Tottenham Hotspur talent Luke Amos should get the nod against Watford.

Tottenham Hotspur midfield talent Luke Amos was the club's pre-season star.

The youngster could now be set for his first ever competitive start for the club.

Amos made his debut on the first day of the season as a 90th minute substitute against Newcastle.

 

Regrettably the 21-year-old has not featured since, despite injuries to first team midfielders.

Now he could get the chance to stake his claim, as Spurs visit Watford in the Carabao Cup.

Amos was last seen captaining Tottenham's under-23s in their 2-0 win over Manchester City on September 14.

This past weekend he was not involved at all, and Spurs' under-23 side lost 6-0 to Everton without him.

Amos was likely being kept aside for midweek involvement for the first team against Watford, with Tottenham needing to rotate their side.

Moussa Sissoko, Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks are all desperate for minutes - yet Amos is also in the mix too.

He was Tottenham's breakout star of pre-season, starring against AC Milan, Roma and Barcelona.

Playing against Watford will be tough, but it won't daunt him.
