Tottenham suffered a blow in their bid to reach the top four this afternoon, going down to a 3-0 defeat to Manchester United.
Spurs went into the game on the back of consecutive Premier League victories, and having won on their last two visits to Old Trafford.
But the game was over inside the first 45 minutes this afternoon, with United racing into a 3-0 lead thanks to goals from Maraoune Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney.
The result leaves Tottenham six points behind United in the race for that final Champions League spot, and has left Pochettino’s side with an uphill battle for the remaining nine matches of the season.
There have been signs of improvement under the Argentine coach this season, but the general feeling around White Hart Lane is that Tottenham have been too reliant on both Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane this term, and will need reinforcements in the summer if they are to make it back amongst Europe’s elite.
Here we have identified five signings they should look to make when the transfer window opens once again.
