With pre-season now complete, Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has had plenty of chances to assess his squad. Tottenham are one of the better bets with Betfair to go far into the Europa League this season but they still need to trim a very large squad. With the new season less than a week away, he has hinted that there is some pruning to be done.
“We have a week of hard work to go and there could be some changes,” he said after the 2-1 win over Schalke. “But I already have in my mind the personnel important for the game.
“We currently have 32 players so we need to be clinical in our selection.”
But who has been earmarked to leave? Reports feel that defenders Michael Dawson, Younes Kaboul and Kyle Naughton are the most vulnerable but does that leave the squad too exposed at the back? Elsewhere, Roberto Soldado, Sandro and even Andros Townsend are names doing the rounds but even though Spurs may have that massive squad, do we have enough depth to cover for all of those six players ahead of the new campaign?
