Tottenham's summer transfer business has strengthened their squad considerably.

Tottenham ended up signing five players during the recently closed transfer window - Davinson Sánchez, Serge Aurier, Fernando Llorente, Juan Foyth, and Paulo Gazzaniga. Although they might not be the biggest names in football, the nature of the signings makes Tottenham's second choice team much stronger than last season. 

Tottenham are expected to put up a good fight for the Premier League title this season - and make a good fist of it in the Champions League this season. And manager Mauricio Pochettino will want to get his side used to winning things, so Tottenham's performances in the FA Cup and the EFL Cup will also be important for the club.

As most of the big teams do, Spurs have enabled Mauricio Pochettino with a strong the squad which could compete for 60 games (if needed). The former Southampton manager can rotate his squad without having to lose too much quality from game to game. 

Tottenham have been relatively lucky with injuries to their most important players in the past two seasons, except Eric Lamela, who has had a nightmare with injuries. 

Serge Aurier will probably be first choice after his transfer, restoring Kieran Tripper to second choice. New centre back signings Juan Foyth and Devinson Sanchez will most likely be behind the Belgian duo of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld. Sadly for Paulo Gazzaniga, he looks to be behind Michel Vorm. 

Damningly for Vincent Janssen he doesn't get into the second choice eleven as well. Here's how the eleven looks on paper :-
