Alan Hutton believes Tottenham Hotspur benefitted from Premier League suspension
Football was suspended across the country on March 13. prior to that, Tottenham were in the midst of a horrible run of results. Not only was the club on a six-match winless run, but they also exiting the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League.
With Moussa Sissoko and Steven Bergwijn also sidelined Tanguy Ndombele’s loss of form led to tension with Jose Mourinho. With the light at the end of the tunnel looking dim, things would have gotten much worse before it improved.
The suspension of football could not have come at a better time. Hutton believes the break gave Mourinho the time to get things back on track.
“It looks like with all these players back, Mourinho’s going to have a headache, a good headache, of who to pick.”
All the Spurs players who were injured are not back in training. This presents a welcome dilemma for Mourinho with a plethora of options at his disposal.
“It’s given them that little bit of time, that little bit of breathing space to get these players back.”
Spurs are currently in 8th place. We trail 4th-placed Chelsea by seven points. With matches against the likes of Manchester United and Sheffield United still to go, Spurs have a very good shot of challenging for the top four.
With our key players back, it is a task that now appears less daunting.
