Opinion: Pochettino must start these two youngsters against Colchester

Look at Frank Lampard this season at Chelsea. He has handed regular first-team spots to Mount, Abraham, and Tomori based on merit.

Each one of them has made the spot in the first-team their own and it doesn’t look like they will be going anywhere anytime soon.

Despite having a transfer ban and losing their best player, Chelsea have been injected with a new lease of life, with these youngsters coming in and showing drive and determination.

I think Tottenham are in dire need of the same effect in North London, and I think I know just the lads to supply it.

Both Troy Parrott and Japhet Tanganga look to be real talents within the Spurs academy ranks and they each showed their ability to compete in the first-team this pre-season.

I think Pochettino needs to start handing them some chances, particularly as the first-team is not performing at this moment in time.

These chances have to start with debuts against Colchester this evening. I want to see both players starting the match, before being given regular cameos and spots on the bench in the Premier League.

While Tottenham’s defence wavers, there is no point wasting a talented youngster in the U23 side. And while Spurs struggle to kill games off, Parrott is better served in the attacking line-up.

I honestly believe these two could be huge players for years to come for Spurs, if given the chance.
