Tottenham Hotspur fans debate whether Alex Pritchard should get a chance next season

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

Tottenham Hotspur-owned Alex Pritchard has been playing superbly for Brentford in the Championship this season.

Tottenham Hotspur-owned Alex Pritchard has been one of the best players in the Championship this season.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder joined Brentford from Tottenham in the summer of 2014 on a season-long loan deal.

Pritchard has gone from strength to strength over the course of the 2014-15 campaign, as Brentford remain in with the chance of getting promoted to the Premier League.

In 45 Championship appearances for Brentford this campaign, the English youngster has scored 11 goals and created 110 chances.

The attacker has a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 52%, and he has won 57 tackles and 52 dribbles.

Pritchard is scheduled to return to Tottenham for the start of the 2015-16 season, and it remains to be seen if he can break into the first team at White Hart Lane.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has given chances to a number of young players at Spurs this season, such as Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb.

Many Tottenham fans would hope that Pritchard gets a shot too and builds on his marvellous development at Brentford.

However, there will be some key questions. Is Pritchard ready for the first team? Can Pochettino afford to put faith in another young player? Is there space for the Englishman in the squad?

Below are the thoughts of Tottenham fans on the issue (the comments were posted on this article: Tottenham Hotspur fans react on Twitter to Alex Pritchard’s performance for Brentford against Middlesbrough):

Kiri: “Will be better than Eriksen and Chadli, that for sure.”

Marcus Higgins: “Steady on, don't want to put too much pressure on his young shoulders besides the prem is the big boys league and a lot of players from lower leagues just don't make it, could apply to Alli too. We need to blood them in the cups first then we'll get a better idea. Alli's size and strength will give him an advantage over Pritchard.”

Muhoo: “He'll do well in the Europa cup but he's to inverted like Chadli,lamela,ericksen,can't we have an old fashioned winger like lennon back or Danny rose atleast on one flank.”

Simon Bull: “Saw him against reading a couple of weeks ago, he is like lamilia but doesn't track back or try and win the ball!”
