January signing Ezekiel Fryers continued his impressive form for the Tottenham youth team on Saturday when he scored in the 4-2 win over Arsenal in the Under-21 Premier League.
The former Manchester United left-back has been a regular in the youth team since completing his move from Standard Liege and will be hoping that his performances can catch the eye of first team manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Spurs have had problems at left-back this season as Jan Vertonghen and Kyle Naughton have both been forced to deputise for BNenoit Assou-Ekotto when he has been injured.
However, neither man is an out-and-out left-back and Fryers may well hope that he is given a chance to impress whenever Assou-Ekotto is ruled out of action. He will certainly not have done his chances any harm with his performance.
With Tottenham facing Arsenal in a crunch Premier League clash, this was an opportunity for the youth sides to show what they can do as Chuba Akpom's double was not enough to claim all three points for the young Gunners.
Instead it was the Tottenham academy that came out on top, despite the likes of Alex Pritchard, Ryan Mason, Harry Kane and Jon Obika all being sent out on loan in recent weeks.
It was Arsenal that took the lead through Akpom but Spurs managed to survive a nervy opening twenty minutes and the tide soon turned as Fryers showed his quality by calmly side footing the ball home from the edge of the box.
Laste Dombaxe then made it 2-1 when he converted from the penalty spot before a host of chances for both sides before the end of the first half.
Jake Munns grabbed two goals either side of a strike from Akpom as Tottenham cemented their place at the top of the elite group of the Premier League with five wins and one draw from their six games this season.
