Confirmed Tottenham U18 line-up to play Arsenal including Kazaiah Sterling

Here is how Tottenham Hotspur's under-18 side will line up this morning against Arsenal.

Tottenham under-18 starting XI: McDermott, Paul, Muscatt, Owens, Tanganga, Brown, Daly, Stylianides, Sterling, Edwards, Bennetts

Tottenham under-18 subs: Austin, Marsh, Duncan, Loft, Shashoua

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal fans are understandably looking ahead to tonight’s huge Capital One Cup third round clash at White Hart Lane, but the two sides’ younger players have a match of their own at the Gunners’ training ground earlier in the day.

Both sides have a number of talented young players coming through the ranks right now and while some of their under-21 stars will be looking ahead to potentially featuring for the senior teams, the under-18s are hoping this season is the next step on their own individual roads to potential superstardom.

The Tottenham player to keep a particular eye on is Kazaiah Sterling – a 16-year-old striker who is already making waves at under-21 level having made his debut at that level earlier in the week, scoring in a 7-4 victory against Leicester City.

They may be youngsters, but they already know the importance of a North London derby, so expect both sets of players to give this one their all ahead of the main event tonight.
