The youngster was included on the bench in our 2-1 win over Fulham, and he could play some of the games in the coming weeks.
Fernando Llorente was the striker in the win over the Cottagers, however, the Spaniard was not in great form and missed several chances.
It was Llorente who scored an own goal before Dele Alli and Harry Winks saved the game for us. The win came at a price with Alli picking up a hamstring injury, and it is to be seen for how long he could be out.
Harry Kane isn’t expected to return before March while Son Heung-min is participating in the Asian Cup. Spurs have more concerns regarding injuries with Lucas Moura battling for a starting place against Chelsea in midweek.
The Brazilian hasn’t played since our 7-0 hammering of Tranmere, and this could be the perfect occasion to try out Sterling.
The Englishman got his senior debut in the 3-0 win over APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League this season, however, the 20-year-old only got a few minutes on the pitch.
Mauricio Pochettino has turned to youth several times during his managerial career. This season has seen the rise of Kyle Walker-Peters and Oliver Skipp, and it will be interesting to see how Sterling does should he play for the side.
