100 touches, seven key passes - Alex Pritchard dazzles for Brentford against Blackpool

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

Tottenham youngster Alex Pritchard produced a superb display for Brentford against Blackpool on Tuesday.

Brentford's superb season continued on Tuesday night, hammering Blackpool 4-0 at Griffin Park to take them to just one point outside the play-off places.

A hat-trick from Arsenal loanee Jon Toral and a goal from Andre Gray condemned bottom club Blackpool to yet another defeat.

The Bees laid siege to the Tangerines goal, racking up 42 shots in 90 minutes in a remarkable attacking display - spearheaded by Tottenham loanee Alex Pritchard.

Pritchard, 21, is on a season-long loan with the Bees and, having hit six goals in 29 games, he's impressing hugely; and continued his fine form against Blackpool.

Here are some stats from Pritchard's performance against Blackpool...

Pritchard was virtually unplayable for Brentford, and was instrumental throughout. With 60 of his 66 passes finding team mates, he managed to tally a pass completion percentage of 91%, which helped Brentford to 74% of possession.

With 100 touches, Pritchard was the hub of the Brentford attack, and even made seven key passes and two completed dribbles.

Pritchard also had 11 of Brenford's 42 shots on goal and, whilst he didn't score, his eye for goal makes him such a dangerous player for Mark Warburton's men.

Mauricio Pochettino's increasing reliance on young players such as Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Harry Kane means that Pritchard could well be in the first team plans at White Hart Lane next season - especially if he continues to produce performances like the one against Blackpool.
