2017/2018 Tottenham Hotspur Season Preview

Tottenham Hotspur have played the most exciting football in the English top flight in the last two seasons and finished above rivals Arsenal for the first time in 21 years last term.

Can they do one better and deliver a first league title since 1961 – now that they have moved away from White Hart Lane and will play temporarily at Wembley, while their new Stadium is ready for the 2018/2019 season?

Spurs have a dynamic core of young players who have been given the opportunity to shine under Mauricio Pochettino and club chairman Dani Levy is determined to keep this core together, turning down several bids for their top performers like Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

The Lilywhites have been inactive in the summer transfer market where money has been flowing like wine. They seem immune to it all but is that the ideal thing for them?

The North London outfit have arguably the best young talent in England but they’ve sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City for a staggering £50 million. That simply signifies the fullback is no longer part of Pochettino’s plans.

Spurs didn’t do well in Europe last season, performing below par in both the Uefa Champions League and Europa League – where they had early exits while playing their home games at Wembley.

Things are capable of going Tottenham’s way this coming season as they have the best striker in England in Harry Kane, who has been beyond prolific, finishing as top goal scorer for the past two seasons.

Can the 24-year old Englishman along with his teammates finally deliver silverware for the first time since the League Cup in 2008?

It’s seems to be a mental deficiency that has stopped Tottenham from being crowned champions in the past two seasons and only time will tell if they can finally get over the hurdle.

  • If they still don’t improve their squad before the end of the transfer window, I see them finishing outside the top 4.
