It has been an off-colour start for Spurs and the Champions League runners-up have not been in their prime. The North Londoners have had a mixed start, more inclined towards the bottom of the barrel.
Spurs, however, have great opportunity to fight back their way into the top four, come Premier League back. Currently sitting in the 9th position, two points behind top four and two ahead of the relegation club.
After the end of international break, Spurs have a lot of positives to look upon. The Lily Whites have a handful of injury returns that will surely strengthen their squad as well as the valour.
First of all is Dele Alli, who may have recovered in the game against Arsenal but will be back to his usual after a long international break. Tottenham’s last minute signing from Fulham, Ryan Sessegnon is yet to feature for the club and may as well recover by the time domestic league arrives.
Tanguy Ndombele missed the last two games of Spurs due to thigh injury and will mostly be a part of starting XI against Crystal Palace. The likes of Juan Foyth, Eric Dier and Kyle Walker-Peters may as well join the club in next game.
The more of Giovani Lo Celso and Ndombele combination promises peach things to come. Lo Celso will surely take time to settle in the squad but more game time of the talented youngster from Real Betis will help the club furthermore.
Apart from the squad themselves, the Premier League fixtures also favour the Lily whites. The next five fixture for Tottenham are comparatively easy and considering their past, they can fancy gaining full points from the games. Spurs have only amassed 4 points in equal games and in the next five games against Crystal Palace, Watford, Brighton, Leicester and Southampton, Spurs would try and gain maximum points possible.
Tottenham only need three points to change the make-up of the table and give themselves an upper hand in the 20 team chart.
