Tottenham Hotspur have endured a difficult start to the campaign and currently occupy a bottom-half position in the Premier League table.
It was only four months ago that the Lilywhites were basking in the glorious Madrid weather, taking residence at the Wanda Metropolitano for their first-ever Champions League final appearance.
Unfortunately for the travelling north Londoners it wasn’t to be, but the summer proved exceptionally fruitful and signs of encouragement were rife as the likes Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso pitched up.
However, it’s fair to say that things haven’t quite worked out for Mauricio Pochettino, and there is now a growing aura of uncertainty presiding over his head.
There are question marks over the future of Christian Eriksen, and Jan Vertonghen for that matter, while Hugo Lloris is out until the New Year and Dele Alli looks a shadow of his former self.
The good news for Pochettino is that Harry Kane is still scoring at a fairly consistent rate, the aforementioned Lo Celso has just returned from a month-long injury lay-off, and Ryan Sessegnon is nearing his Spurs debut.
But, those encouraging factors will do nothing to brighten the current mood in the capital, as Spurs currently sit 11th in the table, are without a league win in three matches, and have already lost four times this season.
Full-backs again have been a prevailing issue, while Pochettino’s attack hasn’t been as slick as it once was, causing major concern for Spurs fans.
With that, which players have so far proven most culpable in this dramatic fall from grace? Who isn’t pulling their weight? And which players have stood out amongst the turmoil?
