Getting used to a Wembley way will be hard, admits Mauricio Pochettino

This shows how thin Tottenham's squad is.

But they will spend the coming season "stuck between their past and future" as their home is rebuilt, Steinberg continues, and playing at Wembley for the next ten months could be significant.

Players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli may not stay at the club if they do not win a major piece of silverware soon, so Spurs need to stop challenging for titles and instead start winning them. It will be a blow for them to move away from White Hart Lane temporarily while the new ground is being built. And they have Harry Kane - a truly world-class striker who has scored in excess of 20 league goals in each of the last three seasons. The Evening Standard understands it would be a "surprise" for Trippier to be among Pochettino's squad for the start of the new campaign, handing the coach an early selection dilemma in an area of the field he is already low on numbers. They won only one of those four home games, and were eliminated from both competitions at the first opportunity. "It is not easy to improve, but we will find the right players to challenge". It was a hard deal to turn down, especially as the player wanted the move, but Pochettino will argue that it isn't a great loss. The 26-year-old limped off during Spurs' pre-season win over Juventus and has undergone a scan this week that has proved inconclusive. To date, Spurs are the only Premier League club yet to make a signing. New signings are important for several reasons.

The capture of Jay Rodriguez is somewhat of a coup, Rodriguez has been a key part of a growing Southampton team and his attitude and attacking flair may be just what West Brom need to propel their game to a new level.

The lack of new arrivals may not be a bad thing says Steinberg in the Guardian as "there is not a lot for Pochettino to fix".

There hasn't been much consideration for last season's runners up, despite the fact that Spurs have looked most likely to wrangle the title from first Leicester City and then their fellow Londoners in the past two years.

Will Spurs opt for Eric Dier in a defensive role? Many felt the club would use that money to sign a starting right back or at least a back-up to Trippier.

Victor Wanyama and Moussa Dembele are the first choice central midfielders, but it is the front three that has the star power.

Mauricio Pochettino's men have finished second in each of the past two Premier League seasons and the Spurs boss will need to rely on numerous same names this year too.
