Tottenham Hotspur and AS Monaco clash later this week.
On Thursday evening Tottenham Hotspur take on AS Monaco in their final Europa League group game.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side has already reached the knockout stages but they will want to finish with a win, especially when you consider how impressive this Spurs side has been so far this season.
But the match could also allow Pochettino to give some of Tottenham’s next generation a chance to impress, either from the outset or from the bench, and here we take a look at three candidates:
Midfielder Harry Winks made his Tottenham debut in the Europa League last season and after featuring for 14 minutes against FK Qarabag back in September, he deserves another outing this week.
The 19-year-old is regarded as one of the club’s brightest prospects and after being named on the bench for the weekend clash with West Bromwich Albion, he could get some more minutes under his belt.
Like Winks, Josh Onomah was on the bench at the weekend and the 18-year-old has already made three substitute appearances in Europe this season.
Onomah is clearly rated by Pochettino as the youngster has also come on late in three league games and this could be the perfect chance to give him his first start if the manager is bold enough.
The least likely to feature but arguably the most exciting, Shayon Harrison is an 18-year-old striker who is yet to make his first-team debut despite being included in the travelling party in the past.
Harrison scored a hatful at under-18 level and he already has five goals in 16 appearances for Tottenham’s under-21s, so what chance a late appearance from the bench on Thursday?
