Tottenham Hotspur were known to have a very settled side under Mauricio Pochettino in the Premier League, with the Argentine sticking by his young team.

Even now that Poch has left the building, the vast majority of his squad still remain in North London, fighting for a top-four spot under Jose Mourinho.

Christian Eriksen, who has now left, was at Spurs for seven seasons. Rose, now out on loan, has been there for more than 12 years. Kane and Winks came through the academy.

Despite his injury problems, Erik Lamela has remained a Spurs man for seven seasons. Vertonghen has been there since 2012, and Alderweireld since 2015.

A new study has analysed the starting line-ups from Premier League clubs for the first half of the current season, looking at the average playing time.

Tottenham had an average months played of 49.3, top of the table, while Arsenal only had 21, placing them second from bottom.
