Spurs' 2019/20 full season fixtures

Last season at a glance

Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham celebrate their incredible comeback at Ajax

The emphasis in the Premier League title race was always on Man City and Liverpool, but at one stage Spurs genuinely looked like dark horses for the trophy.

They then went on a run of five games without victory in February and March and the fixture congestion with the Champions League in April saw their top-four hopes hanging in the balance. Despite winning just one of their last five, they clung on to clinch fourth, just a point ahead of rivals Arsenal.

They have now finished in the top four in the last four seasons to assert themselves as one of the country's top sides.

The lasting memory of 2018/19, though, will be that Champions League run which saw them reach the final in dramatic style.

From nearly exiting at the group stage following a tough draw with Barcelona, Inter Milan and PSV, to hitting four past Dortmund, beating Man City over two legs which included a seven-goal thriller at the Etihad and then scoring six minutes into added time at Ajax to book their place in the final. It was certainly a rollercoaster ride for Spurs fans. Although it did not end quite how they would have liked, it was definitely one to remember.

Big questions for 2019/20

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium: Can they deliver silverware in their first full campaign in their new ground?

That being said about Mauricio Pochettino's side becoming an established top four outfit, they have not turned their success into silverware. They have not won a trophy since 2008 and the longer it hangs over them, the tougher it gets. So can they finally win something next season? Can they bring success to the club in their first full season in the new stadium?

A previous question would have been whether they have the backing to compete with top clubs. They have shown that this summer in a big way, now they need to answer the big question and silence any doubters - and their noisy north London neighbours.

Star man - Harry Kane

Harry Kane: Tottenham forward celebrates his stunning goal from the halfway line in pre-season against Juventus

Spurs may have spent over £50 million on a single player, but England forward Harry Kane remains the main man and is worth much more to the club.

After initially being labelled a one-season wonder, he proved doubters wrong by consistently scoring in the last five seasons and notching up an impressive record of 164 goals and 28 assists in 253 appearances for the north Londoners.

Injury interrupted the second half of his campaign in 2018/19 as Spurs reached the Champions League final. He made his return for the Madrid showpiece, but was not match sharp and he will be raring to go for 2019/20 as they look to finally secure silverware with this team.

Not only is Kane's presence vital, Pochettino's men do notice his importance more when you realise how dearly they miss the 25-year-old when he is not leading the line. He has all the attributes of a top striker: Strength and agility, pace and he is not afraid to try his luck from distance - quite a rarity in the modern game.

Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld (if he stays), Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli are vital, but Kane is the main man.

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

A huge bit of business for Tottenham was actually keeping hold of Pochettino over the last 12 months.

The Argentinian was heavily linked with the Manchester United job when the Red Devils were searching for a permanent replacement for Jose Mourinho midway through last season, a short time after after Pochettino was also linked with the vacancy at Real Madrid.

He recently admitted in pre-season that he would probably have quit his job if Tottenham won the Champions League in May - a slight positive for Spurs fans that they did not win at the Wanda Metropolitano.

His influence at the club is huge and, as one of the most revered managers in the modern game, is a big pull for the club when they are in the market for signings.

He had previously hinted at frustration with not being well backed in the transfer market, but this season he has been rewarded for his efforts by splashing £55.5 million on Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and Leeds youngster Jack Clarke, who has since been loaned back to the Yorkshire club, in a deal reportedly worth £11.5 million in total.

Pochettino is an incredibly likeable character and with his talents and knowledge of the game, there is no better man for the job in Spurs' first full season in their new stadium.
