Tottenham should axe Shayon Harrison despite injury crisis

Shayon Harrison has struggled to step up to senior football.

Mauricio Pochettino’s options have been stretched this month with a flurry of injuries to attacking players coming at once.

Harry Kane suffered an injury against Manchester United, ruling him out until March, while Dele Alli limped off against Fulham.

They join Lucas Moura on the injury list, while Son Heung-Min represents South Korea in the Asia Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur will either look to sign a new player this month or promote from within.

There has been plenty of speculation about which youngsters Pochettino might be tempted to use in the first-team. Troy Parrott and Kazaiah Sterling are two potential options, with the latter taking a place on the bench.

But Shayon Harrison’s chances of playing first-team football are slim as he has struggled to step up to the professional game.

The 21-year-old has played one game for Tottenham, which was a seven-minute cameo in the cup against Liverpool.

 

It could have been a different story for him, but he fluffed a one-on-one chance in that match.

Harrison has been out on loan twice, scoring just one goal in a combined 28 matches for Yeovil Town and Southend United.

That goal return is simply not good enough for a striker and it would not do much to convince Spurs to give him any chances in their first-team.

Despite the injury crisis, Tottenham should send Harrison on loan this month to give him one last chance to prove himself.

But if he fails to impress, he returns to Spurs aged 22 and his future at the club looks non-existent.
