3 Players That Could Leave Tottenham On Transfer Deadline Day

While the main focus tomorrow on deadline day will be the players Tottenham will bring into the squad, here are three players that could follow Kevin Wimmer out the exit door on transfer deadline day. 

1) Vincent Janssen

The Dutchman didn’t enjoy the best of starts to life in the Premier League and with first team chances very few and far between for Janssen, he could seek a deadline day move away.

The striker has admitted he is unhappy with his situation at Spurs and wants more playing time under manager Mauricio Pochettino to try and prove his worth. However, if the prolific scoring of Harry Kane begins to kick in anytime soon, he chances might by hard to come by.

You get the feeling that what Janssen needs to succeed is a strong run of games, which can be hard to get when you are second choice to a striker like Harry Kane. With Janssen sitting frustrated on the bench and with many holding little confidence in him if Kane were to get injured, a move away might be best for both parties.

The Sun report that Stoke and West Brom have both shown an interest in Janssen. If a move goes through, could it trigger a last minute attempt to buy Divock Origi from Liverpool?

‘Best Player On The Park’ Spurs Fans Heap Praise Onto Defender Following Newcastle Win

Spurs got their Premier League campaign off to a winning start with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon. Goals from Dele Alli and Ben Davies were enough to see off the Magpies.

The first forty-five minutes were an uneventful affair with few chances for either side. Newcastle started the better but Spurs grew into the game, Christian Eriksen trying his luck from distance a couple of times but with little success.

The game changed early on in the second half when Andre Marriner sent off Newcastle captain Jonjo Shelvey for a stamp on Dele Alli. A stupid act right under the nose of the referee that saw him rightly sent for an early bath.

Spurs immediately looked to capitalise on their one man advantage and cashed in just after the hour mark. Christian Erisken floated a lovely ball over the top to Dele Alli, who made no mistake with a volleyed finish into the back of the net past Rob Elliot.

Just ten minutes later it was 2-0. A little bit of fortune involved perhaps, but Ben Davies reacted quickly to slide the ball past Elliot and to double Tottenham’s advantage, which they were able to hold onto right up until the final whistle.

Mauricio Pochettino faced a tough team selection at the start of the game. He appeared to be torn between playing a back three with Moussa Sissoko at wing-back or a back four with Kyle Walker-Peters at right-back. Both played in a 4-2-3-1 system and the youngster Walker-Peters impressed on his debut.

The full-back showed little signs of nerves, looked to pose a threat going forward and effectively dealt with the pace of Christian Atsu which even some of the best full-backs struggle to do when he is on the top of his game. His final ball could have been better and it is fair to say he doesn’t quite have the same pace as Kyle Walker or Kieran Trippier. His performance led to one Spurs fan claiming that there is now no need to sign a right-back this summer. Here is how Spurs fans reacted on Twitter.

Once fit, Kieran Trippier I am sure will stay the first choice right-back, but Kyle Walker-Peters may have just eliminated the need to buy a new right-back with the performance that earned him the Man of the Match award.
