Lewis Holtby has been talked about time and time again on here and on other websites but the German seems determined to take advantage of the chances he’s being given at Spurs this season.
After helping to finally unlock Cardiff’s defence in second half injury time, the midfielder provided three direct assists in Tottenham’s 4-0 victory at Villa Park in the Capital One Cup and must surely be in AVB’s thoughts for a starting slot in Saturday’s London Derby.
Holtby himself realises that this current Spurs squad is an immensely strong one and he believes it has all the qualities needed to challenge on four fronts during this campaign.
“Silverware is silverware. There’s four cups to play for and you want to win all of them,” said Lewis.
“If you want to go to the top as a professional footballer you try to win every game and you try to win every trophy.
“That’s what we are trying to do and we just have to work like we have as a team the last couple of weeks.
“We have a big chance of winning something but it is a very long season.”
Spurs have great strength in depth right now but whether they can fight on all fronts over a long season is doubtful. As for Lewis Holtby, if he does come in to Saturday’s side then the man under most pressure could be Gylfi Sigurdsson with Andros Townsend a possible alternative.
Dropping to the bench would be tough on the Icelander but Holtby’s claims are getting harder to ignore.
