Tottenham fans react to Dilan Markanday display for under-23s
A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Dilan Markanday after the striker scored another goal for the under-23s on Monday.
What’s the story?
Spurs’ youngsters gave the supporters something to smile about in the wake of the first-team’s North London Derby defeat.
They beat Derby 3-1 at the start of the week. Nile John and Alfie Devine scored either side of Markanday’s latest strike for Wayne Burnett’s men.
It was the 20-year-old’s fifth goal in Premier League 2 this season. Meanwhile, he also provided the assist for Devine, who completed the scoring in the second-half.
It certainly seems that the youngster is knocking on the door of Nuno Espirito Santo’s first-team. He has been included on the bench by the Spurs boss on a handful of occasions.
Tottenham return to action on Thursday. They face Mura in their latest Europa Conference League clash.
And some have supporters have implored Nuno to hand Markanday a chance.
Of course, Harry Kane has come in for a lot of criticism at the start of this season. He is yet to open his account in the Premier League.
‘My man of the match’: Tottenham fans laud Markanday after under-23 win
Dane Scarlett obviously, looks to be his understudy. But plenty clearly think that Markanday deserves the chance to show what he can do.
He is a few years older than Scarlett. And he is in brilliant form right now.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Tottenham fans were saying about Markanday after Spurs’ under-23s beat Derby County on Monday night…
Markanday scored again for the kids. He’s really putting in the consistency. Makes you really wonder if he could be our Riyad Mahrez.
You won’t believe they’re exactly the same height even though Markanday looks tiny. Both 5’8. I checked.

It was another good team performance tonight. Dilan Markanday my man of the match. He has now been directly involved in eight goals this season from seven games – five goals and three assists. https://t.co/0753WWjr7t

Start Markanday Thursday

Devine, Markanday and Scarlett need to be playing on Thursday. Many of the senior players at @SpursOfficial don’t deserve to block these guys any more. Skipp and Gil showed that on Sunday. https://t.co/36MPTYmz6I
