Danny Rose is wrong: Spurs pay ratio sits between Man United & Arsenal

For the second season running, Mauricio Pochettino's vibrant young Tottenham Hotspur side challenged for the Premier League crown last campaign - with all signs indicating the only way was up. That they haven't signed any players this summer, nor won a trophy since 2008, is a sign of something important missing to their current identity - a sense of grittiness and hardline determination, perhaps.

Gary Jacob reported for the Times that Rose will make his case to leave Tottenham if Chelsea make a firm offer for his services, although a move to Old Trafford also interests the former Leeds United defender.

Dele Alli fired Tottenham to a 2-0 victory at Newcastle on Sunday after the England midfielder was involved in the crucial dismissal of Magpies midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.

Oh, Danny Rose. The Tottenham camp was looking like a bastion of calm and positivity, only for the left-back to put his foot in his mouth on the eve of the season with an interview that must have angered coach Mauricio Pochettino. The runner-up in English football's top tier last season is yet to improve its squad but has lost Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £54 million. Instead, Spurs will depend on virtually the same team as past year.

He has done so well in getting these young players to believe in his footballing philosophy and getting them to play in such a high-intensity style both in and out of possession.

Harry Kane again recorded phenomenal goal-scoring stats last season, hitting 29 in 30 league appearances, providing seven assists to boot.

Sissoko may start at Newcastle, but Davies definitely will with Danny Rose still out with a knee injury. Spurs may be in a club of one soon, an unwanted position.

Kane will register his 100th goal for the club if he scores in Sunday's Premier League match at Newcastle, a milestone he will have reached in 166 games.

The worst situation now would be for Spurs to return to a side that helps to produce great players, but then can not keep hold of them and can not build on their squad.

'If you look at the history of Tottenham in the last few years, we always spend at the end of the window'.
