Tottenham Hotspur fans pleased to see Oliver Skipp make his Premier League debut

The teenager was making his first appearance in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur swiftly got back to winning ways in the Premier League this evening following their loss to Arsenal at the weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men ran at 3-1 winners at Wembley. Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son scored the goals against an out-of-sorts Southampton who are waiting for the impact of their newly appointed manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

It was a performance full of positives for Spurs, including one very late in the game.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has rightly gained a reputation for blooding young players and yesterday he handed a Premier League debut to young midfielder Oliver Skipp.

The 18-year-old came on late in the game for Kieran Trippier, who was just returning from a groin strain.

Despite only getting a few minutes of action, Tottenham fans were instantly impressed. He played a delightful pass in for Danny Rose at one point which had Spurs fans up on their feet.

It was just a fleeting cameo. But, together with his League Cup appearance v West Ham and impressive pre-season, many Tottenham fans feel the club have another exceptional talent on their hands.

Hopefully, Mauricio Pochettino can find a way to best develop his talent going forward…
