The fact that Tottenham Hotspur have to play six games in the next 17 days should tell you something about their season.
When you have a plethora of matches come the final third of the season, you are obviously doing something right and not only do Mauricio Pochettino’s side have a League Cup final at the start of March to contend with, they also have a two legged Europa League tie against Serie A side Fiorentina – which was not one of the easier draws in the competition.
To get past the Italians, they will have to make sure that their defence is at the top of its game and a couple of goals find their way into the back of the net as well (not a small ask is it) and here are five players we think can make that happen.
