Champions League finalists from the last season, Tottenham Hotspur are our number three favorites to lift the 2019-20 Premier League title.

The Spurs have usually been at the top in the past four or five years, but always missed that final step for a historic success. However, we have this feeling that it might finally be their year.

Ins and outs

The most important thing for Mauricio Pochettino should be the fact that he has kept all of his vital players before the start of the upcoming 2019-20 campaign.

Christian Eriksen stayed, Toby Alderweireld stayed, Harry Kane isn’t even thinking about going, with Kieran Trippier being the only big name which left the Spurs and joined Atletico Madrid earlier this summer.

Another important thing is the fact that Daniel Levy is finally ready to invest in the squad. Tanguy Ndombele joined Tottenham for a club-record £55 million transfer fee, while the additions of Giovani Lo Celso on loan and Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham only completed Pochettino’s side which was full of quality even without them.

Most important players

Tottenham Hotspur have two world-class players in their squad – Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen. Both of them can change the course of the game with only one move and both of them are the core of Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

However, we cannot underestimate the importance of Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and the new signings, all of them players who are capable of taking matters in their own hands if Kane or Eriksen are not at their best level.

Our prediction

As we said earlier in the article, we have the feeling that this might be Tottenham Hotspur’s year. They will definitely finish in Top 4, but why not challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title?
