It’s been a consistent season from Tottenham and certainly one that has seen them surpass the expectations. Overall it’s not been great though, the disappointment in Europe was particularly poor – but there’s still time for this to be one of the clubs best in their history.
We caught up with Jonathan Lewis, spurs fan and tipster at FootballPredictions.com. According to Jonathan: “Tottenham face a massively tough task if they want to dethrone Chelsea from the top of the Premier League, but they do have to ensure that they finish the season as runners-up, and get to the final of the FA Cup, anything less would, in my opinion, make the season a poor one”
Tottenham are one club playing without pressure, surpassing expectations in their current league position, whilst the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal continue to underperform each week.
What Tottenham need to do is to show that they aren’t serial bottlers and they only way they can do that is by finishing the season strong. If the club manage to win the FA Cup and finish 2nd in the league, the whole of Europe will take notice.
Tottenham have to ensure they go into the summer looking like a top European club. They need to make better signings than they have previously to help take the team to the next level – and the club will only attract world class players if they achieve something significant. Tottenham do not have the history of clubs like Manchester United to fall back on in transfer dealings. Tottenham also need to ensure star players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli want to stay at the club, with interest from the likes of Real Madrid being reported.
But the most important thing for Tottenham to do this summer is to keep Mauricio Pochettino at the club. The manager has done wonders with his team and is a tactical genius. With the likes of Barcelona on the hunt for a new manager, Pochettino could well be on the wishlist of some top clubs this summer and if Spurs lose him, they’d lose all the momentum the club has built up over the last few years.
