Yago Falque continued his superb form for the Tottenham Under-21 side as he scored two goals in the 4-0 win over Southampton on Monday night.

The Spanish winger was convinced to leave Italian champions Juventus on a permanent deal in January after originally moving to White Hart Lane on a season-long loan last summer.

Arriving at Tottenham with a big reputation, having come through the famed La Masia academy at Barcelona, Falque struggled to make an impact during a short term loan at Southampton as he made just one appearance for a Saints side that clinched automatic promotion.

However, this season he has been training with the Tottenham first team and manager Andre Villas-Boas handed him the chance to impress in the Europa League.

His performance in the 1-1 draw against Maribor was hailed by Villas-Boas and he has continued to excel while representing the Under-21 side which currently sits top of the league, two points clear of Manchester United.

The 22-year-old winger grabbed a brace against Southampton and further highlighted his potential, with the second goal particularly catching the eye as he thumped the ball home from 20 yards.

His first was perhaps a simply finish after some fantastic work from Dean Parrett who ran the ball all of 70 yards before putting the ball on a plate for the young Spaniard.

Jon Obika and Souleymane Coulibaly grabbed the other two goals as Tottenham continued their impressive form in the competition which is designed to help young players prepare for first team football.

Falque will be hoping his two goals do not go unnoticed by Villas-Boas who has already spoken in glowing terms about the talented young winger.

"He had an extremely good game," Villas-Boas said of Falque's performance against Maribor. "He had his first game against Carlisle. This is his second game against stronger opposition this season. He did extremely well.

"His performance made the link-up player better for us. He is a certainly someone we can count on."
