Spurs fans react to Dilan Markanday hat-trick for under-23s
A number of Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Dilan Markanday after his hat-trick helped the under-23s beat Leeds 4-2 on Monday in a fantastic game in Premier League 2.
Tottenham have their first win of the campaign. They initially took a 2-0 lead before the home side managed to level the contest before the break.
However, Spurs would go back in front before half-time. And that goal would see Markanday complete a stunning hat-trick for the visitors.
Nile John made the game safe in the second-half with a superb finish from outside the box.
But it was Markanday that many supporters were raving about on social media.
He did not see a lot of the ball at Thorp Arch. Leeds dominated possession and probably created more chances.
But Spurs were absolutely lethal, particularly on the counter attack. And Markanday made the most of any chances that came his way.
In particular, his second goal was a real moment of brilliance. He used some brilliant skill to get away from Jack Jenkins and Charlie Cresswell and into the box. And he unleashed a thunderous effort into the roof of the net.
‘Due a first-team appearance soon’: Spurs fans laud Markanday after under-23s hat-trick
For many, it is a matter of time until he gets his chance in the first-team. He has already bettered his goals tally from last season in two games.
One supporter even suggested that the 20-year-old has a higher ceiling than Dane Scarlett.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Tottenham fans were saying about Markanday after Monday…
Markanday has to be due a first team appearance soon..

A very talented player who has been at the club for a number of years yet never given a chance for the first team nor loaned out (in my recollection).
