Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino made plenty of changes as his side squared off against Barnsley in the EFL Cup this week, and one of the most impressive performances came from young full-back Kyle Walker-Peters.

Tottenham fans have been raving about the 20-year-old for years now, but what they will have realised watching him against the Tykes is that he is well and truly ready for regular first-team football.

Walker-Peters is predominantly a right-back, although he has operated on the opposite flank for the under-23s on occasions, and it was on the left where he started this week.

While it may be his weaker position on paper, the Spurs youngster set about the task with aplomb and his composure and attacking intent were clear to see from the outset.

He may need to work on his final ball but that will come in time and it is evident that he has outgrown Tottenham's under-23 side.

With Danny Rose still side-lined, and the matches coming thick and fast, it looks as though Walker-Peters will get more chances to impress for Tottenham in the coming weeks. But when everyone is fit and available he may need to head out on loan to ensure he gets the regular first-team football his talent and hard work deserves.

A class act who did not let his unfamiliar position faze him, Walker-Peters is one of Tottenham's best young talents and it will be interesting to see what the next few seasons have in store.
