Spurs had a very difficult last season that saw long-serving manager Pocchettino sacked and replaced by Jose Mourinho halfway. The displays were laboured all season, once again star players had health problems and even after Mourinho’s arrival the team’s displays didn’t improve much. In the end, drama on the final day of the season saw Tottenham fortunate to qualify for Europa League in a very unconvincing manner. So far things had been quiet in the off-season, which hardly surprising considering that right now 54% of the club’s worth is depth accumulated during the recent completion of the ridiculously expensive new stadium. With not much money to spend only notable moves so far the signings of Hojbjerg from Southampton and wing-back Doherty from Wolves + the securing of Lo Celso on permanent terms. Vertonghen’s departure creates problems in defence where he was very useful for many years. Right now the outlook for next season is simple, get the ball to Son and Kane up front and let them do their thing. Knowing Mourinho this will be the most likely approach with Spurs expected to sit deep, crowd their own part of the pitch and simply look for long balls towards their 2 forward stars. Tottenham’s main strength has to be their front line, with lots of firepower in that area and also solid depth. Also after a season of adaptation and relatively sparse use, big things are expected from Lo Celso now as he is seen as the team’s new main playmaker. In terms of weaknesses there are serious worries about the defence, especially with the injury-history of most of the centre-backs.

Target


Desire is to get back in the top 4, but this task might be way too difficult.

Season Review
2019/2020

№6: Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham struggled in 2019/20 and failed to press on from their Champions League final appearance back in June 2019. This can partly be attributed to the owners vast spending on the new stadium and not on the playing squad. Sacking coach Pochettino early in the campaign (after round 12) and appointing Jose Mourinho as replacement steadied matters, but even this didn’t bring much of an improvement. In the end Spurs qualified for the Europa League after an unimpressive final round draw with Crystal Palace. Although level on points with Wolves, their superior goal difference proved decisive. In most games when Son and Kane were available the displays and the results were decent, with the attacking duo definitely amongst the strongest partnerships in the league. Unfortunately both players missed more than a third of the games either injured or suspended. Mourinho’s appointment brought better defensive stability and Tottenham became much harder to beat under the Portuguese. This proved decisive in June and July with only 1 defeat suffered in 9 rounds played post the COVID-break (W5 D3). Defensively many problems were present all season and none of the full-backs or the centre-backs had particularly memorable campaigns. Also Ndombele’s signing last summer proved unimpressive. Winks and Sissoko were also far from impressive in the heart of the midfield too. With Tottenham seriously restricted in their spending capabilities and with at least 2-3 stars wanting out, the 2020/21 season is shaping to be very challenging for the team, at least in terms of their top 4 chances.
