Newcastle, meanwhile, head into the clash with manager Rafael Benitez having vowed to battle through his transfer window frustration to tackle life in the top flight head on.

Short: No significant hiring, and the headline move the departure of Kyle Walker, sold to Manchester City for over £50 million (Dh239m), a record-breaking sum for a right-back.

If he is able to stay fit and score goals at a rate similar to that of last the campaign, Spurs will feel a lot more confident about their title chances.

As Smith puts it: "Maybe part of the problem there is because the Premier League teams have so much churn every year, whereas in Europe it's less pronounced ..." Are Spurs going to break their wage structure?

It's safe to say that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy divides opinion. In addition, Spurs are building the newest, biggest, and best club stadium in England, which will open in fall 2018.

Rose, who has apologised for giving an interview criticising the club's transfer policy on the eve of the season, is expected to be back in action in September. Mauricio Pochettino has done a tremendous job in North London and showed that he can manage at the highest level, but like the team, he needs to lift a trophy to cement his reputation as a world class manager.

Venezuela's new Constituent Assembly declares itself superior to all other government bodies
A British-based company, Smartmatic, that supplied the voting technology has said the turnout figure was "tampered with". The new constitutional assembly has signaled it will act swiftly in following through with Maduro's commands.

The aptly named Kyle Walker-Peters has been touted as that possible replacement, but despite impressing in the preseason, the 20-year-old is still yet to play a single minute of senior football.

The South Korean star played a pivotal role in Tottenham's title challenge last season, and despite injury picked up on worldwide duty last month, the 25-year-old is in contention to be fit to start on Sunday. An attacking three of Kane, Eriksen and Alli is arguably the best in the Premier League when playing in a 3-4-2-1.

Signed from Benfica in 2015 for €15m, Cancelo has made 73 La Liga appearances for Los Che and netted three worldwide goals in four appearances.

What are you scared of that might derail your season?

. The injury crisis at right back might mean both Kevin Wimmer and Moussa Sissoko, who looked nailed on for the exit door, have to play key roles not only against Newcastle, but potentially against Chelsea at Wembley. If two-time golden boot victor Kane misses significant time this year like he did last year, Spurs will be relying on players like Vincent Janssen, Moussa Sissoko, Kevin Wimmer, and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou. Last season he finished the second half with eight goals and 15 assists in the League.

The other wildcard is Spurs' year at Wembley Stadium. That would not matter, nor cause such trembling among some supporters, except that, with their White Hart Lane site being completely redeveloped, Wembley will be their home throughout the next 10 months. Spurs are flexible in that they have two formations that are very effective in the Premier League and they will switch between them as the season progresses.
