A season-defining sequence of matches coming up for Spurs – with Chelsea (H), Inter (H) and Arsenal (A) ahead in the coming week.
First up, unbeaten Chelsea who – true to form – have responded very positively to a new manager – and yet only reside a point ahead of Spurs in the Premier League table.
Considering how easily the likes of Liverpool and Man City took points off Spurs at Wembley, I am not expecting much from this game.
Much will depend on how solid we are at the back and the return of Jan Vertonghen to fitness may force Mauricio Pochettino to throw the Belgian straight into the fray, especially with Davinson Sanchez injured, and Juan Foyth only just returning from international duty from Argentina.
Speaking of injuries, Kieron Trippier, Danny Rose and Moussa Dembele continue to be unavailable while Erik Lamela is in a similar boat as Foyth, leaving the probable line-up almost inevitable.
