Realistic Expectations For Tottenham Next Season: Can Spurs Challenge For The Title?

Published

Tottenham

It is safe to say that Tottenham Hotspur are taking every single step with caution this summer. In the world where the clubs spend humungous amount of money, Tottenham are standing firm on their side and their manager Mauricio Pochettino knows what will be the next step. The Lilly-Whites had a season to remember last term, but only due to some poor show in the last couple of games, they slipped from their spot and eventually ended the campaign at third.

And now, the third position means, the side will be participating in Europe’s prime competition UEFA Champions League. The team is now currently preparing for the pre-season friendlies and this is where the manager will identify the roles of the players for the up coming season. The arrival of top class managers in the Premier League has surely toughened up the league and therefore, the manager and his players, will have to concentrate only on their performance.

As stated earlier, the manager has been very cautious regarding the transfers as he has only signed two players, namely, Victor Wanyama from Southampton and Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar. Tottenham’s campaign in the Premier League will kick off on 13th of August2016 and the very first hurdle for the team would be Ronald Koeman’s side, Everton.

It is obvious that a good start to the season will lift the team and that is what Pochettino will be aiming in the game, but Everton are no joke here. Yes, they had a tough time last season, but now they have Koeman, the Dutch gaffer, who has a great experience in bringing the best out of the players. With that being said, many questions are being raised and most importantly, it is a major doubt that can Tottenham challenge for the title next season?

Let us analyze from the beginning; Tottenham’s arch rivals Arsenal have so far signed Granit Xhaka and Takuma Asano, the other London club, i.e, Chelsea have signed Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante. The Manchester clubs are doing a great business as well and Liverpool have recently completed their fourth signing of the summer.

It is not a rocket science to understand that why the teams need new singings every year. Now, with Champions League to play for, Pochettino will have to strengthen his squad and adding some random faces won’t either. What he needs is experienced players, the players, who could guide the young and dynamic Tottenham squad.

We all saw how Dele Alli and harry Kane performed in the Euro 2016, and therefore, it is safe to say that mounting pressure on them next season won’t work at all. There is no doubt that Tottenham’s squad is a diamond, but that diamond needs a cutting edge and if they really tend to challenge for the title next season, they need to bring some senior figures.

After playing the midweek games, players will obviously suffer from fatigue in the Premier League fixtures, and that is one of those many reasons where Tottenham will struggle. It is very hard to comment on anything regarding the title race, because what we saw last season from Leicester was stunning, but this won’t happen every season. The title is not too far from the Lilly-Whites, but it is not too close either.
