• Tottenham are here to stay
If anyone thought Tottenham’s title push last season was a flash in the pan they will surely have been disabused of that idea if they saw the way Mauricio Pochettino’s team took Manchester City apart in mid-October.
True, they are on a mediocre run of form right now – drawing their last three games – but there is little doubt the team is heading in the right direction. They are three points off the top, are unbeaten and have the meanest defence in the Premier League – while juggling Champions League football.
Harry Kane’s injury has robbed them of a goal threat with Vincent Janssen not looking up to the job but the England striker’s imminent return should make life rosier again.
