to be honest and say no," the England international told BT Sport. "I saw Gaz (Gareth Bale) run in. I'll take it at the end of the day. It has been a while [since I last scored] but I am happy with the way the team played."

Jose Mourinho jokingly claimed he wasn't happy with Winks' admission, stating: "He is too honest! I am not happy with him! With a goal like that you have to say you meant it, but a good kid. He is honest."

Whether he meant it or not, fans on Twitter were in awe of the Englishman's strike.
