The fight for the Premier League is more exciting than ever. After eight days played, the Leicester is in first position, and the Aston Villa sixth, with one game less, closing the European positions, just three points behind. The Everton who was the leader after the break, is now seventh, five points behind the leader.
The first team of the Big Six is Tottenham of Jose Mourinho, which is second just one point behind Leicester, and tied with the Liverpool which is third. The Portuguese coach’s team did not enter the pools for winning the Premier League, and right now it’s the first component of the Big Six after six days.
After a bad season, in which the cycle ended in the Spurs from Mauricio Pochettino in the least predictable way possible, it arrived Mourinho to take his place precisely in the October national team break after the draw at home against the Sheffield United.
Despite the impetus that the arrival of Mourinho to the team, achieving that first victory against the West Ham away from home and establish a series of good results that brought them closer to the top positions, the team began to fall again, showing very irregular until the end of the season, and having to settle for that sixth position that it snatched from the Wolves on the last day.
After this terrible season, the Tottenham went to the market in search of players who could strengthen the team. After the departure of Eriksen in the winter market, it was necessary to strengthen the midfield, and for this they brought the Danish Hojbjerg of the Southampton, in a fairly profitable operation for Spurs in which they put the side Walker-Peters.
Given the weakness shown on the sides, the Tottenham signed the irish Matt Doherty from Wolves, to compete for the position with Serge Aurier. On the other hand, Daniel Levy I would take advantage of the situation of Sergio Reguilon, to bring him to London and take a great leap in quality on that left-back, who had limped so much last season.
Taking advantage of the great relationship with him Real Madrid, Daniel Levy He wanted to knock on the table bringing back what was his great star Gareth Bale, which has always been liked by Mourinho, and from which it is expected that with the help of the Portuguese coach and the return to a league like the Premier League that enhances its great virtues, from a tremendous quality jump to the attack of some Spurs, which has one of the best tridents in Europe and of course the Premier League.
Another Welshman who arrived at the market close was the young Joe Rodon, from Swansea, and that comes to replace a Jan Vertonghen, who went free to Benfica, and that ends an eight-year stage with the Spurs.
Finally, the Tottenham finally signed an alternate of guarantees for Harry Kane with the arrival of the Brazilian Carlos Vinicius, who comes from leaving at Benfica where he has achieved a total of 18 goals in the last season.
Closed the chapter of transfers, Mourinho manages to form a great team in which perhaps a renowned center-back would be missing accompanying Alderweireld, with two wingers who really like to join the attack and who will give depth to the team, a great goalkeeper with experience as Hugo Lloris, a very physical midfield with a lot of work, and a lethal trident that can compete with anyone.
In the last match against West Brom there was even four new faces compared to last season in the starting eleven. Except for some nuances throughout the season such as the entrance of Aurier by Doherty, the of The Celso by Ndombele or the entrance of Harry Winks in the double pivot, standing as the eleven type of Mourinho. However, for the project to take hold, the key will be the following players.
The English striker has returned to a very high level, achieving a total of seven goals and eight assists in these first eight games, that is, he participated in 15 of the 19 goals directly from the Tottenham in the 8 days of Premier League.
After a difficult year in which injuries hampered their performance, the team lowered their level a lot and very soon fell from the top positions. Despite the arrival of a great striker like Carlos Vinicius, what Kane this healthy will be key to the future of the Spurs this season, as he makes the entire offense of the Tottenham, and when he and Son get together Mourinho seems unstoppable.
Korean is another key to Tottenham, since he is that special player who can win you a game by himself. When he is not Kane, Son He has shown that his pulse does not tremble, and he throws the team on his back when the English forward is absent.
His verticality in attack, his speed and his great handling of both legs, with which he is capable of generating an occasion at any time, make Son one of the best players in the Premier League and one of the best in the world in his position.
This season he has eight goals and two assists, leading the scorers table, highlighting that match against the Southampton in which he won a poker game against one of the best teams in the Premier League at this beginning of the season.
Like what was said with Harry Kane, what Son this fresh in the key games, it will be very important to aspire to great things this season.
The French midfielder seems to have loosened his differences with Mourinho, and after starting as a substitute the season he has taken a place in the starting eleven after the great cup match against Chelsea.
Ndombele came as the great signing of Tottenham last season, and to date he had failed to measure up. However, recovering that Tanguy Ndombele of the Lyon for the cause, it will be key to the schemes of Mourinho, since despite being a physical midfielder with great travel as SissokoHe has that technique when it comes to moving and that pass that his French compatriot does not have.
The Welsh winger arrives at what was his home, after some very poor seasons in which he has been involved in controversy, and that added to the injuries have not allowed him to shine in the Real Madrid.
Now go back to the Premier League, a physical league that enhances the qualities of a Bale that he is happy again in London, and that he hopes to recover his best level from the hand of a Mourinho who asked for it on several occasions when he was a technician Manchester United.
If successful, the trident formed by Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane Y Gareth Bale in physical fullness, it would be one of the most powerful in Europe, capable of sentencing any rival, and with which fans of the Spurs they can dream about everything.
The French goalkeeper is another of the great names to take into account in this team, after a very complicated season in which he could only play half of the games.
Hugo Lloris He is undoubtedly one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League. Having him in goal is life insurance, since he has shown since he arrived that he gives points when the team goes through bad times, and that in important matches he makes a difference as seen in the Champions League in which Tottenham reached the final, or the world what took France.
Having a guaranteed goalkeeper is key for a team that wants to aspire to something like Tottenham.
Great team from Tottenham for this season, which must take advantage of the large number of absences in defense of a Liverpool who will have to hold out until the winter market, and a Manchester City that has once again generated many doubts at the beginning of the season. Therefore, this may be the year of a Tottenham that from the hand of Mourinho he hopes to finally win the long-awaited Premier League.
