He has a big future ahead of him, and Postecoglou has already liked what he has seen.Jose Mourinho reveals why he gave Tottenham youngster Dane Scarlett his  debut against West Brom | Evening Standard

 

Ange Postecoglou says Dane Scarlett has impressed him at Tottenham

The one thing Tottenham fans will love about Ange Postecoglou is that he will give young players an opportunity whenever he can.

That was not always the case when Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte were at the helm, which makes the Aussie a breath of fresh air at the club.

Dane Scarlett is one young player who has been trying to break into the first team in recent years, and this season may well be the time for him

Postecoglou says he will decide over the next two weeks whether to keep him at the club or loan him out, but he admitted that the youngster has seriously impressed him.

The Spurs boss said in his press conference, as quoted by Football London: “He’s been really good. I’ve been really impressed with him since we’ve come in. He had a bit of an injury which set him back a little bit in pre-season but we’re keeping him with us at the moment.

“I’ll probably make the decision on Dane in the next couple of weeks. It’s always a fine balancing act of whether they stay with us in the training environment, depending on the type of game time we think they’ll get, as opposed to going out and getting some meaningful game time at his age.

“We’ll make that decision but I’m really happy with the way he’s developed and the way he’s training and we’ll make that decision over the next week or so.”

Tottenham have a big void up top following the departure of Harry Kane last week.

The Englishman was their best player, but now that he’s gone, Spurs need all the help they can get to replace his goals.

Postecoglou is likely to bring in a new striker in the coming weeks, but if for some reason that cannot be done, Scarlett could well get an opportunity.

It will be interesting to see how this pans out, but the fact that Scarlett has impressed Postecoglou is great news for him.

 

With Richarlison and Son Heung-min potentially in line to play in the centre, Spurs could well look at new wingers.

With that in mind, Doku – who has really impressed for Rennes and Belgium in recent years – could be a good shout.

As well as Tottenham, Manchester City and West Ham are apparently also in pursuit of the 21-year-old.

Dean Jones, speaking to GiveMeSport, says Doku is a player with “unbelievable potential” and is available at a “very reasonable price”.

“Doku has got unbelievable potential and ability,” he said. “But I probably didn’t see him making a move like this (to Man City) so soon.

“He does always get me excited though when I watch him play.

“He’s capable of really special things and is available at a very reasonable price as well, and that makes the deal potentially even more intriguing.”

Our view

Doku is a top talent who has proven himself at a very high level and has won plaudits from the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Kylian Mbappe.

According to reports, Rennes want £50million for him. Admittedly, that’s not cheap even for a top Premier League club.

However, considering Doku’s age, record and potential, the valuation is fair. And if he meets his potential, that £50million could end up looking “very reasonable” in future.

Let’s see what happens in the coming weeks. Surely it’s a matter of time before Doku makes a big move. Will it be to Spurs though, or another club – in the Premier League or elsewhere

Tottenham will make their home debut for the 2023/24 season on Saturday when Ange Postecoglou’s side host Manchester United in the Premier League.

A thrilling first half saw Spurs pick up a point in their opening game of the Premier League season, with goals from Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal securing a 2-2 draw against Brentford. James Maddison starred on his debut with two assists, and Postecoglou will be hoping his side can build on that performance with a tough task against United.

Erik ten Hag’s side were far from convincing in their opening game, but United still managed to win beating Wolves 1-0. The last meeting between the two sides ended in a 2-2 draw, with goals from Pedro Porro and Heung-Min Son helping the Lilywhites from two goals behind to claim a point.

So, could Spurs pick up their first Premier League win of the season? Let’s take a look.

We simulated Spurs vs Man United to get a score prediction

To complete this simulation, we used FIFA 23 and updated the squads with the latest injuries, transfers and suspensions. FIFA 23 is not up to date with the latest kits, managers or numbers, so both sides are in the kits from the 2022/23 season.

We predict that Spurs could line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with their line-up as follows:Vicario; Royal, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Bissouma, Skipp; Kulusevski, Maddison, Son; Richarlison.

After winning back possession in the middle, Maddison breezed past Casemiro’s challenge on the edge of the box before slipping a pass through to Son, but a curling strike by the winger was well saved by Andre Onana. The ‘keeper could only parry his shot to Kulusevski at the back post though, and the Swede got there ahead of Luke Shaw to make it 1-0.

As the second half began, United started to threaten the Spurs goal, with Marcus Rashford twice being denied from close range by some fantastic goalkeeping. A flurry of consecutive corners saw ten Hag’s side threaten the Spurs lead, and with a stroke of luck, the goal arrived.
