Tottenham showing courage by giving young players opportunities - Yorke

Sky Sports football expert Dwight Yorke believes Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has shown courage by giving opportunities to young players such as Ryan Mason, Dele Alli and Eric Dier.


Mason scored a late winner to help Spurs claim their first victory of the season as they defeated Sunderland on the weekend.

"It was vital for both teams and Spurs will be the happier team," Yorke said.

"I just think that Spurs have shown a lot of courage, particularly the young players, and that is something that their manager obviously believes in, giving the young players an opportunity.

"One of their young players has got them ahead and got them the points."
