West Ham under-23s beat Tottenham Hotspur’s youngsters 3-1 last night and Sonny Perkins stood out as the main man yet again.
The West Ham U-23s fired themselves back into contention for the Premier League 2 title with the three points against Tottenham.
Manchester City’s youngsters drew 3-3 with Arsenal and now sit just six points above us at the top of the table but crucially, we have two games in hand over them.
Mark Robson has done a fine job with the young players at the London Stadium and it seems as though the future is very bright indeed for the Hammers.
David Moyes will be absolutely delighted with how the West Ham under-23s have gone about their business this season.
And last night’s performance against Tottenham under-23s further underlined just how talented this group of young players are.
West Ham beat Tottenham under-23s and Sonny Perkins shines again
Spurs youngsters are no mugs.
They are currently sitting in fifth spot in the Premier League 2 table. But they met their match in the Hammers youngsters last night.
Mark Robson’s side cruised to a 3-1 win and Sonny Perkins really stood out.
The 18-year-old scored a goal in the first-half before setting up Kamarai Simon-Swyer to score our third and end Tottenham’s hopes of taking anything from the game.
Perkins has been sensational for the West Ham U-23s this season. He’s now bagged 12 goals and two assists in 23 games for the youth team (Transfermarkt).
His all around performance last night was crucial to the Hammers’ win over Spurs. Perkins clearly has a very bright future in the game ahead of him.
If he continues to work hard and applies himself correctly off the pitch, the sky will be the limit for the Hackney-born forward.
Last night’s win over Tottenham was a huge one for West Ham’s under-23s and now it remains to be seen whether we can chase down Manchester City in the race for the PL2 title.
