Last season, Andros Townsend was QPR's secret weapon, performing at a consistently high level for most of the season. Now, back at Spurs, he has stepped up in Aaron Lennon's place while he's been out with injury, and become a first-team regular.
Townsend has become a first-team regular for Spurs, since Lennon was injured. He's made eight starts for Spurs this season, six in the Premier League and twice in the Europa League, scoring one goal.
Also, in his full debut for England against Montenegro, he scored a wonderful goal to mark the occasion. He was also nominated for man of the match, making it a dream start for his international career.
The 22-year-old winger has been causing nightmares for defences this season with his blistering pace and his magical dribbling, leaving defenders in his wake. He has an incredible long shot on him to with either his left or right foot, making him unpredictable and deadly from any range.
He's fallen into some bad habits of not passing the ball and taking on shots when he has a better option, often blazing shots high and wide, to the frustration of fans and teammates alike.
However more often than not he troubles the keeper with his efforts, and more recently has been unselfish by passing the ball more often, making him an even more dangerous customer for the opposition to try and defend against.
All in all, it's clear that Andros Townsend is playing at the peak of his 22-year-old ability, with many years ahead of him too. He's already becoming a regular and important player for Spurs and, based on his performance against Montenegro, for England, showing that this rapid winger is certainly one to watch this season and for many more to come.
