Spurs under 23’s versus Arsenal: (match preview)
North London Derby day is upon us, our under 23’s host arch rivals Arsenal on Monday lunch time at Hotspur way in an important PL2 encounter, for Burnett’s side. The gunners development squad have started the season in fine form and currently occupy third spot, with a game in hand. After doing the double over us last season, Burnett’s side will hoping to return to winning ways with victory over Arsenal, but with players such as Reiss Nelson, Francis Coquelin and Chuba Akpom all likely to be involved, that objective will be a very hard one to achieve. I will be covering tomorrows game from Hotspur Way and shall have my match report up by late evening, what a game this promises to be. COYS!
Absentees: TJ Eyoma, Tashan Oakley-Boothe and Jaden Brown.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Austin, Marsh, C.Maghoma, Tanganga, Bennetts, Skipp, Amos, S.Shashoua, Pritchard (c), Georgiou, Harrison.
My score prediction: 2-1 to Spurs courtesy of goals From Samuel Shashoua and Shayon Harrison.
One to watch: One of the most talented up and coming young English forwards, the versatile Reiss Nelson who has already played for the senior team this season, has already bagged six league goals for the gunners development squad and will be a real creative threat going forward.
