Report: On-loan Tottenham Hotspur prospect Alex Pritchard named in Championship top 10 players

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

Pritchard has wowed the audiences at Brentford this season.

As reported by the official Brentford website, Pritchard, 21, has been voted as the eighth best player in the Championship, after an astonishing season with the Bees.

As the small West London club have fought for a play-off place, the tricky playmaker has been central to all of Brentford’s great play, and he has excelled under the watchful eye of youth development supremo Mark Warburton.

In 43 games, Pritchard has netted 11 goals, registered seven assists, and has shown that he is suited to the energetic high-pressing game preached by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

He is one of the most prolific creators in the entire division, and it is that attacking flair which has catapulted the Bees to the upper echelons of the Championship table. They would probably be already promoted if it were not for a poor defence, and the frequency with which they give away cheap goals.

And Pritchard has put in all these great performances at just the tender age of 21. He is set to return to White Hart Lane at the start of next season, and it will be his incredible work rate and will to improve that should endear him to Pochettino.

If during pre-season with the Lilywhites he shows the same kind of form that he has produced with consistency in the second tier, he should easily make a name for himself in the Spurs squad, and be able to follow the likes of Harry Kane, Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason into a key first-team star.
