Report: Josh Onomah could make first ever Tottenham start against Monaco

White Hart Lane 6

Josh Onomah is in line to start his first game for Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur could give a start to Josh Onomah this week against Monaco, The Mirror report.

Onomah has played a cameo role this season, making six appearances from the bench in all competitions.

Three of these have come in the Premier League, but totalled only seven minutes of action. A further three have come in the Europa League, combining for 23 minutes.

Getting the chance to play the full 90 minutes or even close to it, would be hugely beneficial to a player on the cusp of making the breakthrough.

Chances in the Premier League are understandably more limited, so this Europa League game is an ideal opportunity to throw the England under-19 international in, and stake a claim before Alex Pritchard returns from injury next month.

Onomah has captained Tottenham's under-18 team and been a regular for the under-21s, but is now considered very much part of the first team set up.

Spurs have already qualified for the knockout rounds of the Europa League, and need only a point at home to Monaco to clinch top spot.

The Mirror's report also claims defender Kevin Wimmer is likely to see action, along with fellow summer addition Clinton N'Jie.
