Who exactly is George Marsh?

Tottenham Hotspur romped to victory against the already-relegated Huddersfield yesterday, as Lucas Moura led his side to a 4-0 victory.

Not only did this allow Spurs to leapfrog Chelsea back into third place in the Premier League, but it also significantly boosted their goal difference.

Pochettino made seven changes from the side that beat Man City last week, resting some of his key men, and even included young academy prospect George Marsh on the bench.

The 20-year-old has travelled as the 19th man, in case of injury/illness before, but this was his first appearance on the Tottenham senior bench.

Marsh was an unused substitute in the game, but it is a key step in his development nonetheless.

The young man made his competitive debut for Tottenham back in January, as a second half sub in the 7-0 win over Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup.

He is said to be a tough-tackling holding midfielder, who can also drop in a play as part of the back line, almost like a combination of Harry Winks and Eric Dier.

He was born in Pembury in Kent, and has played regularly for Tottenham youth sides over the past four years, including as part of the Under-19 UEFA Youth League quarter finals team of 2017/18.

It appears he could be next in a long line of academy central midfielders that Poch may look to bring through, after Harry Winks, Oliver Skipp, and Luke Amos.
