Without question, Tottenham have a tough set of fixtures awaiting them as they close out the 2023/24 campaign.

On April 28th, the North London club take on Arsenal (1st), after whom they'll face Chelsea and Liverpool (3rd) in sequence (Sky Sports). Two weeks after that, they'll challenge the reigning champions, Manchester City.

However, despite the challenges ahead and those which the club have endured throughout the season, the players are simply giving it their all; and perhaps no one more than midfielder Yves Bissouma.

The 27-year-old, now in his second season at the club, has found regular playing time under the new management of Ange Postecoglou.

Though Biss struggled in his first season in Lilywhite, finding his way into just 23 matches of PL football under Antonio Conte, this year's campaign has been a different story (Transfermarkt).

He's already started 23 of the 24 games he's been available for (with six remaining), working his way into Ange's regular selection (Transfermarkt). Of course, five of his absences were due to suspensions from bookings in previous matches, and during those games the club went 3-0-2 (Transfermarkt).

Nevertheless, his presence on the pitch has been much more prominent.

Recently speaking with SPURSPLAY, the Mali footballer talked about his efforts and commitments to the club's high aspirations.

"The thing [which is] really important for me now... [is to] try to put the club where it deserves because the fans, they deserve it. The club deserves it," Yves said.

"Tottenham is a big club; for me it's one of the best clubs in the world, and the best clubs in the world need to have what they need to have. That's why we're here, we're working really hard. It's not easy, yeah, but we'll do everything we can to put the club where it needs to be. That's my dream."

The English top flight is arguably the toughest division of football in the world and the players are cogniszcant of that. It's for that very reason that they know to bring their best week-in and week-out.

"It's a big challenge, but we're ready for that," Bissouma added.

Tottenham take on Arsenal in roughly a week's time, and if Ange's past starting-XI's are anything to go by, it's likely that we'll see a North London Derby featuring Bissouma, who will undoubtedly give his best.
