Totenham's visit to Australia for the International Champions Cup was a success, even if the North Londoners lost their two games, as a number of youngsters impressed. 

Below are the three that arguably shined the most: 

Cameron Carter-Vickers

With there a vacant fourth spot in central defence, it is very telling the the US Under-23 defender played every minute of the two matches in Melbourne. After a shaky start against Juventus, Carter-Vickers went on to impress in both matches, demonstrating a powerful approach to defending and also showing off that he is comfortable in possession.

The 18-year-old was name checked by Mauricio Pochettino last season, and has been a major talent in the Spurs academy for a long time. It's very likely that he will be making his full first team debut in the coming season given performances such as these. 

Harry Winks

20-year-old England youth midfielder Harry Winks could have been the one young player who impressed the most. Already closer to the first team than the other two listed here, central midfield is a position the club have a couple of options in, but where Pochettino has struggled to find someone who looks at home alongside a more defensive midfielder.

Winks may have jumped, if not ahead, at least into competition for the number eight position in the side alongside Ryan Mason and Tom Carroll. His comfort in the pivot, where he can utilise his passing, might make him a better bet than the aforementioned duo, who would rather play further forward and lack the tactical awareness to take on the defensive responsibilities necessary in that position. With Mason and Carroll still linked with a departure, Winks could be one of the reasons why.

Marcus Edwards

Though the 17-year-old had considerably less minutes than a lot of the young players in Melbourne, it is hard to deny that he was one of the major talking points from the tour, especially after the match against Juventus.

The youngster's direct and skilful approach on the tour was on display during most senior football he has gotten so far in his career, but it proved that he is a special talent and came after reports this summer that he is set to be given some first team minutes when the season starts. With Pochettino admitting that attacking midfield was a position he wanted to strengthen in, but Spurs yet to sign one, Edwards would currently be significantly closer to the first team squad.
