Tottenham loan watch: Defender’s first start; Pritchard enjoys victory

We take a look at Tottenham Hotspur's current loan players and how they got on in their most recent outings.

Tottenham Hotspur secured a fine victory against Sunderland on Saturday, when Christian Eriksen’s late goal ensured a 2-1 victory.

The result meant Tottenham temporarily climbed ahead of Arsenal and into a European qualifying spot, but while the first-team were doing that, a number of other players were looking to impress elsewhere.

Here we take a look at some of Tottenham’s loan stars and how they did at the weekend:

Alex Pritchard – Brentford

Alex Pritchard is currently on loan at Championship side Brentford and he played his part in the club’s 1-0 win away to Brighton on Saturday.

Pritchard started the match and had a fine chance to extend the visitors’ lead only to see his effort saved by Blackpool stopper David Stockdale.

He was substituted with just a minute of normal-time remaining.

Grant Hall – Blackpool

Tottenham defender Grant Hall made his first start for new loan club Blackpool on Saturday when they took on Wolves.

Hall had come on as an early substitute in the last league match when Darren O’Dea was taken off, but this time saw the reverse, with Hall replaced late on by his fellow defender.

When Hall left the field the score was 0-0 but by the end of the match Wolves had snatched two quick-fire goals.

Tom Carroll – Swansea City

Tom Carroll had a match to forget for loan club Swansea City, who were humbled 5-0 by current league leaders Chelsea at the weekend.

Carroll played the entire match but he could not prevent the Blues from running riot, with Diego Costa and Oscar both scoring braces while Andre Schurrle also got in on the action.

Tomislav Golmet – Bari

Tottenham’s 19-year-old midfielder Tomislav Golmet spent Bari’s latest match on the bench.

His side ultimately drew 0-0 with Virtus Entella but he did not add to the 164 minutes of first-team football he has managed since his move.
