Kieran Trippier ruled out of Tottenham's season opener against Newcastle United

Since arriving at Spurs from Southampton in 2014, Mauricio Pochettino has transformed the north London club both in their playing style and more importantly in their consistency to win football matches.

The 27-year-old also urged the club, which is yet to make a summer signing, to buy big-name players - and "not players you have to Google". It was clearly never meant to be the way forward for Spurs given Pochettino's remarks, with Rose now hinting that the squad also expected a lot more to happen. Established internationals like Roberto Soldado, Paulinho and Moussa Sissoko have tended to flop at Spurs.

Dier is an essential member of the Spurs squad owing to his versatility but he hasn't played at right back for the club since the 2014/15 season and his lack of pace could be exposed by the speedy Christian Atsu out wide.

The issue of Tottenham's wage structure is still seen as troubling to a club desperate to compete with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal.

"That is not a joke".

But it's transfer windows like this one that raise the ire of supporters and further Levy's other reputation for being a tough negotiating, penny-pinching miser who doesn't listen to supporters and who won't just open up the pocketbooks and sign good players. Or Dele Alli who was in League One or Kante. "They are internationals today", Pochettino said. Mauricio Pochettino has done a tremendous job in North London and showed that he can manage at the highest level, but like the team, he needs to lift a trophy to cement his reputation as a world class manager.

"For sure we're going to spend", he told talkSPORT.

Ahead of Sunday's match, I take a look at five key Spurs questions which need to be addressed in the build up to kick-off.

Under the Argentinian manager, we have seen the rise of the two-time Golden Boot victor Harry Kane to an England and Premier League goal machine. I need Jesus to work a little.

Spurs have finished third and second in the last two Premier League seasons and many fancy them to go one better this year, but Redknapp isn't one of them.

"It is another challenge to make Wembley our home, but we are very positive about next season", added Pochettino.

Tottenham Hotspur have been the most consistent team in the Premier League over the last two seasons. If I feel that why can I be nervous? I rate him really highly - he was a brilliant component in the team and gave Conte adaptability.

The away form will therefore have to improve from last season, as while they topped the ladder in terms of home results, they had the fifth best record on the road. "I have no doubt about the team".
