Tottenham Hotspur are currently out in Australia where they faced Juventus in Melbourne this morning.

They lost the game 2-1 but the performances of several young players was a major positive from the game.

Three of those players who featured were Joshua Onomah, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Marcus Edwards.

Speaking to Fox Sports this week club legend and ambassador Ledley King tipped those three talented players from the bunch to go all the way to first-team regularity.

King stated:

“It was only a few years ago that Harry (Kane) was one of the young players on a pre-season tour. It just shows what can happen in the space of a few years. We’ve got some really talented young players…

“They’re all really talented players but Josh Onomah is a really big, powerful lad. He just turned 19 and has got a lot of potential. Also defender Cameron Vickers has huge potential, and also a young lad Marcus Edwards, look out for him.”

Onomah has already featured for the Tottenham first-team, featuring throughout last season.

Carter-Vickers and Edwards meanwhile have not yet played a competitive game for the club but both looked impressive v Juventus today, although the American defender did have a ropey start to the game.

But the talent is clearly present in all three players. Tottenham fans are very excited about the trio, and several other of the young players emerging at Spurs at the moment, especially given the fact manager Mauricio Pochettino enjoys bringing through young talent.

Spurs fans will no doubt hope that the trio can go on and follow in the footsteps of their former hero King and become Spurs stalwarts.
