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

"We have a good team, we're happy, and I think we can do even better than a year ago". Tottenham are an attractive club - located in London, playing Champions League football, have a young and talented squad, and a very promising manager. "We were a different team then and hopefully we've grown and we can show that next weekend".

Tottenham remain the only Premier League team yet to make a signing this summer, although Pochettino has claimed that some deals are in the pipeline, and Cancelo could well be one of those. Pochettino will argue that he already has a great group of players available to him and it would be hard to improve any one position.

"It's a big challenge for us", the Argentine told TalkSport on Wednesday. Harry Winks made 33 appearances for Spurs in all competitions last season before suffering a freak, season-ending ankle injury against Burnley in April.

Back-to-back Premier League Golden Boot victor Harry Kane has for the first time enjoyed a summer without having to take part in an global tournament. A lot of Spurs fans aren't happy about this, especially considering Everton have been holding out for a ludicrous £50m fee, and because Ross Barkley is. well, Ross Barkley. A few clunkers at "home" next season could force Spurs off the rails. The injury crisis at right back might mean both Kevin Wimmer and Moussa Sissoko, who looked nailed on for the exit door, have to play key roles not only against Newcastle, but potentially against Chelsea at Wembley.

North Korea Aside, Guam Faces Another Threat: Climate Change
Calvo said there was "concern and worry" among the people of Guam but "no panic". That is Jessica Pettigrew's reaction when the topic of North Korea comes up.

Dier is an essential member of the Spurs squad owing to his versatility but he hasn't played at right back for the club since the 2014/15 season and his lack of pace could be exposed by the speedy Christian Atsu out wide.

With this additional time to reach greater levels of fitness and regain match sharpness, could Kane start the season in the same sort of fashion which he has finished the previous three?

On Sunday, Harry Kane will lead Tottenham Hotspur into the first game of their 2017-18 Premiere League campaign. We will find the right players to challenge. Spurs would have wanted to avoid them if they could. Pochettino will want another season of consolidation in the top four, but he will also like to see this team win a trophy and it could be that the domestic cups are treated with more respect than they have been recently. While Tottenham fans have been moaning about Rose's comments, there is little truth in the fact that he is not making as much as some of the other stars in the Spurs side.
