This teenage sensation can help lift the gloom at Tottenham after Harry Kane injury
COMMENT by Amir Mir
The mood around White Hart Lane would have significantly dropped when Tottenham ace Harry Kane was forced off injured during the 6-0 FA Cup win against Millwall on Sunday.
Kane has been a key figure to the club’s success this season and losing him for any period of time will be a body blow to the supporters.
At this moment in time, the spirits are low at the club, but teenage sensation Marcus Edwards could be the player to help lift the gloom around the place.
The 18-year-old played the full 90 minutes for the under-23s on Monday night as they demolished Reading 4-0 in Premier League 2.
Versatile attacker Edwards is highly-rated amongst the senior figures at the club and had it not been for a three-month injury layoff, he would have played a lot more than just one game for the club this term.

With the possibility of Son Heung-Min filling Kane’s shoes, it will leave a place out wide in Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
Rather than play the £30million flop Moussa Sissoko, Pochettino should decide to give Edwards a run in the senior side.
Coming on as a substitute or even starting a game, Edwards would instantly lift the place and provide a fresh attacking threat to the team.
With the north London club set to compete for a place in the final of the FA Cup, alongside securing a top four finish, that extra bit of energy will be needed in the final months of the campaign.
Added with his pace and ability to get past defenders, Edwards can be that secret weapon for Pochettino as he could more than definitely provide more quality than the out-of-form Sissoko.
