Opinion: Five Spurs players who desperately need to prove themselves next season

Throughout this season, there have been many players who have underperformed and not lived up to their true potential. Whatever the reasons behind these shortcomings, we wanted to take a look at the top five Spurs players who desperately need to prove themselves under Mourinho next season.

Hugo Lloris – Even though he’s been injured for the majority of this season, Lloris has not looked at his best during the 19/20 campaign. Although he’s had a few solid games between the sticks, he’s also had a fair few mistakes in him, and at costly times. Take the Leipzig second leg as an example; if he wants to solidify his spot in our starting 11 he must start to perform at a higher standard next season.

Troy Parrott – Troy has not underperformed this season (mainly because he hasn’t played). But with our lack of strikers, Parrott needs to step and prove himself next year, especially if Levy doesn’t splash the cash on a new back-up to Harry Kane. If the 2020/21 season is not Parrott’s breakthrough year, then we would feel a little disappointed.

Tanguy Ndombele – Tanguy has been a hot topic of discussion recently, with many people criticising his lack of fitness. However, we all know Ndombele is a true baller and has so much potential with the ball at his feet. It seems to be the mental side of the game and his desire to dig in and work for the team that needs to develop. Tanguy needs to step up next season to make transfer record seem worth it.

Lucas Moura – Many people will always cherish Moura for his breath-taking hat-trick last year against Ajax. A player who, on his day, seems to bring so much to the team, has seemed out of his depth this year. With lots of lacklustre performances, Lucas will have to prove himself as a consistent starter next season, or risk dropping back to the bench. In fairness to him, Moura has been forced to play near enough every minute since Mourinho took over and you cannot fault his work rate and commitment.

Ryan Sessegnon – Sessegnon is a remarkable young talent. We all know what he can do after his fantastic season in the Championship with Fulham, however, we are yet to see anything close to that form in a Spurs shirt. Hopefully, next season he can get some more game time under his belt, come out of his shell, and start bombing up and down that left-hand-side.

Is there anyone else you would add to this list?
