Waiting since 1987
Tottenham fans have been waiting for more than 25 years to win major silverware and this ‘Topsy-turvy ‘ season seems like the best opportunity for Mauricio Pochettino’s men. Spurs are sitting on 4th position in the Premier League, a mere 6 points away from the summit, where their North London rivals ‘Arsenal’ are at the moment.
The Great Wall of North London
Tottenham have the meanest defense in the league up till now. They have only 2 losses in as many as 20 matches, the best goal difference and have conceded the lowest number of goals this season (15 goals only). It is safe to say that after Leicester City, Spurs have been the most consistent side in the Premier League. This is all down to Mauricio Pochettino’s tactical mindset which allowed him to convert Eric Dier into a defensive midfielder. Furthermore, the incorporation of Toby Alderweireld into a back line that consisted of Vertonghen, Lloris, Walker and Rose has resulted in a more solid defense line.
Its not everyday a diamond is found in the rough and Mauricio Pochettino has found his diamond in Delle Alli. He was bought for a mere 5 million pounds from Mk Dons and has ‘literally’ hit the ground running. The 19 year old has scored 5 goals in 18 appearances for Spurs but it’s his link up play with his team (specifically Harry Kane) that is being appreciated. His pace helps Tottenham both in defense and in attack as well and his willingness to run allows him to play anywhere in midfield.
Mauricio Pochettino’s tactical set up has allowed each and every player to fill in for suspended or injured players.
Harry Kane has hit top form AGAIN.
Players such as Mousa Dembele and Andros Townsend are returning from injuries.
Tottenham have strengthened their bench with the likes of Son Heung-min, Ben Davies etc.
All in all, it seems like Spurs are the real deal this season. With a new stadium under construction Spurs winning the league this season would pave the way for further enhancement in their fan base and their image as a club.
