The Premier League title race is all but done and dusted with Liverpool looking set to win their first league title in 30 years.

While the Reds have dominated the Premier League this season in an unprecedented manner, it remains to be seen whether they will be able to sustain the same sort of form next season as well.

History shows us that it is extremely hard for teams to successfully defended the Premier League title, just as Manchester City discovered last season when they edged out Liverpool by just one point.

The teams below the top two will also be hoping to challenge them with Spurs arguably best placed out of the chasing pack to mount a challenge.

Jose Mourinho has already admitted that he is looking forward to working with the team next season after completing a preseason with the side (Sky Sports).

Reports also claim that the Lilywhites could make a £120 million transfer kitty available in the summer to help Mourinho put his own fingerprint on the squad (The Express).

Spurs have received yet another boost in their quest to break into the top two – the uncertainty surrounding Manchester City.

Football.London reports that Pep Guardiola could part ways with City at the end of this season irrespective of whether the reigning Premier League champions manage to win the Champions League.

It is further suggested that City will start a massive squad rebuild in the summer with the stars over the age of 30, including David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho, likely to be replaced with younger talent.

So, it could be a transitional season at the Etihad Stadium next season and Spurs will be hoping to take advantage of that.

Spurs Web Opinion

I do believe that City are coming to the end of a cycle and could drop out of the top 2 next season. I believe the team that finishes fourth between Spurs, Chelsea and Man Utd will be best placed to take advantage of a possible City drop off as they will be able to attract their primary targets in the summer.
