North London has a new king after the Spurs’ heroics last season pushed Arsenal down the table. Now, the onus is on Mauricio Pochettino to show that the Spurs can push on to challenge for the title.
A season without Champions League football awaits the Gunners as they have been..
The Past Season
What a season this was for the Spurs. They’ve continued their upward trajectory for yet another season under the Poch as they bagged second place in the league.
The Spurs also had a decent Champions league run, but they’ll be wanting more as they take the stage at Wembley while the new stadium at White Hart Lane comes up.
Spurs have managed to keep together the core of their side this summer, apart from the notable departure of Kyle Walker to Manchester City for a mammoth 50 million. Forward Clinton Njie is also another to leave, but the Spurs are unlikely to miss the forward.
The purchasing has been the problem for the Spurs this summer. They’ve signed no-one. They’re going to have to get their chequebooks out pretty soon though, as Kyle Walker needs replacing, while an upgrade from Vincent Janssen would be welcome too.
Ones to Watch
With talent all over the pitch, it’s very hard to point out one player in particular that will drive the Spurs. Kane, Alli, Dier; the Sours have a strong spine of young English talent.
Another man that often goes under the radar is goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, whose glovework has allowed the men in front of him to flourish.
What to Expect
With the rivals splashing the cash, Spurs are going to have to make some additions if they want to remain on top. But this is by no means a weak side.
Expect them to be at the top of the pack and continuing to push for that elusive title. If all else fails, they can still probably finish above Arsenal.
