Tottenham fans livid after Danny Rose comments - best tweets here

If he is able to stay fit and score goals at a rate similar to that of last the campaign, Spurs will feel a lot more confident about their title chances.

Tottenham fans can certainly expect another season of fast, exciting, slick football under the team that Pochettino has fostered and kept together despite attractive offers for many players.

It was a twist of fate involving the misfiring Roberto Soldado that gave Harry Kane the opportunity to become Tottenham's first choice striker back in 2014 - and after taking that opportunity with both hands, the Englishman has never looked back.

According to The Sun, chairman Daniel Levy may now change his "not for sale" stance and offload Rose. Till then, they will play all their designated home matches at Wembley Stadium this season.

Danny Rose, who made the headlines this week following a very honest interview about wages and the club's transfers, will also be off the team sheet with his troublesome knee injury. Ask any of those and they would hardly regard the Tottenham of Mauricio Pochettino, the impressive manager of the North Londoners for the past three seasons, as middleweights, but Spurs do operate distinctly.

"We will try now before the end of the transfer window to make everything happen and for us to get the targets and players we want to bring in here".

Club's that finished below them previous year have strengthened.

Benitez clearly has great faith in Dummett but he will be eager to prove himself in the Premier League and coming up against a side that finished 2nd in the table last season will be a big early test of his credentials.

The players have been backed by several renowned Iranian players both past and present including Ali Karimi and Mehdi Taremi. The comments set off vigorous discussion on social media in Iran, where soccer is the most popular sport.

And Rose would not rule out a move to the Premier League champions, despite their fierce rivalry with Spurs.

No Tottenham player is suspended for the trip to St. James' Park, with Dele Alli's ongoing three-match ban only valid for European competition.

What are you scared of that might derail your season?

. The injuries are piling up already Wanyama is a doubt Trippier is crocked Rose and Son won't be back until end of August and Lamela will be out until October.

So goes one of football's most pernicious pieces of received wisdom. If two-time golden boot victor Kane misses significant time this year like he did last year, Spurs will be relying on players like Vincent Janssen, Moussa Sissoko, Kevin Wimmer, and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou.

Dwight Gayle, last season's top goalscorer, will miss the opening game which could open the door for Aleksandar Mitrovic to lead the line with Ayoze Perez floating just off him in an advanced midfield role.

Will Wembley haunt Spurs once again? .

With the construction of their new stadium ongoing, Tottenham will play their Premier League home games this season at the national stadium - a venue in which Spurs have struggled.

"Sometimes last season it was an easy excuse - because it is Wembley and we can not play the same way as we did at White Hart Lane". A few clunkers at "home" next season could force Spurs off the rails.
