Mauricio Pochettino compared Marcus Edwards to a young Lionel Messi earlier this week and the similarity is there to see in the latest goal from the attacking midfielder.
Edwards found the net in the heavy 6-2 defeat in the Premier League 2 match against Liverpool, beating three players with amazing dribbling before tucking the ball away.

The teenager could make his full debut tonight, despite playing against Liverpool on Monday. The League Cup tie at home against League One outfit Gillingham, looks the perfect opportunity for Pochettino to unleash Edwards, though having played a match so recently, we might have to wait until he comes off the bench.
