Tottenham fans excited by Oliver Skipp’s potential

Tottenham Hotspur sealed progression to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 7-0 thrashing of League Two side Tranmere Rovers on Friday night.

A Fernando Llorente hat-trick, a brace for Serge Aurier, and goals for Heung-min Son and Harry Kane sealed the emphatic result for Mauricio Pochettino’s side. The Spurs boss was also able to give valuable first team minutes to the likes of George Marsh and Timothy Eyoma, whilst Oliver Skipp started and played the full 90 minutes.

After a tricky opening half hour, Skipp grew into the game and began to show his quality. The 18-year-old midfielder ended the match with two assists and with his reputation greatly enhanced. His technical ability, determination and eye for a pass stood out amongst his finer attributes on the night.

The England under-18 international clearly has huge potential and could well be a star of the future.
