Mauricio Pochettino's side were perhaps the most exciting team in the Premier League last term and for large spells of the campaign looked very capable of winning their first top-flight league title in 55 long years.
However, the wheels came off Tottenham's title bid in spectacular fashion as Pochettino's troops won just two points out of a possible 12 in the last four games - a dreadful run of form which allowed North London rivals Arsenal pip them to second place on the final day.
But having battled champions Leicester City for so long, and achieved qualification into the Champions League, it could and should be classed as a successful season for the Lilywhites regardless of their end-of-season woes.
It will almost certainly be tougher to mount a title bid next term as Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte take control of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea respectively, while Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool surely be better than last term.
Asked by Tottenham's official site if another "memorable season" awaits Pochettino and co, Spurs' second-choice stopper responded. "Yes, that’s what we’re looking for. Obviously not everyone is back yet because of the internationals but in the next few weeks we’ll be working to improve ourselves again.
"The way we want to play is there but we want to expand that and now Vincent and Victor Wanyama are here, they need to get used to the way we do things as well so this period is going to be good for us. We’re only getting stronger and in the next few weeks you’ll see that we’re very hungry, strong and ready to compete.”
