Taking a look at two Tottenham Hotspur youngsters who could still make their debuts this season.
Tottenham Hotspur are in the midst of a Premier League title race that could go down to the wire.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are five points behind leaders Leicester City with only seven matches remaining, and if the Foxes slip up and Spurs keep winning it could go to the final day of the season.
Alternatively Leicester could simply keep doing what they have been, and with Tottenham facing Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Southampton between now and May it would take an almighty effort to win them all.
If the worst happens and Tottenham are unable to catch Leicester with one or two games remaining, it would be the perfect time for Pochettino to give some more of his exciting young players their debut and here we take a look at two who could yet feature, depending of course on how things play out on the field.
Kyle Walkers-Peters was an unused substitute for Tottenham’s Premier League match against Bournemouth last weekend and the 18-year-old could get minutes between now and May.
The right-back has plenty of competition in the form of Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier but the current under-21 captain is a class act and should have a very bright future at the club.
Another defender, Cameron Carter-Vickers, would also have made this list were it not for the injury he suffered earlier this month.
While Tottenham are almost certain to sign at least one new striker this summer, they also have an exciting youngster in their ranks who could play a role from the bench.
Shayon Harrison scored regularly for Tottenham’s under-18s last season and he has already found the net seven times in 18 appearances for the under-21s.
Considering the 18-year-old’s ability, a late run-out between now and May is not beyond the realms of possibility.
