Danny Higginbotham believes that Tottenham will be hurting after they failed to win any silverware this season.

Spurs produced yet another positive campaign under Mauricio Pochettino and battled Chelsea for the Premier League title, before eventually finishing second and qualifying for next year’s Champions League.

The north London club have a brilliant young squad at their disposal, with England stars Dele Alli and Harry Kane regarded as two of the best players in the division.

However, Pochettino’s side once again failed to pick up any silverware and that is the one of the major grey areas over them.

They managed to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup, but were beaten 4-2 at Wembley by rivals Chelsea.

Sky Sports pundit Higginbotham highlighted the quality of the Spurs side, but feels they will be upset after not winning a trophy,

“Spurs play great stuff but they do not have any medals to show for it — that will hurt,” Higginbotham wrote in the Sun.

Spurs are expected to be in the running once again next season and will have to adapt quickly to their temporary move to the Wembley Stadium.

Their biggest battle in the transfer window is expected to be keeping hold of their star players, with their quality attracting several suitors.

They will need to start winning silverware if they are to keep their key figures and the club are now trying to establish themselves at the top-end of the table.

Spurs have not won a piece of silverware since the League Cup in 2008, but there is a real belief that the current squad is the best in years.
