An important season lies ahead for Mauricio Pochettino

Transfer rebels seem to be commonplace in this day and age and they can disrupt a team

I don't think we will see the repeat of May 2016, but this certainly won't be a walk in the park for Spurs either.

This will not be music to the ears of Spanish boss Benitez who has so far admitted his frustration in not being able to strengthen his squad to compete in the hard and challenging Premier League.

The Spurs chief has yet to make a splash in the transfer market this summer despite netting a £50million windfall from selling Kyle Walker. If they do not continue to improve and pick up some silverware in the coming season then they may face the possibility of losing their key players to better clubs, which would put Pochettino and Levy right back at the start of their project.

Ashley admits that the club or himself have no where near the resources to challenge the mega rich owners who back a number of Premier League clubs.

Spurs didn't suffer many long-term injuries last season.

Pochettino is happy to draw a line under the controversy but pointed to the achievements of Rose' England colleagues Eric Dier and Dele Alli to underline the folly of the full-back's stance.

The manager is more than aware the club could run into problems sooner or later if they are unable to win a trophy, something they have failed to do so since lifting the League Cup in 2008. So why aren't players arriving? This usually happens when a club is building their own stadium.

"Benitez is loved by the fans, Ashley isn't, and I think that will play out".

The Gunners' north London rivals are using England's national stadium as their home venue while the construction of the new White Hart Lane continues. In their past nine matches at Wembley, which Tottenham used for their home matches in Europe last season, Spurs have won only once. However, he also doubted Tottenham's chances of taking advantage, suggesting that playing at Wembley might prove a hindrance.

"In terms of quality, we certainly have the quality, you saw that last season, but again there's no way of getting around it that we have to keep players fit because at the minute the squad is not as big as other squads".

The quality of the opposition was good in nearly all of those matches, but Tottenham did seem like a fish out of water in the unfamiliar surroundings.

Sanchez, who plays at primarily as a centre back but can also fill in at right back, was Ajax's Player of the Year last season, despite it being his first year at the club.
