When Harry Kane returned to Spurs from his loan spell at Norwich, it seemed that the 19 year old would be first reserve should anything happen to senior strikers Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor.
However, the England under 19 international could have a rival in the shape of team mate Jonathan Obika. Both players have made contributions as Spurs under 21 side continue to shine in their version of the Premier League but it’s Obika who has stolen more of the headlines in recent times.
The youngsters beat their Manchester United counterparts by three goals to one at the weekend and Obika notched all three of them. While Kane has largely been injured during a goalless loan spell at Norwich, Obika has been consistent in the under 21 league throughout the campaign. However, Kane’s overall record whilst out on loan is much better.
Looking ahead to next season, if Spurs look to revert to four strikers at the club then there would be a place for one of these youngsters in the squad. But who would be on the bench and who would find himself out on loan once again?
