Some Spurs fans want 'awesome' 20-year-old attacker promoted to first-team
A number of Spurs fans have called for Dilan Markanday to earn a promotion to the Tottenham first team.
The 20-year-old has been in superb form for Spurs’ age teams this season so far.
Markanday has netted four goals in three Premier League 2 games for Spurs.
He also weighed in with two assists in Tuesday’s EFL Trophy win over Stevenage.
Harvey White scored twice for Tottenham with Yago Alonso and Brooklyn Lyons-Foster also on target.
And Markanday set up Alonso’s 24th-minute goal as well as White’s second in the 50th minute.
Stevenage put pressure on Spurs as they netted three times to get back to within a goal.
However, the visitors remained in front throughout and ran out 4-3 winners in the end.
Markanday made the Tottenham squad for their Europa Conference League qualifying second-leg win over Pacos de Ferreira.
However, he still awaits his Spurs debut, and some fans reckon he’s due some senior game time as well as a promotion:

I was there last night, we was awesome. Raw talent, pace, skill, touch and pocket power. We are lucky to have him— Tom Nancarrow (@TomAntNan) September 1, 2021
We should give him a chance soon, he can finish aswell unlike Moura and Bergwijn.— Jelly & Ice Cream (@itsjellyandicec) September 1, 2021
Serious market for Levy to explore if Markanday can make it. Kid looks like he has something. Hopefully he becomes a fixture in the Europa Conference squads or even team— Dec (@ThfcDec) September 1, 2021
Please get Markanday into permanent first team training— Jack ⚽️ (@jack_thfc_) August 31, 2021
