Pundit predicts Tottenham finish fourth after stellar start under new management

Spurs have had an entertaining season with an undefeated start contrasted by a long list of debilitating injuries, but with the team in good form and players returning alongside new signings, Tottenham have a lot going for them in the remaining months of the 23/24 campaign.

The global Spurs community is collectively welcoming in the second half of the Premier League season as Ange Postecoglou and company look to continue their winning ways alongside some new faces.

Recently, former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp had some positive remarks for talkSport regarding the club and how they'll fair this season (via The Spurs Web):

""...when they get their full squad again, I think Tottenham can make the top four this season. I could see them finishing fourth.”"

The former FA Cup winner may not be far off in his production. While there's still 18 matches to be played against a variety of tough opponents, the current fifth-place side is just one point off the top four and are coming into the back-half of the season with great momentum.

Over the past few days the North London club have brought in the likes of Timo Werner, on a short-term loan, and Radu Dragusin, on a six-year permanent deal. With the potential addition of another midfielder who would join the likes of James Maddison, Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma, Pape Sarr, and Giovani Lo Celso, the prospect of potential starting XI's is mouth-watering.

Tottenham take on Manchester United this Sunday at Old Trafford, where the newcomers could potentially feature in the absence of Son Heung-min and Cristian Romero.

Timo Werner, the predicted striker replacement in the absence of the Korean footballer, and Dragusin, the much needed defensive reinforcement, will likely be difference makers across the remaining fixtures.

While each player will only have a few days of integration before likely being thrown into the mix against United, the wealth of talent and experience between the two of them should hopefully make for a quick and smooth transition.

For Ange, the task is becoming clearer. For the club, the tactical identity is becoming solidified. For the fans, the hope is becoming lasting. The rest of the season will be quite an impactful time for Tottenham.
