Tottenham youngster Sessegnon ready for showdown against Chelsea duo Abraham, Mount

Tottenham youngster Ryan Sessegnon is determined to catch up on his England peers.

The 19-year-old winger played alongside the likes of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount and striker Tammy Abraham at the Under-21 European Championships last summer.

Yet while their Premier League careers have taken off this season, Sessegnon has been left on the runway because of injury.

He told the Mirror: “It's been good for Tammy and Mason.

“They are doing very well and I'm happy for them.

“It's neck and neck between us and Chelsea to get that fourth place at the moment. So we'll be looking to go there and win the game, obviously, and hoping they drop more points.

“When you look at what Mason and Tammy have have done so far this year, and what Mason did at Derby and Vitesse before that, you see that they are fantastic young players.

"At the Euros I played alongside him, Phil Foden, James Maddison and Dom Calvert-Lewin.

“You could say there's a little bit of 'it could have been me' when I see the way that they've kicked on this season. But everything happens for a reason.

“So I'm going to stay calm and positive. I'm not going to try not to put too much pressure on myself as I've done before."
