Manchester United should not target Danny Rose

Kieran Trippier

Natural progression would indicate that they would finish first this campaign but that is easier said than done.

"Of course, they were never going to go out and buy an Antoine Griezmann or an Angel Di Maria, but I think they do have to make a couple of big signings", Jenas told GQ Magazine. Tottenham are certainly one of them.

The England striker, who claimed the top-flight's golden boot last term for the second straight year with 29 goals, has yet to hit the target in August in the top flight but Pochettino believes he remains a special player.

Spurs remain the only Premier League side yet to add a new player to their squad, despite selling Kyle Walker, Nabil Bentaleb, Clinton N'Jie and Federico Fazio. They have an excellent goalkeeper and captain in Hugo Lloris. They have a fluid midfield who defend very well and have skillful attacking players. But for now, we can put these dreams where they belong, back on the very top shelf, unreachable behind all the other forbidden fruits.

Will Wembley haunt Spurs once again? . But this season seems different.

"There are clearly two egos and a power struggle behind the scenes about what's going on". But the Argentine did observe following a heavy friendly defeat to Manchester City that his side were a "little behind", adding the arrival of big name players would provide the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane with the flawless motivation to match last season's exploits.

The club have also cashed in on Kyle Walker, squeezing £50m out of Manchester City for the England global.

This will not be music to the ears of Spanish boss Benitez who has so far admitted his frustration in not being able to strengthen his squad to compete in the hard and challenging Premier League. Spurs have done next to nothing in the summer transfer market.

"But the Premier League's where everyone wants to be, and we're really happy to be back". If they do not continue to improve and pick up some silverware in the coming season then they may face the possibility of losing their key players to better clubs, which would put Pochettino and Levy right back at the start of their project. Levy has even criticised the huge transfer sums paid by Tottenham's direct rivals on new players.

The worst situation now would be for Spurs to return to a side that helps to produce great players, but then can not keep hold of them and can not build on their squad. It's all the more impressive given the two separate periods he sat on the sidelines for recovering from ankle ligament injuries.
