Tottenham's growth on and off the pitch is starting to turn some heads.

Tottenham Hotspur are coming off the back of a remarkable 3-1 victory over London rivals Chelsea, and as they look ahead to the future, there’s a strong case to be made that the sky is the limit for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

In the Argentine, they’ve got a strong figure to lead them forward into the future, and despite being in the job for almost four years now, the 46-year-old still feels like he’s just getting started. He has a down to earth mentality combined with a passion for the game that is unrivalled among most major European sides, and the improvements Spurs showed in the Champions League this year were there for everyone to see.

Sure, they crashed out to Juventus, but the experience they gained from pushing the Italian giants all the way will serve them well in the next few years and beyond. Plus, and this cannot be understated in terms of importance, finishing above Arsenal and defeating their bitter rivals just isn’t a surprise anymore.

We’re at a stage where the tides are definitely turning in North London, and with the last few weeks of the season beckoning, Spurs look set to comfortably secure a place in the top four.

Of course, that pales in comparison to the actual statistics, with the club themselves announcing a record £306.3 million in revenues for the year ending June 2017. That, in itself, is an astronomical figure, and their stadium move in the next few months is only going to increase the stature and notability of Tottenham Hotspur as an elite football club in English football.

The money is being made available to increase the wages of their big stars, and beyond that, the allure of playing for Spurs is only going to continue to grow. They have ties with the NFL, a young squad full of English talent, and a fanbase who are ready for more.

Tottenham are on the rise, and things seem to be going from strength to strength.
