Tottenham Hotspur had their defensive problems last season, losing 13 games and conceding 39 goals in the Premier League alone.
Luckily, Tottenham managed to cling onto fourth place in the League, meaning they secured Champions League for another season, but something has to improve.
Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld were consistent and high performing defensively as always for Spurs, with most of the issues coming down the right-hand side in the form of Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier.
However, one player I thought had a sensational end to the season was Danny Rose, with the left-back putting his troubles on and off the pitch firmly behind him.
Despite these top-class performances, Rose has been linked with a move away from the club this summer, with some reports suggesting that he could be used to fund a move for Ryan Sessegnon (talkSPORT).
This would be a huge mistake for two reasons, in my opinion. Firstly, Danny Rose is currently one of the best left-backs in the country, and still has many years left at the top.
Secondly, I do not think Sessegnon is ready to be a consistent starter for Spurs, and I’m not even convinced he will end up as a left-back at all.
I would be extremely disappointed and surprised to see Spurs sell Rose and bring in Sessegnon as a direct replacement this summer.
