No future for attacking trio: Three things we learned about Tottenham in win v Hull
COMMENT By Harvey Byrne
Football Insider analyses the three talking points after Tottenham secured a 7-1 win against Hull on Sunday afternoon at the KCOM Stadium.
No future for Sissoko, N’Koudou or Janssen
Last summer Mauricio Pochettino made just four senior signings and of those three of them included Vincent Janssen, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Moussa Sissoko for a combined £56million. However, each of them have failed to make an impact in their debut season at the club and while many may have felt Pochettino may have given them a chance in a meaningless match like the one against the Tigers, he didn’t. It is clear that the attacking trio are not good enough for this highly impressive Tottenham team and that their time in north London is now limited.
Kane is world class
When people talk about the best strikers in the world they often forget about England’s Harry Kane and go for the more glamours names such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez and Robert Lewandowski. However, Kane’s goal record is phenomenal and with 29 goals in 30 Premier League appearances this season he can surely only be considered world class. At 23 the 17-time capped England international will only get better too and Tottenham fans should be very excited by his prospects.

Tottenham have corrected last season’s wrongs
You can see Tottenham have improved on last season simply by looking at their second placed league position and points total. However, in the final game of the last campaign they fell to a heavy 5-1 defeat at relegated outfit Newcastle at St James’ Park. However, Spurs did not suffer the same embarrassment this time around against relegated Hull at the KCOM Stadium. Little details like this are showing that Tottenham are always progressing and next season Spurs will have a real chance of claiming their first ever Premier League title.
