Difficult to see Harry Kane being risked for this one – what with the League Cup final looming. With Mason’s arrival, I am presuming that there will be a certain degree of new broom activity to represent how troublesome Mourinho was at Tottenham. Dele Alli and Bale to start would demonstrate this.
With no side dropping more points (20) from winning positions than Tottenham in this Premier League campaign, there are clear problems to address for any incoming manager.
Yet despite that record, Spurs’ 3-1 defeat to Manchester United was the first time this season Tottenham have lost a home league match after scoring first. Our recent home games have also provided plenty of entertainment, with an average of 4.33 goals per game across their last three Premier League fixtures in N17.
