Tottenham Hotspur certainly have a talented and deep array of central midfielders at their disposal for the new Premier League season.

Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko were stand out players for Pochettino in the holding roles last season, while Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama also played bit-part roles.

Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen were also utilised in deeper positions at times, and even Danny Rose found himself in the middle of midfield on more than one occasion.

Not to mention the fact that Spurs have gone out and broken their club-record transfer fee to bring in Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, really strengthening that engine room (BBC).

Unfortunately, what this does mean is that the likes of Oliver Skipp may find opportunities in the first time few and far between throughout the 2019/20 season.

The Sun report that if Spurs bring in another centre-mid, Skipp will likely face a season out on loan. The report adds that opportunities will be rare even if Spurs do not sign any new players.
