Tottenham Hotspur – Season Preview 2019/20

‘It’s been 58 years since Hotspur last won the league.’

This is a statistic that pains Spurs’ fans but with Mauricio Pochettino as manager, the club has made noticeable progression both on and off the pitch.

Spurs have registered four consecutive top-four finishes in the Premier League so could this finally be the season that they mount a serious title challenge?

Last season

Tottenham finished being Fourth in the Premier League last season but their most notable achievement was reaching the Champions League final.

Although they sadly lost to Liverpool in final, the fact that Spurs reached the final shows just how far the club has come under Pochettino.

Despite missing a large protion last season, Harry Kane still managed to score 20+ goals. Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura also enjoyed outstanding seasons and consistently stepped up with important goals throughout the campaign.

Next Season

Spurs will be looking forward to a full season at their new state of the art stadium and training ground.

Having played the majority of their home matches at Wembley last season due to the delayed completion of the new stadium, a settled home should significantly benefit the team this term.

Pochettino’s main aim will be to try and put an end to Manchester City’s dominance of the Premier League. City have won the previous two league titles and Spurs face a monumental task in trying to overcome Pep Guardiola’s side.

There is no denying that Spurs possess a squad jam-packed with world-class players. The key will be keeping all of their star performers fit while maintaining pressure on the league’s front-runners.

After failing to make a single signing last season, Tottenham recently smashed their transfer record by bringing in Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon.

The addition of Ndombele is a huge plus for the squad and the French midfielder’s box-to-box qualities will give the team an exciting new dimension.

Players In

  • Tanguy Ndombele – €60.00m from Olympique Lyon
  • Jack Clarke – €11.00m from Leeds United

Predicated League Finish
