Tottenham Hotspur youngster Kazaiah Sterling has returned from injury, making his first under 23 appearance of the season this weekend.
Sterling has been among the top crop of academy talent in Tottenham for a good few seasons now, but at age 19 has yet to make that step up to the first team.
The forward provided an assist to Jack Roles in the game against Leicester City, which proved to be the deciding goal.
In total, Sterling has scored 12 goals in 30 appearances for the under 23 side.
It appears that Pochettino has already put his faith in both Oliver Skipp and Luke Amos as academy graduates this season, as the Argentine likes to bring through one or two each year.
However, Amos has now been ruled out for the rest of the season, and Spurs have struggled with first team injuries of late.
Perhaps it is a big ask for Sterling, but with a lack of depth in the striker position at Spurs, a scintillating run of form could at least put him into Poch’s plans.
