Spurs ground out an excellent win in midweek at Borussia Dortmund to further cement their place as a force to be reckoned with in Europe this season, and they will be hoping to continue that form against West Brom this weekend.
With Harry Kane and Dele Alli both beginning to get into their stride and back to their brilliant best, Spurs should be dominant this weekend and will be confident of picking up plenty of points over the Christmas period with a favourable run of fixtures.
Our landlord here at the Tavern has been impressed with the form of Pochettino’s men, but he still thinks the club could do with some more depth to the squad, and in particular, in the midfield areas.
One man he thinks could come to Wembley and do an excellent job for Spurs is current Monaco midfielder Joao Moutinho.
The little Portuguese playmaker was brilliant for his country as they secured the Euro’s 18 months or so ago now, and his form for Monaco has been excellent over the course of a fair few seasons now.
Classy and skilful with the ball at his feet, Moutinho is the sort of player who can slot in anywhere in central midfield, either playing as an attacking force, or sitting deep and keeping the game ticking over for his teammates in a controlled manner.
He would be a superb signing for Spurs and Pochettino, and with the club mounting a European charge, would be perfect for the club going forward over the next few seasons.
Spurs fans, what do you think to Moutinho? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
