Tottenham’s under-18 side demolished Arsenal’s youngsters 9-0 on Tuesday, and fans are calling for Reo Griffiths to make the leap to the first team.
With all the disappointment Spurs fans have suffered in the last couple of weeks, it is perhaps no surprise that they want some changes, and fans are hoping 17 year-old striker Reo Griffiths can get some first team action.
Top four is almost secure, and with no trophies left to fight for Mauricio Pochettino might favour youth in the final matches of the season.
With all the talks surrounding Harry Kane’s fitness, Reo Griffiths is certainly in with a shout of getting some game time.
Fans were struggling to contain their excitement on Tuesday as the U-18 side destroyed Arsenal’s albeit weakened U-18 side, and most of the excitement was around Griffiths.
The 17 year-old scored four (yes, FOUR) and assisted three in the match, and now has 27 goals in the U-18 division. No other player has more than 15.
Supporters have been going crazy about the young star’s performance and his overall form, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
Get him on the bench. Probably be more impactful than Sissoko and Llorente

Get him in for Watford

That size for age and them stats suggest he's an amazing talent which needs to be tapped into now

Should play for the first team once 4th is secured.

Right. Reo Griffiths with four goals and three assists in a 9-0 win against Arsenal.
Someone tell me why he isn't in the first team. The man is a legend.

Why is Llorente still in the first team but not Reo Griffiths

Spurs U18 striker Reo Griffiths, just 17 scored four times today against Arsenal and has total of over 30 goals in his second season. With 4 games left if we secure UCL maybe worth putting this lad on bench for a taster? #COYS #THFC
