Jan Vertonghen

Tottenham fans would be looking forward to a quick end of the international break as our next opponents are Arsenal. We have been the dominant team of the two since Mauricio Pochettino took over the managerial post and even though we would be playing at the Emirates, the ‘favourites’ tag would be on the players in white.

There is, however, some concern regarding our defence. Jan Vertonghen, who possibly is one of the best defenders in the world, has picked up a slight knock while training for Belgium, as reported by HITC.

The centre-back would join his compatriot Toby Alderweireld on the treatment table and that would leave us short of first-team defenders against the Gunners. However, the report claims that we could see Juan Foyth make his debut for us in the Premier League if the pair doesn’t recover in time. Foyth was signed by the club after a summer of negotiations that went on for weeks.

The Argentine has not played in the league yet but he made a couple of appearances in the Carabao Cup and did impress in his limited role. But playing against a Premier League side is a different ask. Making him face Arsenal would be a baptism of fire but the youngster might just take it in his stride and perform to his potential.

Juan Foyth

A Defensive Headache For Pochettino

We do prefer playing with three at the back but not having the Belgian pair might just lead to a change in formation. Davinson Sanchez would be starting for us alongside Eric Dier in all probability but can we take the risk by playing Foyth at the back?

The youngster still needs time to understand English football and the Gunners at home are never easy fodder so Pochettino might not take the plunge and start Foyth against them.

However, the Argentine has a lot of faith in his youth players and it would not be a surprise if he did stick with three at the back and gave Foyth his Premier League debut at the Emirates.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium saw artificial lighting for the pitch being tested in the past week. The moveable lights are expected to help the pitch grow but there was no grass on the surface as per the video.

Football.london claims that the new pitch could be laid as early as October. The report adds that construction firm Mace revealed at a “Business Community Liaison Group” at Lilywhite House that the pitch would be laid in October.

The report adds that the dates for the test events would be revealed a month ahead of their schedule. The construction firm and club are certain that there would be no more delays regarding these events.

Football.london further claimed that an artificial NFL pitch has been installed at the base of our new home.

The latest revelations are good news for Tottenham fans who have been waiting for the stadium to be completed.

We all know that our first visitors were supposed to be Liverpool and we have been playing our Premier League home games at Wembley so far. Tottenham did play all their home games at Wembley last season as well and so, playing at this venue shouldn’t be a problem for the team.

Dele Alli

Tottenham will play their Carabao Cup Third Round clash against Watford at Stadium MK. The decision was taken with the help of the FA as Wembley is unavailable on Wednesday.

This would be our second home stadium this season after Wembley. Stadium MK will hold special memories for Dele Alli as we signed the youngster from MK Dons a few years ago.

The Englishman has become a crucial player for us and the midfielder spoke about returning to his old stomping ground.

The 22-year-old claimed that he tried to push the stadium to be selected for the clash against Watford.

Alli added that he was excited as the rest of the Tottenham players would visit Stadium MK. The 22-year-old had even hyped up the venue to his teammates.

It isn’t easy to make it to the top level and Alli added that his initial aim was to break into the first-team at MK Dons and then take it from there.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.
