Spurs have been continuing their top form this season with respectable draws at Everton and against Leicester in the FA Cup. Pochettino has hinted that he may not be looking to bring in any players this transfer window and is therefore satisfied that his squad will be able to go the distance in the league, cup and in Europe. Fans may raise eyebrows for it looks clear that Spurs need another striker to ease the burden placed upon Harry Kane but, Pochettino is the manager to have put Spurs in this great position and it is only right that we put our trust in him.Embed from Getty Images
Hatred of Losses
Spurs have an apparent hate towards losing, only losing 2 games in the league all season and 4 in all competitions (against Arsenal in the League Cup and Anderlecht in the Europa League). It is only the fourth time in the clubs history that they have only lost as few matches at this stage in the season. The last time they managed this feat in the top division was in 1961, the incredible double year and, maybe, we could see a repeat in 2016. Spurs have a tricky tie away at Leicester in the Third Round replay in the FA Cup and if they can manage to sneak past this one, an away tie awaits at Colchester which, with all due respect to Colchester, Spurs would be favourites if they managed to reach this stage.
However, if the fans want to see a double repeat, the team needs more wins in the league. Spurs have been the king of draws in the league so far, drawing as many as they have won. More wins need to come back to the Lane in the remaining part of this season.
A Young Squad
Tottenham currently have fielded the youngest squad in the league thus far this season in the league with an average age of 24 years, 304 days. A complete reshuffle and mass exodus in the summer have been the main two reasons Spurs are playing a much younger squad under Pochettino. Roy Hodgson has been looking to emulate Pochettino’s young squad in his England national team, a complete reverse of Fabio Capello who took the oldest England team to a World Cup in 2010.
This young squad has been epitomised by the superb Dele Alli who has recently signed a new contract extension, meaning he will be playing in North London until the year 2021. Alli has been on top form all season and will be wanting top score again against Leicester this season after grabbing his first away at the King Power Stadium back in August. Alli has scored three and set up another three in his last seven appearances for Spurs, proving he is a creator of goals not just a scorer.
Harry Kane a Spur Forever
Dele Alli’s effort is a complete imitation of Harry Kane’s work rate – tireless and willing throughout the game to leap onto stray passes and chase after lost causes. When not on a goal scoring run, Spurs fans can rest in the security of the knowledge that Kane works just as well off the ball as he does with it. Recently scoring his 50th goal for the club, the Spurs player has rubbished reports suggesting a move to Real Madrid awaits by stating that he wants to remain at Spurs due to their bright future under Pochettino. Kane has run the most by a striker in the Premier League this season, and is 7th overall, with 133 miles to his name already.
