Name: Oliver Skipp
Club: Tottenham Hotspur
Made Senior Debut?: Yes (Tottenham Hotspur)
Current National Level: England U18 International
Last Season Summary
2018/19 – Last season saw Skipp brought into the first team by Pochettino. To have a manager like the Spurs man must be an absolute dream for a youngster. Playing in a holding role for Spurs in his eight appearances, Skipp held his own and was not afraid of a challenge. He was by no means a stand out player, but he gave a solid account of himself, with high passing accuracy with short precise passes, and only allowing 0.3 dribbles past him per game.
Footy Files expectations this Season
2019/20 – This season, it’s looking increasing difficult for any youngster to get into that midfield. With the signings of Ndombele and Lo Celso, coupled with Dier returning from injury the squad depth is quite crowded. Maybe a loan should have been on the cards? But at the age of 18, training with them players week in week out can only improve you. Hopefully we’ll get to see him in some cup games. He has had an impressive pre-season, with comparisons to Scott Parker..
