2020-21 Review: Tottenham sneak into Europe

The 2021-21 Premier League season started very well for Tottenham. Jose Mourinho was working his magic at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as Spurs went 11 games unbeaten after a somewhat shock 1-0 home loss to Everton on the opening weekend.

Tottenham beat Manchester City 2-0 at home on 21st November, which was a fourth league win on the spin. In doing so, Mourinho’s men went to the top of the table. They beat Arsenal by the same scoreline a couple of weeks later, though they went on to draw two and lose two of the following four, losing a top-of-the-table clash to Liverpool in mid-December in the process.

Harry Kane to stay at Tottenham

The Londoners made a mixed start to 2021, beating Leeds United and Sheffield United and drawing with Fulham in their opening three. However, they then went on a horrid run of five losses in six, which was the beginning of the end for Jose.

A few days before the EFL Cup final with Man City, Mourinho was relieved of his duties at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with young Ryan Mason taking over for the remainder of the season. Mason’s record was four wins and three losses from seven league and cup games.

On the final weekend of the season, Tottenham pipped rivals Arsenal to Europe. A 4-2 win at Leicester City gave Spurs a spot in the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League. Real Madrid loan star Gareth Bale was the hero, scoring two late goals to fire the Lilywhites into Europe.

Our betting prediction:
Tottenham to finish in the top six

2021-22 Fixtures: Spurs start against City

The 2021-22 season could not get off to a harder start for Nuno’s men. Tottenham entertain Premier League champions Man City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the opening weekend. Spurs won this fixture 2-0 last season, but Pep Guardiola’s troops will start this year as the red-hot favourites to win the Premier League title.

Santo then makes a trip back to Molineux as Tottenham face Wolves in their second match. Their first London derby will come against Chelsea in mid-September. A week later, Spurs travel to the Emirates Stadium to face fierce rivals Arsenal. The second north London derby will take place on Tottenham’s turf in January.

Tottenham’s penultimate away match will see them travel to Anfield, while they end the 2021-22 Premier League season with a trip to Norfolk to play newly promoted Norwich City. Their final home league game will come a week earlier against Burnley.

Tottenham Hotspur Key Facts

  • Last year was Spurs’ lowest finish since 2009
  • The Lilywhites were Champions League finalists in 2019
  • Tottenham won six of their opening ten PL matches last term


Tottenham Transfer News: Who will Nuno bring to north London?

Tottenham’s summer transfer dealings will depend on whether they sell star man Harry Kane. The England skipper has been heavily linked with a move away from north London, with Man City the current favourites to land his signature. Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid – among others – are also reportedly keen on Spurs’ No. 10. At the time of writing, Kane is priced at 11/8 to stay at Spurs.

Several players are expected to leave Spurs, with a number of new stars set to make their way to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It remains to be seen whether Nuno will raid Wolves for their star men. Adama Traore is available at 3/1 to move to Tottenham, while the Lilywhites have also been linked with Wanderers captain Conor Coady – Danny Ings and David De Gea have also been rumoured to be on their radar.

Who Are Spurs’ Biggest Challengers: Top four a tough task

Tottenham were in a great position to claim one of the four Champions League places last term. They even looked like genuine title contenders early on. However, things went horribly wrong for Mourinho, and Spurs had to settle for a place in the Europa Conference League at the very end. The battle for the top four promises to be as thrilling as ever – who are Tottenham’s biggest challengers?

Manchester City Preview: Citizens to retain their title?

Man City have rightly been named the title favourites for the upcoming season. Guardiola’s superstars made a sluggish start to last term before recovering expertly well to win the league at a canter. Adding Kane to their ranks will just make City even stronger, but the Citizens will remain the team to beat regardless.

Liverpool Preview: Can the Reds get back in the title race?

Liverpool and Man City were involved in a stunning tussle for the Premier League title in the 2018-19 season, with City pipping the Reds to the trophy by just one point. Between them, Man City and Liverpool racked up a staggering 195 points. The following season, Liverpool won the title on 99 points.

After two season of shear brilliance, Liverpool struggled to live up to those dizzy heights last term. They were in a decent position to challenge for the title at the end of the year, but the Merseysiders made a woeful start to 2021, which cost them dearly in the end.

Liverpool ended up finishing a whopping 17 points behind Man City. However, a late flourish saw them finish in third and secure Champions League football. Can the Reds get back to being title contenders this season?

Manchester United Preview: Will Ole keep on improving the Red Devils?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has slowly but surely improved Man United since inheriting the managerial reigns during the 2018-19 campaign. Ole has taken the Red Devils into the Champions League two seasons in a row. Last year, United finished runners-up to City, going the entire campaign unbeaten away from home. The Manchester giants will be hoping to finish in the Champions League places yet again.

Man United have a supremely talented squad, which could get stronger in the summer months. Persuading Edison Cavani to sign a one-year extension back in May could be their best bit of business yet, while the capture of Jadon Sancho will be exciting. They have one of the best midfields in the league in Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, and they could close the gap on their neighbours this season.

Chelsea Preview: Tuchel to take the Blues into the top four again?

Thomas Tuchel done a sterling job at Chelsea after taking over from the sacked Frank Lampard back in January. The former Borussia Dortmund & PSG manager took the Blues to the FA Cup final and secured a place in the top four. At the end of the campaign, Chelsea pulled off a real shock by beating Man City in the 2021 Champions League final in Porto.

Chelsea made several world-class signings last summer, who have all now had a good year to settle in at Stamford Bridge. Going into the new season as European champions will certainly stand them in good stead, also. With one or two shrewd signings before the season gets underway, Chelsea could be genuine title contenders this year.

Arsenal Preview: Will the Gunners make a comeback?

Arsenal have been going backwards in recent years, but there have been signs of life under Mikel Arteta. The London club have no European football to contend with for the first time in 26 years. Nevertheless, not being in Europe could be a blessing as the Gunners look to break back into the top four.

Spurs players to watch out for in the 2021-22 season: Will Son take over as Spurs’ main man?

Although Nuno is expected to chop and change his squad before a ball has been kicked, Spurs will no doubt have a talented squad of players for the 2021-22 season. Kane is their biggest goal threat at present, and the new coaching team will be doing all in their power to keep the striker in the white half of north London.

Since arriving at Tottenham back in 2015, Son Heung-min has turned himself into a Tottenham legend. There have been one or two whispers of Son moving on this summer, but the South Korea international is likely to stay at Spurs. If Kane does leave, Son will become Tottenham’s main man.

Our Tottenham Hotspur Predictions: Spurs to secure top six

As we touched on, making the top four this season will be as difficult as ever. The likes of Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United could be battling it out for the title, making the top four a tough task for the chasing pack.

Inconsistency was Tottenham’s Achilles heel last season, but they still reached a cup final and snuck into Europe on the final weekend. Nuno will be hoping to hit the ground running at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but the top four could be out of reach this year. Nonetheless, we are backing the London giants to make the top six, which is currently priced at 4/5.
