But while that may appease the White Hart Lane faithful, Rose says he is jealous to see Manchester City and Chelsea's heavy spending this summer.

Having helped to turn his side into Premier League title contenders, the general consensus is that more bodies are required to kick on and handle the demands of competition on multiple fronts. They have all become England internationals as well. Not a penny of that money has been spent as of yet.

Tottenham Hotspur have been the most consistent team in the Premier League over the last two seasons.

Star Bet: Of all seasons to be relocating to Wembley for a year, Tottenham fans surely wish it wasn't the upcoming one. But with Champions League obligations to contend with, that is what's worrying people.

So many players to choose from but the loan signing of Joe Hart is huge, there were significant deficiencies at the back a year ago some of those at least should be sured up by the England goalkeeper.

Tottenham's form at Wembley is bad in recent years, particularly last season when they knocked out of the Champions League at the group stages following defeats to Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen. It's another hurdle for the club to overcome. Otherwise, Pochettino's squad remains in tact. "Or Dele Alli or Kante". A couple of signings would have injected the impetus that they need to push on for a title challenge and it will be interesting to see whether they are active in the market before the end of the month.

It is hard to see them contending for the Premier League crown this season, especially considering they are yet to make a single signing in the transfer window.

Erik Lamela is an ideal fit for Spurs if he recovers from injury. He has had slow starts in the last two seasons, not scoring till September.

"No I'm not backing them for the title this year", he told Dream Team at our live Q and A event. Earlier today, Danny Rose released an official apology through his representatives, which has been accepted by the Spurs hierarchy and everyone seems ready to put this episode behind them. We try to win in a different way to other clubs. One gets the impression that success or failure here will go a long way to determining how much and what kind of business gets done before the end of the transfer window. When your immediate rivals are comfortably breaking the nine-figure mark while you are doing that, it borders on the irresponsible.

There isn't a single one to talk about as Tottenham start the season with a weaker one than finished the last campaign.
