Kieran Trippier : Defender's injury overshadows Spurs' Juve conquest

Spurs didn't suffer many long-term injuries last season.

Tottenham will once again be pennywise and pound foolish, and it could derail all of the great momentum they've built as they head into their new stadium. They also lost the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at the same ground.

It would be a surprise if Tottenham didn't make a single signing this summer, as it could slow down their progression under Pochettino.

Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino have improved dramatically over the past two campaigns, going from potential top four contenders to legitimate title contenders, though without any silverware to show for it.

Walker-Peters - a member of England World Cup-winning Under-20 side - is the only other right-back in the squad but has yet to make his senior competitive debut, although he replaced Trippier against Juve.

"The way we have played the last few years.there is a lot of confidence in the team", he told Sky Sports.

Tottenham simply could not afford for Kieran Trippier to get injured in pre-season.

"He was out of the squad on Saturday because he couldn't play, but we will see this week how he is and what the doctors say and then we will decide".

With the departure of right-back Kyle Walker to Manchester City, they have in fact sold one of their better players to a direct rival.

Mauricio Pochettino has publicly stated that he wants to sign players before the end of the transfer window, but it appears that chairman Daniel Levy is of a different opinion.

Spurs have one of the best starting XIs in the Premier League.

At the same time, Spurs have been linked with a move for Valencia full-back Joao Cancelo, while Pochettino has confirmed that Kyle Walkers-Peters isn't ready to be thrown into the deep end in the Premier League.

The Spurs boss added that the transfer market "is a little bit insane, but you can not stop the evolution of football", and stressed: "We will find the right players to challenge".

It was a twist of fate involving the misfiring Roberto Soldado that gave Harry Kane the opportunity to become Tottenham's first choice striker back in 2014 - and after taking that opportunity with both hands, the Englishman has never looked back.
