Oliver Skipp made his full Premier League debut for Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon in the 1-0 win against Burnley at Wembley.

The 18-year-old became Tottenham’s youngest starter in a league match since Gareth Bale featured against Manchester United in 2007.

Skipp is the youngest Premier League starter since then, and the fifth youngest in Tottenham’s Premier League history.

The Tottenham academy product also becomes the club’s first ever starter in the Premier League to be born in the 2000’s.

Forgetting about milestones and statistics, Skipp gave a good account of himself in the middle of the park and played some intelligent forward passes. He featured for 75 minutes until he was replaced by Christian Eriksen as Spurs went on to look for a winning goal, which was of course scored by the Dane.
