Opinion: A Tottenham XI and bench for the future – Players 23 and under only

Tottenham Hotspur may not be performing at their best right now, but they certainly have some bright young players for the future, if they play their cards right.

I wanted to take a look at a possible Tottenham XI of players 23-years-old and under, obviously not including any stars that Spurs may sign in the near future.

Perhaps the toughest pick comes in goal, as you rarely see a top-six club academy keeper break through, but I have opted for Alfie Whiteman for now.

At left-back, Ryan Sessegnon lines up, with Japhet Tanganga filling in at right-back due to the limited options.

In central defence, Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth partner each other as a relatively young but experienced duo.

In central midfield, Harry Winks and new boy Gedson Fernandes form a partnership, with the talented Ndombele freed up in a more advanced role. Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli both offer back up to Troy Parrot up front.
