Tottenham play Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League this evening and with a host of senior faces left at home – Mauricio Pochettino could include a couple of youngsters in his squad to face the Serbian’s later tonight.
Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen and Erik Lamela all remain out injured, whilst Kyle Walker-Peters, Serge Aurier, Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks have all been left at home.
And whilst the likes of Harry Kane is fit and available to return, Spurs are going to be short of first-team numbers in the Serbian capital as they look to take a giant step towards making the knockout stages for the third consecutive season.
Two youngsters that could be included in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad are Troy Parrott, who was on the bench at Everton on Sunday and Japhet Tanganga, who has made just one first-team appearance this term, the Carabao Cup penalty shoot-out defeat at Colchester United in September.
The pair were both left out of the squad for Tottenham’s UEFA Youth League match against Red Star U19s which is taking place right now, meaning they’ve surely got a great chance of being involved at the Red Star Stadium tonight.
Good afternoon from the unique Voždovac Stadium in Belgrade, where our U19s face @crvenazvezda_en in the @UEFAYouthLeague at 4pm local time (3pm UK). This is a rooftop stadium – built on top of a shopping centre, two miles from the main stadium.
