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.

Nile John made the game safe in the second-half with a superb finish from outside the box.
