Five of the best Tottenham young players will be in the Under-23s team that faces Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, according to a report.

The unofficial Tottenham academy account claims academy products Josh Onomah, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Marcus Edwards, Kyle Walker-Peters and Luke Amos are set to face Liverpool in the clash at Anfield.

Manager Ugo Ehiogu is set to field a strong line-up for the landmark fixture, as attacking midfielder Onomah and centre-back Carter-Vickers were unused substitutes for the senior Spurs side that beat Middlesbrough 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Edwards, 18, also travelled with the first-team squad and was in the dugout, although the highly rated attacking midfielder was omitted from the matchday 18.

Centre-back Walker-Peters has also trained with the first team squad in recent weeks, while defensive midfielder Amos has a growing reputation.

The academy account has a growing reputation as a reliable source of Spurs news, and has broken a number of stories about youth-team players and coaches at the club, including the revelation last summer that Edwards had committed to a new White Hart Lane deal.

The account also revealed 10 days ago that centre-back Anton Walkes “is likely to join an MLS side on loan”, and  Tottenham then officially announced 24 hours later that the 19-year-old had agreed a moved to the States to Atalanta.

Spurs’ senior team are next in action on Saturday of next week when, coincidentally, they travel to Anfield to face top-four rivals Liverpool as they aim to keep the pressure on league leaders Chelsea.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are nine points adrift of Chelsea in the wake of the weekend fixtures.
