The 2016/2017 campaign was seen as an excellent season by many Spurs fans as they kept the pressure on Chelsea in the Premier League title race.
Tottenham won nine games in a row to close the gap to Chelsea, and despite falling short, they played some great football on the way.
Their form and performances show there isn’t much to change regarding the starting eleven and manager for Spurs.
But what do Tottenham need to continue this great style of football next season and, maybe, win some long awaited silverware?
Wembley shouldn’t be a problem for Spurs next season, especially if they play as they did in the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea – despite losing the tie. On another day they could’ve won the game.
At times last season, and even the 2015/2016 season before, it seemed that when Spurs ran out of ideas when things weren’t going their way. They didn’t have a player who could come off the bench and make a real impact and difference.
If you look at the FA Cup semi-final of the FA Cup, at 2-2, Chelsea brought on Diego Costa and Eden Hazard while Spurs could only turn to on Georges N’Koudou, Moussa Sissoko, and Vincent Janssen.
These changes may have proved useful in games against the lower teams in the league, but in ties with such significance, teams need a big game player.
Spurs certainly have that in the starting eleven with the likes of Dele Alli, Harry Kane, and Christian Eriksen but there isn’t a player on the bench who makes as much of an impact or has the same talent as the players in the starting eleven.
Heung-Min Son has been a player who was once considered a super sub, but with the South Korean in superb form last season, he will feature heavily in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans next season.
Tottenham have been linked with the likes of Thomas Lemar of Monaco and Isco of Real Madrid – both would be a perfect fit for the Lilywhites.
If Spurs signed one of these high-quality players, it would give them some much-needed squad depth and take a huge weight off the shoulders of the likes of Kane, Eriksen, and Alli.
Keeping the team fit and allowing key players to be rested with allow Spurs to remain competitive on multiple fronts and enable them to build on last season’s success.
