Pochettino reveals Spurs to make up to four additions

Pochettino reveals Spurs to make up to four additions

There is little doubt that Spurs' Wembley record will improve the more they become accustomed to the stadium, but it is hard to see them boasting form at home that even remotely resembles that from last season. Subsequently reporting back on time for pre-season with the North Londoners for the first time in two seasons.

Last season in the league, Tottenham scored the most (86) and conceded the least (26).

Whilst Spurs will be keen to banish the ghost of that fateful afternoon in May, their recent record against Newcastle - three defeats in five games - shows that history is not on Tottenham's side.

TOTTENHAM right back Kieran Trippier left Wembley on crutches on Saturday night, leaving Spurs fans questioning why they didn't replace Kyle Walker. The manager has engendered a strong degree of loyalty from his players, although the departure of Walker is a reminder that personal ambition - and indeed the promise of a hefty pay rise - can lure anybody away.

"Spurs are lucky, they have it for their home". First, Trippier, 26, wants to ensure Tottenham see the sale of Walker as money well banked; second, Trippier eyes the England right-back position, now Walker's domain.

They are experiencing a 56-year Premier League title drough - with their last English First Division triumph coming in 1960-61.

Could Anthony Georgiou have a part to play for Spurs this season?

It must be kept in mind that Spurs will also be competing in the UEFA Champions League this season, and while their starting XI is one of the best in the Premier League, their squad depth is fairly questionable.

We still don't really know who the players are that Pochettino is targeting, aside from Ross Barkley, but nobody should be surprised if Spurs are extremely active even on the last days and hours of the window. Otherwise, Pochettino's squad remains in tact. The lack of suitable alternatives was brutally exposed in Spurs' emphatic 3-0 defeat to Manchester City when Pep Guardiola was able to call upon the likes of Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Leroy Sane from his bench.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has assured fans that the club will sign up to four players before the end of the transfer window.

There are a few reasons why that will be hard and their current position in the pre-season odds reflect that the general mood in the game is that Spurs will struggle to challenge at the top end of the division again this season.

The circus of Watford manager goes in as they bring in their third manager in as many seasons, time will tell if he can last longer than a season.

That he played even less than Clinton N'Jie the season before is a rather damning indictment. Livermore is a skilful player with vision and ability to match which makes him a very important player to his club. They still don't look comfortable at the tail end of the season where they tend to maybe burn out or maybe the manager's impending exit leads to a run of poor form.

Speculation intensified further when it was confirmed that Sissoko's absence was due to a virus, the classic excuse tagged onto players expected to leave a club.

TOTTENHAM are reportedly hoping to make Valencia right-back Joao Cancelo their first signing - but face stiff competition from Juventus.
