Wenger doubts Tottenham can fill Wembley this season

The injury crisis at right back might mean both Kevin Wimmer and Moussa Sissoko, who looked nailed on for the exit door, have to play key roles not only against Newcastle, but potentially against Chelsea at Wembley. 86 points is what they claimed, and that sort of figure has been known to be a league winning one. The number stands at zero.

Newcastle, meanwhile, head into the clash with manager Rafael Benitez having vowed to battle through his transfer window frustration to tackle life in the top flight head on. What they must do though, is add a little depth before September.

Tottenham will most likely move into their new ground, which is being built adjacent to where their old home White Hart Lane was situated, for the start of the 2018-'19 campaign.

Kane came close to punishing more sloppy play from last season's Champions League runners-up when he smashed a shot against the crossbar, but Trippier's injury overshadowed Tottenham's confident performance.

The 'Wembley curse" may well be overcome soon enough, it'll have to be - but concerns are that poor early season "home' form could dent their campaign.

Spurs are as good as anybody in the league and against a Newcastle side, who will have to attack in front of their own fans, this could be a cricket score.


Their Champions League record was no better in the same period, as they failed to make it past the second round in the first two years and crashed out at the group stage in the third.

He continued: "Right now, Harry Kane is one year away from being worth that, if already not being worth that". We made 314 interceptions last season in the league, the least for any side in the competition.

Dele Alli will hope to get into double figures for goals and assists, whilst the defence will play a huge part again.

If Tottenham were to add the three players named above, their squad would have additions, but it would be hard to say whether they are better than they were a season ago, even if a young academy player or two plays above their heads.

On top of those absences, Spurs face starting the season without right-back Kieran Trippier, who injured his ankle against Juventus and is set to sit out two weeks of action this month. That's big. Keeping the band together is probably the single most important thing they can do to keep their positive momentum.

Club's that finished below them past year have strengthened. But if I get to a stage where I am still fit and feel like I can do a job, I'd love to.
