5. Tottenham need to hold on to Mauricio Pochettino.
Since the departure of Harry Redknapp, Tottenham have failed to inject any stability into their setup. The Argentine has added some much needed structure to the Tottenham setup as they look significantly more composed and assured as compared to Pochettino’s debut season. Building a club takes time and Pochettino is understood to have the squad of his own preference after a number of departures in the summer. However, the club still lacks any reliable cover for main men Harry Kane and Cristian Ericsson. The latter in particular appeared a little out of breath towards the conclusion of the game. Adequate cover for these two positions and Tottenham should mount a serious challenge for European qualification.
