Tottenham Hotspur will restart their 2020/21 campaign this weekend as the Premier League gets back underway. The Lilywhites are supposed to face West Ham on Sunday, with Jose Mourinho hoping to continue his side’s winning run.
And here, at The 4th Official, we will take a look at three things every Tottenham fan must look forward to this weekend.
Can Tottenham Seal Their First Home Win?
Tottenham Hotspur, despite sitting pretty in the top half of the Premier League table, are yet to secure a single win at home in the Premier League this season. They have failed to win both their games in north London, losing 1-0 to Everton in the opening fixture before drawing 1-1 with Newcastle United in the third game.
Spurs’ awful home record has reflected poorly on the club’s overall tally as it means they have already lost four points. Brilliant displays have saved them against Southampton and Manchester United in the two away fixtures.
But the Lilywhites will soon need to find their winning formula at home if they are to compete for a top-four finish this season and on Sunday they will have the opportunity to do just that as they host West Ham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Gareth Bale’s Return To The Pitch
Gareth Bale raised a lot of eyebrows this summer by returning to Tottenham Hotspur, albeit on a season-long loan deal. Unfortunately, the Real Madrid forward is yet to make a single appearance for Mourinho’s men due to an injury.
Bale also did not feature for Wales during the ongoing international break. He has, however, returned to team training for Spurs, just ahead of the West Ham game on Sunday.
There is, in fact, a possibility that Bale might start against the Hammers. But even if he doesn’t, the Welshman is almost guaranteed to feature as a second-half substitute, which will be a treat for all Tottenham fans.
Can Tottenham Seal The Signing Of Joe Rodon?
While the transfer market might be over in the majority of the top league across Europe, the domestic market in England is still open until 16th October.
Tottenham, as a result, have been linked with a move for Joe Rodon. The Swansea City defender has been eyed as a potential replacement for Juan Foyth, who joined Villarreal on loan earlier this summer.
Rodon has shown a lot of quality in the Championship, and it will be interesting to see whether Spurs can acquire his services before the deadline, as Mourinho looks forward to having more options in the defensive department.
