A number of promising-looking Tottenham academy prospects have made their way onto the fringes of the first team this season.

Young midfielders Oliver Skipp and Luke Amos have both featured for Mauricio Pochettino, with the former earning the odd start in the Premier League, and the latter unfortunately now out with a long term injury.

Kyle Walker-Peters has continued to earn sporadic game time in the first team, including a trip to the Nou Camp in the Champions League.

Harry Winks has also stepped up to become one of the first names on the team sheet.

However, one name many people may have expected to be in and around the first team set up by now is Marcus Edwards.

The winger was one of the most promising talents in the academy when Pochettino first took charge, but after some disappointing loan periods in England, he is now trying his luck playing for Excelsior in the Eredivisie.

It looks as if things are looking up for Edwards, as he now has the most completed take ons in the entire League with 3.6, showing that he is consistently beating his markers week in week out.

Could he play a part at Spurs next season?
