Tottenham Hotspur will begin their Premier League campaign with a home game against newly-promoted Aston Villa on Saturday evening.
Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke are the only two players Spurs have signed so far this summer with just over two days left until the transfer deadline.
This has caused some anxiety among Spurs fans as they were hoping the club would send out a statement this summer by making major acquisitions and try to push on and compete for trophies.
In stark contrast, Tottenham’s North London rivals, Arsenal, as well as Manchester United, have both strengthened their squads considerably this summer.
However, despite their signings, former Liverpool manager Graeme Souness has written off Arsenal’s and United’s hopes of challenging for the title.
The 66-year-old said he expects Manchester City and Liverpool to once again contest for the title, with Tottenham being their nearest challengers.
Speaking to the Metro, Souness said: “I still think, even though Maguire will make them (Man Utd) better, it doesn’t make them good enough to challenge at the top.
“I see it being between the big two again [champions Manchester City and runners-up Liverpool.
“The nearest challengers will be Tottenham – and after that United. Neither Arsenal or Chelsea are good enough.”
Spurs Web Opinion
It is too early to predict confidently how Tottenham will fare this season, we believe that the club needs to bring in at least two quality additions before the transfer window shuts if they wish to close the gap with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table.
