Tottenham boss reveals major fear ahead of title challenge

This is a real concern amongst the Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…

Tottenham have made an impressive start to the Premier League so far, with Spurs currently sitting in second place in the Premier League.

Pochettino’s men have continued their fine form from last season, and the Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are backing their side for a title challenge this season.

Things have certainly been going for Mauricio Pochettino, but the Argentine boss has revealed that his side can only challenge for the title this year if they control one key element.

Speaking ahead of Tottenham’s clash against West Brom, Pochettino has spoken (via the Daily Mail) about his fear of a Tottenham burn-out this season, with fixtures coming thick and fast.

He said: “If you play one game every week…West Brom and then after seven days…Bournemouth, it is not a big issue. The problem is how you manage [playing in] Germany, Bournemouth, Liverpool.

Pochettino continued: “You always need a few days to settle and put it all together”

He added: “It is very difficult”.

This is a very real problem for all of the top sides in the Premier League, and our landlord thinks Tottenham are at risk in particular. They only have a small side, and Pochettino is generally reliant on a small squad of players.

As seen with the loss of Harry Kane, Spurs must do a lot of work to replace a key man should he miss out for an extended period of time.

The Tottenham fans are less fearful. They saw how well Tottenham coped last season – and they have continued their fine form this year.

Our landlord has implored them to remember the final few games of last season, though, with Spurs faltering towards the end of the year after a tough run of games – costing them a title challenge.

It will no doubt be a tough season for Pochettino, and it is only just getting started…
