2022 has the potential to be a huge year for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. There has been huge unrest at Spurs since the sacking of long-time manager Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019. Three coaches have since been installed at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but both José Mourinho and Nuno Espírito Santo were relieved of their duties following poor results. Prior to the appointment of Nuno, Antonio Conte was Daniel Levy’s number one choice but the Italian could not reach an agreement with the Tottenham hierarchy. Things changed following the sacking of former Wolves boss Espírito Santo, and Conte was quickly brought in as Spurs manager this past November. Who are the players that are most important under the new Conte regime?
Admittedly quite an obviously pick, but it’s impossible to omit Tottenham’s best striker for some years from this top five list. Many online casino outlets would struggle to match the excitement Harry Kane can serve up when on top form. Arguably one of the world’s elite footballers, Kane is showing improved form under Conte as the season progresses and will be key to Tottenham’s success this term.
One of the best pieces of business ever completed by Tottenham Hotspur is the signing of Son Heung-min from Bayer Leverkusen for just £22m. Son has been nothing short of prolific for Tottenham over the past seven seasons and his relationship with Harry Kane consistently reaps dividends. Now 29 years old, Heung Min-Son is at the peak of his powers and will be desperate to lift some silverware at this stage of his career with Tottenham.
Club captain Hugo Lloris signed for Tottenham from Lyon in 2012 and has been an integral part of the Spurs squad ever since. Mauricio Pochettino made Lloris captain in the summer of 2015, and the Frenchman has held the position ever since. Although he is yet to win any silverware at Tottenham, Lloris has lifted the World Cup with the French National Team.
Centre back Eric Dier will always divide opinion amongst the Spurs faithful. He has been somewhat inconsistent during his Spurs tenure, but I believe some of that is down to the revolving management door at the football club. Dier appears to be thriving under Antonio Conte and is key to the side’s defensive prowess.
Cristian Romero signed for Tottenham in the summer, but has unfortunately been out injured for some of the season. Now fit and available for first team duties, Romero’s quality is clear of all to see. The Argentinian is still young and raw, but he is slowly gaining experience of what Premier League football entails, and he looks set to be a permanent fixture at Tottenham for many years to come.
