Tottenham will face a number of difficult tests ahead of the new Premier League season and Mauricio Pochettino will need his young and hungry squad firing on all cylinders.
Here, Football Insider analyses which three Spurs players will be key to their success ahead of the new campaign.
Harry Kane – The England international is the obvious choice given his goal threat and ability to find the back of the net with ease. First and foremost, supporters will be hoping he remains injury free throughout the season because there is no doubt that he has the capabilities of hitting the 30 goal mark.
Toby Alderweireld – The best defender in the Premier League, Alderweireld provides a lot of qualities from the back for his club. His ability to read the game, sense danger early and distribution out from the back, is the reason why Spurs recorded the best defence last term. Doing that again, added with Kane’s goals, will surely, at the very least, result in a runners-up spot.
Son Heung-Min – A much-improved player during the recently concluded campaign, who really stood up when his team needed him most. When Kane was injured, Son delivered the goals and match-winning performances. If key attacking players get injured or Son needs to come off the bench, his performances could be crucial to the club picking up those valuable points.
