Paul Merson predicts where Tottenham will finish this season

Rivals Chelsea won the Premier League and Chelsea the FA Cup, and so Tottenham announcing yesterday that they will be releasing a DVD of last season's efforts prompted reason for opposition fans to have a dig.

Danny Rose's injury has opened the door for the Welsh left-back and Davies said: "Me and Kieran are definitely quite similar".

The dig is that Tottenham are over-celebrating falling short, when they should be more upset in the old adage "second is nowhere". Cartilage Free Captain has a great look at these depth issues and when they're parsed out in text in front of you, the situation really does become astonishing for a club of Tottenham's type.

"We will try now before the end of the transfer window to make everything happen and for us to get the targets and players we want to bring in here".

"It's a game that's kind of been wiped from our minds and it's going to be us going there looking to be better than them".

Pochettino said Spurs would make signings before the August 31 transfer deadline but warned: "It's not an easy job".

Spurs didn't suffer many long-term injuries last season.


The North London side are in the market for a right-back following Kyle Walker's big-money move to Manchester City, with Spurs not making a first-team signing yet this summer.

They're not. It's been proved the last two years.

Ideally, for a team that is competing on as many fronts as Spurs are, one would like to have two players in every position that they can rely on, but that could hardly be said for Pochettino's available roster.

It would be a surprise if Tottenham didn't make a single signing this summer, as it could slow down their progression under Pochettino. Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen were both excellent last season.

Spurs will play all their home games at the national stadium this term while the construction of their new stadium, which replaces White Hart Lane, is completed. Last year, they drew two of their three opening games and ended up finishing seven points behind winners Chelsea.

The quality of the opposition was good in nearly all of those matches, but Tottenham did seem like a fish out of water in the unfamiliar surroundings.
