Jack Roles has chance to prove he is Tottenham’s next Oliver Skipp

The recent rapid rise of Oliver Skipp has given Tottenham Hotspur’s talented crop of youngsters plenty of hope that they can make the first-team grade.

Skipp has stormed from the youth team to the first-team this season, making a handful of appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

At the weekend, Skipp made his first Premier League start and will look to kick on with the Spurs first-team.

And in tonight’s Checkatrade Trophy clash between Oxford United and Tottenham’s under-21 side, there will be a number of players hoping to catch Pochettino’s eye.

The 19-year-old is an attacking midfielder who plays out wide, through the middle or even up front.

According to transfermarkt, Roles has scored five goals and set up five assists in 18 games this season.

The talented teenager has spread these goals and assists out among the Premier League 2 competition, UEFA Youth League and the EFL Trophy.

Tonight, Roles will be hoping to add to that tally when Tottenham travel to Oxford.

And if he can continue to impress for the Spurs youngsters, it cannot be long before he receives a promotion.
