Newcastle vs Tottenham: 25/1 Betting Odds on Spurs

PSG star Dani Alves

With a collection of world class players such as Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli, the wage structure - in Jenas' belief - makes other clubs more attractive as they can pay twice the amounts in some cases that Spurs are prepared to pay.

Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino have improved dramatically over the past two campaigns, going from potential top four contenders to legitimate title contenders, though without any silverware to show for it.

During the 2015/16 season, Spurs finished 3rd and they went one better during the last campaign. We need some silver ware! Pochettino will argue that he already has a great group of players available to him and it would be hard to improve any one position. This weekend's opener will yield some early clues about their Premier League pedigree. Recently, Spurs looked at Hoffenheim's Jeremy Toljan, a right back who would start as deputy to Kieran Trippier.

Harry Kane is one goal away from a century for Spurs in all competitions - he has netted 99 goals in 165 games so far, including hat-tricks in his two previous appearances.

Tottenham have been linked with a move for the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Ross Barkley and Jeremy Toljan but such deals have to yet to materialise. A few clunkers at "home" next season could force Spurs off the rails.

Suggestions that they'll simply fall out of the top four are premature, if anything the Lilywhites are more likely to go up in the table. Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko are also thought to be options, though the latter would have to be used in more of a 3-4-3 formation, something which Spurs used frequently last season. There is merit in suggested Chelsea's small squad of last season needs new recruits to cope with the additional European fixtures; while if you have have a squad packed with 30-somethings, no matter how talented, it's probably time to start your churn.

Recent tests of the missiles have drawn worldwide condemnation and led to fresh United Nations sanctions against North Korea. He added that he does not believe there is "any imminent threat" from North Korea.

Spurs get their season underway against newly-promoted Newcastle United at St James' Park on Sunday with dropped points adding to fans' calls to spend on new signings.

'But now I think we have ahead a big challenge because it's not only to fight with the big clubs but another thing is to try to make home, Wembley.

However, he would still want to at least match the £50million fee they received for Kyle Walker from Manchester City.

The Gunners will be desperately hoping to bounce back to form in the top flight after the disappointment of their fifth-placed finish last term.

As Smith puts it: "Maybe part of the problem there is because the Premier League teams have so much churn every year, whereas in Europe it's less pronounced ..."
