Three Tottenham U23 stars in first-team training ahead of Thursday clash v Mura
Three Tottenham U23 stars were spotted in training ahead of Thursday’s trip to Mura – in Jack Clarke, Dilan Markanday and Brooklyn Lyons-Foster.
After four games, Tottenham sit second in Group G with just three points needed from their remaining two games. Spurs beat Mura 5-1 at home.
Antonio Conte is likely to bring in a few fringe players on Thursday, and the inclusion of Clarke, Markanday and Lyons-Foster will excite fans.
Perhaps the least surprising of the three, Markanday has been on fire for Tottenham’s 23’s. He has already made his senior debut, this season.
The 20-year-old for three assists in a 4-1 win over Leicester – taking his goal involvements to 17 in 15 games for the 23’s this term. He could feature.
Also 20, Lyons-Foster has captained the 23’s in seven of his 13 games this season – and has appeared on the senior bench in two games so far.
He is yet to make his senior debut but with Antonio Conte preferring to play three at the back, Lyons-Foster could soon get his chance on Thursday.
Perhaps the most-surprising inclusion of the three, but certainly the more senior – 21-year-old Clarke will be hoping for a chance to prove his fee.
Costing £10million in July 2019, he has struggled to get game time. Four senior outings and three loans, have not worked.
But after five assists in 14 games from out wide for the 23’s, and a goal, Clarke might be used by Conte if Son Heung-min needs a rest.
