With a young squad led by a forward-thinking manager, playing energetic and entertaining football, Tottenham Hotspur is one of the Premier League’s most exciting teams.
Since taking charge in May 2014, Mauricio Pochettino has transformed Spurs from perennial underachiever to Champions League regular. The north London side even upset the odds to beat Real Madrid in the group stage of Europe’s premier club competition in 2017/18, before narrowly losing to Italian champions Juventus.
Having taken up temporary residence at Wembley Stadium for the past year, Spurs will move into its new, rebuilt White Hart Lane home stadium for 2018/19. Pochettino will be hopeful of marking the occasion with a push for a league title.
England international striker Kane is unquestionably Tottenham’s most important player. He’s the focal point of the team’s attack, its highest scorer for four years running, and no Premier League player could match his average of 5.6 shots per game in 2017/18.
An all-round center-forward, Kane has changed his approach in the last 12 months, focussing more on finding a high-volume of scoring opportunities, serviced magnificently by the Spurs midfield and wings.
Tottenham will be determined to ensure Kane remains the club’s posterboy as it moves into its new stadium.
Whether 4-2-3-1 or 3-4-3, Tottenham’s philosophy remains consistent: press the opposition high up the pitch, force turnovers and slice through teams in dynamic fashion.
With the full-backs breaking forward to provide the side with its width in the attacking phase, Spurs is able to draw its midfielders in tight, dominating the central zone and utilizing the creative gifts of Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen to conjure scoring chances for the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
Tottenham is also an incredibly well-balanced team, proficient defensively – only champions Manchester City (6.3) and Liverpool (7.4) faced fewer shots per game than Spurs (8.9) in the 2017/18 Premier League – fast and decisive in transition and electrifying in attack.
The Premier League has confirmed that the 2018-19 season will get under way on Saturday August 11.
Fixtures were confirmed on June 14 and Tottenham must travel north to face Newcastle United at St James’ Park in their opening game of the campaign.
