Spurs fans can't contain excitement on Twitter as Pritchard, Alli shine again

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

Tottenham Hotspur supporters are hoping for a brighter future.

Alex Pritchard and Dele Alli were on the scoresheet once again on Saturday afternoon - and Tottenham fans could barely contain their excitement on Twitter.

The young duo - currently on loan from the north London club - are not quite producing their best in the Premier League, rather the Championship and League One, but still have a combined 27 league goals between them this term.

That is impressive at any level and makes a mockery of what Spurs' current wingers have produced this season.

Anyone who doubts the youngsters' ability to make the cut in the Tottenham first team is perhaps being understandably cautious. But Harry Kane is proof enough that, with limited experience at the top level, drive, quality and hard work can make you thrive.

And the prospect of Pritchard, on loan at Brentford, and Alli, at MK Dons, thriving at White Hart Lane next campaign is exciting plenty of Spurs fans. Indeed, social media was abuzz with talk of the duo making Mauricio Pochettino's first team when they link up with the rest of the Tottenham squad.

The future is certainly bright for the pair - but Spurs supporters will hope that turns into actual results, unlike several of the club's promising youngsters of bygone years...
