Marcus Edwards captained Spurs, and put his side ahead with a composed penalty, which he won himself.

He then got a second of the afternoon following a weaving dribble.

The 18-year-old’s all-round play stood out, particularly his ability to keep the ball in tight areas.

So impressive was his performance that plenty of onlookers seem to think he’s got what it takes to break into Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team on a regular basis.

It was all the more telling that Edwards’ performance was the main talking point given what Keanan Bennetts also did for Spurs in the first half.

Just have a look at this run…

Edwards’ name has been talked about as a future Spurs first-teamer ever since he was linked with Barcelona as a 16-year-old.

Even during the last transfer window he was rumoured to be the subject of interest from Ajax, who were keen to take him to Holland.

But Spurs held on, with the winger signing a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2020.

So will he be the next Marcus off the production line?
