Ex-Spurs academy player Marcus Edwards scores against Arsenal in Europa League

Marcus Edwards, a name not many Tottenham fans will remember.

The exciting forward was once the hope of Spurs’ academy, but a promotion to the first-team under Mauricio Pochettino never materialised.

Edwards is now plying his trade with Portuguese side Vitoria and he started tonight against Arsenal in the Europa League.

And guess what? He scored inside eight minutes at the Emirates Stadium.

Edwards capitalised on a mistake from Kieran Tierney and fired the ball home to give the visitors a shock lead in north London.


The youngster is from Camden Town and a goal against Arsenal is a moment he will never, ever forget.
