Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen were given their first taste of White Hart Lane as Tottenham Hotspur players on Saturday.

The duo made their home debuts in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, in which midfielder Wanyama, who joined from Southampton this summer, planted home an 83rd-minute header which proved the difference between both sides in the end.

Janssen, a £17 million signing from AZ Alkmaar, spearheaded the attack to good effect as Harry Kane took up a slightly deeper role in the absence of number 10 Dele Alli.

The Dutch hitman was not on the scoresheet, but it was a very decent performance nonetheless, and ex-Spurs man Graham Roberts saluted the duo on Twitter for their respective displays - as well as centre-back Toby Alderweireld.

There is work to be done if Tottenham want to challenge England's elite for the Premier League title, but the early signs are promising.

Is two signings enough to help them kick on from last season, though? In a word, no. Mauricio Pochettino will need to use the final 10 days in the transfer window to maximum effect.

Wanyama and Janssen certainly add something, but on the whole it seems unlikely that Tottenham  have a good enough squad to challenge and beat the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City to the title.
