Tottenham Hotspur have a squad which is capable of finishing at least fourth this season.
Tottenham Hotspur have endured a mixed start to the new Premier League season.
Spurs won their first two games but were brought quickly back down to earth with a bad defeat at home against Liverpool for the second season in a row.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team have already shown promise this season and with their strongest team available, they can give any of the rivals a good fight in the race for Champions League football.
We’ve attempted to name that side.
GK – Hugo Lloris
Arguably the best goalkeeper in the Premier League. Always looking for ways to lift the pressure from his back four.
RB – Eric Dier
Dier has been in great form since he joined the club from Sporting Lisbon. The Premier League doesn’t seem to bother him.
CB – Younes Kaboul
Kaboul creates an intimidating and experienced figure in the back four.
CB – Jan Vertonghen
Vertonghen is well suited to playing on the left hand side of central defence.
LB – Danny Rose
Pace and skill going forward, relatively solid in defence. His early season performances saw him called up to the current England side.
RM – Erik Lamela
He’s looked revitalised under the guidance of Pochettino.
CM – Etienne Capoue
Will most likely play the holding role for much of the season.
CM – Paulinho
Capable of running any game against any side when he’s on the very top of his game. A solid box-to-box player.
AM – Christian Eriksen
One of the best number tens in the league. He’s been consistent when used in a central position just behind the striker.
LM – Nacer Chadli
Seems to be the preferred option on the left for Pochettino and he’s done a decent job there.
ST – Emmanuel Adebayor
At the top of the pecking order compared with Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane.
