1. Tottenham to show solidarity in the face of Harry Kane media storm
The media storm that has in the last few days enveloped Tottenham can have either a harming or invigorating effect on the players. It’s not easy being around camp when all you hear about, whether you want to or not, is your star asset’s purported inevitable departure.
But Tottenham will find a way to show solidarity and support Kane no matter what he decides. Kane has led Tottenham by example for years and has his teammates’ unwavering respect and admiration.
They’ll also want to prove to their talisman, via a comprehensive victory over Villa, that he should stay at the club for one more season. If he decides to leave in pursuit of team trophies, there would be no better way than to move on from his boyhood club with another Golden Boot to his name. His teammates will want that for him as much as he desires it for himself.
So Villa better be on point, as a motivated and defiant Tottenham Hotspur in their last home match, in front of 10,000 raucous supporters, is intent on taking no prisoners.
