Tottenham Hotspur are a football club based in North London, and they have been in the Premier League for every year of its existence. The club was formed in 1882 and originally called Hotspur FC. They played their matches at White Hart Lane up until 2017, but then left as it was redeveloped into a new stadium which holds 62,000 fans called the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It opened last season, after Spurs played all of their home games at Wembley last season. They also played there in the Champions League in 2016/17.
There are many notable players and managers in Spurs’ history. The likes of Glenn Hoddle, Ricky Villa and Ossie Ardiles lit up the 70s and 80s, while Jurgen Klinsmann, David Ginola and Les Ferdinand were crucial to their success in the 1990s. Harry Redknapp inspired them to their first qualification for the Champions League in 2010/11, with Luka Modric and Gareth Bale playing crucial roles in that team before later moving to Real Madrid in 2012 and 2013 respectively. Harry Kane has become the main man at Spurs, and with him in the side, they have a chance of going far under Pochettino.
Jimmy Greaves remains Tottenham’s all time top goalscorer with 266 goals in 379 games between 1961 and 1970, but Kane looks certain to overtake that after signing a new long-term contract this summer.
Goalkeepers: Hugo Lloris, Paulo Gazzaniga
Defenders: Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Juan Foyth, Serge Aurier, Ben Davies, Kyle Walker-Peters
Midfielders: Erik Lamela, Victor Wanyama, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, Harry Winks, Christian Eriksen, Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon
Forwards: Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane
Tottenham Hotspur have reached something of a crossroads this season. Though they have broken their transfer record to sign midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon this summer, breaking an 18-month wait to sign anyone in the process, it is tough to see them going to the next level in the Premier League title race. Mauricio Pochettino will be aiming for a real challenge if he can this season, but the fact of the matter is they don’t have the squad depth or resources to compete with Manchester City or Liverpool in the long run. Making their new home a fortress in their first full season there will be the most important thing early on, but they’ll also hope to take the momentum that saw them reach the Champions League final last season, which they eventually lost to Liverpool.
