There's the complicity and understanding in the interplay of Dele Alli and Harry Kane, something the national team manager Gareth Southgate wants to build on, while another good season for Danny Rose at left-back should cement his status as his country's first-choice. The club is focused around a core of young, inexpensive, and extremely talented players, and there's a great deal of optimism about the Tottenham's overall direction.

During the 2015/16 season, Spurs finished 3rd and they went one better during the last campaign. Cancelo is flexible in his position and the right footer can play anywhere along the righthand side of the pitch.

Rafa Benitez has not lost any of his previous eight Premier League home games as a manager against Spurs (W5 D3 L0).

"It's a big challenge for us", the Argentine told TalkSport on Wednesday.

He continued: "Right now, Harry Kane is one year away from being worth that, if already not being worth that". A lot of Spurs fans aren't happy about this, especially considering Everton have been holding out for a ludicrous £50m fee, and because Ross Barkley is. well, Ross Barkley.

Five People Die After Using Weight Loss Balloons for Obesity
Intragastric balloons are created to treat obesity by taking up room in the stomach, making patients feel full. These are spontaneous overinflation, with liquid or gas, of the devices and acute pancreatitis.

As in 2015, when he was Bournemouth's talisman during their promotion-winning campaign, Ritchie was Newcastle's most influential player last term, scoring 12 times and providing a further seven assists as they won the title. Spurs are flexible in that they have two formations that are very effective in the Premier League and they will switch between them as the season progresses. Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko are also thought to be options, though the latter would have to be used in more of a 3-4-3 formation, something which Spurs used frequently last season. He was injured at the start of the season and Tottenham made a slow start. We want to play in this competition every year'.

Tottenham's quest to go one better than in 2016-17 and finally lift the Premier League title begins on Sunday with a tough test away to newly-promoted Newcastle United.

Tottenham fans can certainly expect another season of fast, exciting, slick football under the team that Pochettino has fostered and kept together despite attractive offers for many players.

Spurs may not have Cristiano Ronaldo or Sir Alex Ferguson, but there is plenty about them to suggest that for them too, less is definitely more. A couple of signings would have injected the impetus that they need to push on for a title challenge and it will be interesting to see whether they are active in the market before the end of the month.
