Mauricio Pochettino Reveals Number Of New Players He Wants This Month

We're trying to develop ourselves as players and as a team. Tottenham's starting XI (when all healthy) is still one of the best in the Premier League, but players can start to plateau if they know there's no one behind them that pushes them to keep their place.

But Eric Dier and Dele Alli have emerged as targets for Bayern Munich and Barcelona respectively.

"We have many challenges ahead, including playing at Wembley, but the result against Juventus was fantastic and we are ready to compete on Sunday at Newcastle, which will be a very tough game".

Spurs boss Pochettino will learn the full extent of Trippier's ankle injury today after the right-back left Wembley on crutches following Saturday's 2-0 win against Juventus.

However, people constantly underestimate Spurs when making pre-season predictions, there's no reason they can't do well in every competition.

Spurs didn't suffer many long-term injuries last season.

But Tottenham's Wembley woes are being felt elsewhere, argues BT Sport, claiming the "redevelopment of White Hart Lane seems to have hindered their ambitions in the transfer market".

This is the seventh successive Premier League season that Tottenham will play their opening Premier League game away from home.

It would be a surprise if Tottenham didn't make a single signing this summer, as it could slow down their progression under Pochettino. In addition, Spurs are building the newest, biggest, and best club stadium in England, which will open in fall 2018.

Kane has scored 20 goals in his last 15 Premier League games against newly promoted sides - three of his six top-flight hat-tricks have been against newly promoted teams (Leicester in 2014-15, Bournemouth in 2015-16 and Hull last season).

Football Insider analyses three ways in which Tottenham can line-up in defence against Newcastle, without Trippier on the right side of their back line, including how a 10-time worldwide could make his debut. Till then, they will play all their designated home matches at Wembley Stadium this season.

"It is so hard when you have a very good team and at a club like Tottenham you have a very clear philosophy and a plan that you want to follow", the Argetine said.

After a remarkable second-place finish a year ago, can Spurs push on?

If Spurs do not build on their current side by the end of the transfer window, and if they do not drastically improve upon their form at Wembley last season, it is hard to see them challenging for a top four position considering the way their fellow contenders have strengthened.

So how well prepared are Spurs to get off to a good start in 2017-18?

Mauricio Pochettino's men have finished second in each of the past two Premier League seasons and the Spurs boss will need to rely on numerous same names this year too.
