Team News: Dane Scarlett will start for Tottenham against Pacos de Ferreira

According to team news from The Athletic, Tottenham starlet, Dane Scarlett will be handed a start against Pacos de Ferreira. Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo spoke in his press conference ahead of the game about using the whole squad and including the youngsters as well.

This will be the first UEFA Europa Conference League game Spurs will be playing after UEFA kickstarted the competition from this season.

Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to go in with a much-changed line-up from the one that played against Manchester City on Sunday. A host of squad players, new signings and youngsters are expected to play a part in the game as confirmed by Nuno.

“This is a good chance for us to have the squad involved, to have young players from the academy also on the bench potentially. And this is how we want to build our squad, to have real competition.”

Scarlett in line for a start

There was also a confirmation that the talented 17-year-old Dane Scarlett would be getting a start in the game. Spurs fans of course know all about him by now after his exploits in the youth levels, on the back of which he was handed his senior debut and two more games last season.

“He’s going to start the game tomorrow. We have big, big expectations regarding Dane because he did so well in pre-season, which you recall the game against Leyton Orient in which he scored and he was involved in many of the games in pre-season. He’s a young talent that we want to develop. We want to make him better and want to make him grow because there’s a lot of potential there.”
