Having seen Harry Kane get back in the goals with a hat-trick away at AFC Bournemouth last weekend, our Tottenham supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling rather buoyant again.
Currently in sixth place in the Premier League, Spurs are in that oh so familiar Europa League territory at present but only three points off fourth-placed Manchester United with this season being particularly wide open.
Boasting much more of a tight-knit squad under Mauricio Pochettino this term, this of course has its benefits with several members of Spurs’ squad knowing they’ll be starting each week but if injuries end up striking Tottenham down, what’s left is only a few academy graduates such as Joshua Onomah and Harry Winks without little experience to their name.
So far this term, Spurs haven’t suffered a mass injury crisis yet and long may that continue for Lilywhites fans who will be hoping their team can put a consistent run together rather than simply bagging an eye-catching result against Manchester City, only to throw away this good work with a loss to a mediocre side.
But with January on the horizon, we wonder whether Pochettino will trim his squad to make room for potential new arrivals. With this in mind, we’ve devised a five-man list of Tottenham players who could be axed by the boss in the New Year.
