Spurs are in the midst of an injury crisis and could rest a host of stars ahead of the crucial Champions League game with Barcelona.

Christian Eriksen is one star likely to be benched with Wednesday's game in mind, with a hatful of other stars on the sidelines through injury.

Now Republic of Ireland Under-19s international Parrott could make his first-team debut.

The teenager has played a number of times in Spurs' Under-23s – and is unlikely to be fazed by the step-up.

Prior to his Ireland Under-19s debut, Parrott revealed he would not let nerves get the better of him.

He claimed: "I just focus on football, keep doing what I do and be the best for the team.

“It’s a good experience to play against bigger and stronger players because it makes me a better player but I don’t really think about it when I’m going into games.

"I just think about what I need to do well.”
