They must also look to secure Champions League qualification if they want to attract elite talents like him.
Two Tottenham stars are statistically among the best five young players in PL
Both Pape Matar Sarr and Desinty Udogie rank among the Premier League’s top young players in terms of performance, per Who Scored’s ratings.
Given that many had extremely low expectations going into the season, Tottenham supporters are understandably ecstatic about the start the Lilywhites have made.
The fact that the current Spurs team is made up primarily of young players whose prime years are still ahead of them is one of its most fascinating aspects.
Among them is Udogie, who has undoubtedly been the greatest left-back in the Premier League thus far this year. He has fit in perfectly with Ange Postecolgou’s system, playing the inverted full-back role.
The 20-year-old made his international debut last month, proving he is unfazed by the big stage during his maiden start for the Azzurri against England at Wembley.
Under Postecoglou, Sarr has also been a revelation, partnering with Yves Bissouma in the middle of the park to establish a powerful tandem.
Sarr and Udogie show that Spurs’ future is bright
Udogie and Sarr were in third and fourth place, respectively, among Whoscored’s five highest-rated players under 21 in the Premier League this season.
Without a doubt, as they gain more experience over the next few years, players like Van de Ven, Sarr, and Udogie will continue to grow. Tottenham’s ceilings are quite high, so it’s an exciting moment to be a supporter.
