Tottenham is currently in third place on the Premier League standings, behind Manchester City and the leader Liverpool.
After failing to sign a single player last summer, very few people gave Spurs much of a chance of challenging the League title this season. They have so far exceeded expectations and should be able to get a top four finish at the end of the season and qualify for next seasons Champions League.
However, will they actually challenge for the League this season? probably not.
Despite being one of the best teams in England, Mauricio Pochettino’s side has not tasted much success during recent years. The last time it won a major trophy was way back in 2008 when it claimed the League Cup.
The Spurs could potentially challenge the Cup tournaments but lack the strength in depth to challenge the League honors. Not to mention it has also just had bad luck in its way this season.
Son Heung-Min has been one of Spurs best attackers during recent weeks and done sterling’s job supporting Harry Kane up front. The South Korean has so far scored eight goals and provided five assists from sixteen games.
However, he is set to miss up to five games as he is on international duty for his country during the 2019 Asian Cup.
Not to mention the other injury concerns which the North Londoners have. Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen are only expected to return to action later in January due to Appendicitis and a thigh strain respectively. Victor Wanyama is out for the long-term and Moussa Dembélé will return later this month from his ankle injury.
Spurs may be able to churn out good results against the best teams and beat them. However, it is just hard to see it consistently winning games. The team has bad luck and do not have the same amount of squad depth as Liverpool and Manchester City.
