Marcus Edwards marked his return to north London by giving new club Vitoria the lead against Arsenal at the Emirates.

The 20-year-old was once nicknamed ‘Mini Messi’ by Mauricio Pochettino back in 2016, but failed to live up to expectations at Tottenham, making just one Carabao Cup appearance before he was sold to the Portuguese outfit earlier this summer.

But Edwards reminded everyone of his incredible talent by twisting and turning before putting Vitoria 1-0 in front with a tidy low finish.

Have a look at Edwards’ fine individual effort in the video below.



  1. Possibly had an attitude problem but very young and surely would have matured.Undoubted talent; shame we never really gave him a chance.
