Can Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur compete With Manchester City & Liverpool for the Premier League title? After going the distance in the Champions League last season, reaching the final in Madrid but just falling short against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool - losing 2-0 to goals from Mohamed Salah & Divock Origi. Pochettino’s Spurs have made a statement at the willingness to reach the top and we could see the North London side do that this season with a title challenge.Daniel Levy has backed the Argentine coach this summer by strengthening in midfield - bringing in Giovani Lo Celso & Tanguy Ndombele. With Rumours of Eriksen leaving this summer to join Real Madrid or even Manchester United - Spurs made sure to strengthen in the central areas. Tottenham managed to complete the signing of 19 year old Ryan Sessegnon on deadline day from Fulham and we could see the young Englishmen start ahead of or challenge Danny Rose at left back/wing-back.The attacking talent now at Pochettino’s disposal is the best the Argentine has ever had and it forms an interesting problem trying to pick Spurs’ best XI. The diamond we mentioned before could be a big game system and depending who plays at the base could see a formation tweak.In terms of retaining the shape, Harry Winks would be the playmaking option whilst Victor Wanyama could be brought in to add extra physicality and protection for the defence - but Eric Dier could come in and allow the system to transition to a back three in game and we could see this employed as Spurs look to see games out.Can Mauricio Pochettino knock Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City from the top and land the first ever Premier League title for Tottenham Hotspurs this season?#MauricioPochettino #PochettinoTactics #PremierLeague
