Tottenham’s NextGen stars host Anderlecht at Hotspur Way on this afternoon needing just a point to secure their progression to the knockout stages of the tournament.

Alex Inglethorpe’s men will be going into the game full of confidence following their 4-1 demolition of Barcelona in their last outing.

Currently, Spurs are three points adrift of the Catalan giants but a win over the Belgian side will see them sit level on points at the top of Group One with only goal difference separating the sides.

The return of highly-rated playmaker Alex Pritchard, who was suspended for the 1-1 draw in Anderlecht, is a huge boost for Spurs.

Pritchard has four goals in the tournament so far and is earmarked to become one of the stars of the future with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona monitoring his progression.

He is small, aristocratically upright, and has wonderful skills with both feet. He has been named Tottenham’s breakout star of the season following his stunning performance against Barcelona’s future superstars.

Another name to watch out for is Shaquile Coulthirst. The young striker scored the perfect hat-trick in that famous victory over Barcelona last month.

A goal with his head, left-foot and right-foot was a great showcase of his talents and to do it against Europe’s top club makes it that bit more impressive.

Tottenham go into the game with Anderlecht knowing that defeat will see them knocked out of the competition.

But anything less than victory for the Belgian giants and they know it will be them that are packing their bags.

Both teams have to go for it and it should make for an enticing encounter at Hotspur Way.

Kick-off on is at 1pm.
