Tottenham Hotspur have taken a few big blows this week after losing to Man United, suffering injuries to Kane and Sissoko, before waving goodbye to both Dembele and Son (albeit temporarily for the latter).
However, despite all this, Spurs still sit third in the Premier League and must do everything in their power to remain there.
With Fernando Llorente as the sole fit senior striker, and Harry Winks the only available first team central midfielder, things could be tough over the next few weeks for Spurs.
Fans will be hoping that Poch and Levy dip into the transfer market to help strengthen the depleted squad, as they continue to fight on four fronts for trophies.
The Lilywhites have fast-approaching ties against Chelsea in the League Cup semi and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League to contend with.
However, despite their hardships, ex-Liverpool forward Neil Mellor claims Tottenham are still in the periphery of the title race.
He had this to say on the LFC TV Review Show: “They [Spurs] are still on the periphery, aren’t they?
“When you look at it [the table], you’d say yes, they are still just about in that race, maybe you can say the same about Chelsea.
“But, it very much feels like it’s a two-horse race.
“The good thing is we’re doing all we can.
“We’ve responded to the defeat against Manchester City superbly well with the three points down at Brighton.”
