The new Premier League season starts this weekend. With lots of new signings and several managerial changes, many teams will be optimistic, but how long will that optimism last?
After correctly predicting this summer’s World Cup final, I thought I’d have a go at forecasting the top positions in this year’s league – including where I think Spurs are likely to end up – as well as previewing the likely contenders.
A great win for Spurs, albeit we were a bit lucky to hold on at the end.
- This game was almost a mirror image of our performances at home earlier in the season; losing the possession battle but looking the most likely to score.
After Spurs’ best performance of the season against Stoke the temptation would be to play an unchanged side against United. However with Paulinho’s injury (probably our best player in that game) this isn’t possible. Furthermore, it may be sensible to play a more cautious lineup away at the defending champions.
