How Tottenham Hotspur fared last season
Last campaign was full of positives for Mauricio Pochettino and Spurs.
A third place finish means they can look forward to Champions League football in their new home.
However, they did end the season once again without a trophy meaning it is now 11 seasons since they lifted silverware.
Due to the fact that the FA Cup semi final against Manchester United was taking place in their own stadium this was a great chance to make the final.
Despite taking the lead early through Dele Alli, goals from Alexis Sánchez and Ander Herrera mean the wait for a major honour goes on.
Will Spurs end the drought this season?
What’s changed at Tottenham Hotspur this summer
Not much has changed at Spurs so far this summer.
No signings have been made and no players have left the club either but expect lots of ins and outs before the window closes.
The futures of Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembélé all remain up in the air and Spurs are also listening to offers for Moussa Sissoko, Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen.
They have tied down many key players to new contracts. Dávinson Sánchez, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have all signed on the dotted line.
So has the manager too.
Spurs are maintaining what they’ve got but acquisitions are going to be needed if they’re to push on.
Spurs have been linked with Benjamin Pavard, Wilfried Zaha and Wilmar Barrios who would all be excellent acquisitions. Incomings depend on outgoings.
For example, if Alderweireld left then a centre back would arrive. It’s well known that Daniel Levy likes a late transfer but in this truncated window he might be cutting it very fine.
Tottenham Hotspur predictions for 2018/2019
Spurs have finished in the top 4 for 3 seasons running now. They are 8/11 on to do so again.
The last Spurs team to win the title was in 1961. This Spurs team are 14/1 to be crowned champions.
Last season’s Champions League campaign ended in heartache, losing 2-1 at home to Juventus to crash out. They are 20/1 to go all the way and be crowned European champions.
Spurs are 8 time FA Cup winners and they are 7/1 to add a ninth this season. They have also won the League Cup 4 times and are 15/2 to lift that again.
A successful season for Spurs would be retaining their top 4 status. But the longer the trophy drought goes on the more annoying it gets for Spurs and their fans.
It would be a fantastic achievement for them to finally lift silverware, could this be Tottenham’s year again?
