Tottenham Hotspur

 By Ben Pearce

Tottenham have to be willing to adapt to opponents to improve

The ESPN FC crew react to Harry Kane's performance with Tottenham and debate whether he can keep his current football level.

Tottenham may have triumphed in their must-win encounter with Leicester on Saturday but, again, their latest outing largely served to underline how far this team has to go to become one of the Premier League's top sides.

Conceding three goals at Old Trafford is one thing. Conceding three goals at home against the bottom side, Leicester, is quite another.

Tottenham have now let in 45 goals in their 30 league games, an average of 1.5 per game. That is more than any other team in the top half of the...

Kevin Wimmer: Commanding centre-back could blossom at Tottenham

Kevin Wimmer has made 25 Bundesliga appearances for Cologne this season.

Background information:

Tottenham Hotspur have what is comfortably the worst defensive record in the top half of the Premier League. With backup options Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches contenders to depart this summer, it is therefore unsurprising that the club have been connected with a number of defensive reinforcements. The firmest link came last week, with reports that they had agreed a deal for Cologne centre-back Kevin Wimmer.

The 22-year-old was born in the city of Wels, in northern Austria,...

1. Tottenham still far away from being a contender

A game that showed why Harry Kane has been picked for England, why Tottenham Hotspur are still some way short of the top four, and why Leicester are now even more likely to be relegated.

The striker capped a fine individual performance by hitting his first hat trick in the Premier League, at least unless the Dubious Goals Panel take his second...

Hat-trick hero Harry Kane at it again as Spurs chase Champions League

Harry Kane scored a hat trick as Tottenham overcame Leicester 4-3 to boost their Champions League hopes.

Harry Kane celebrated his first call-up to the senior England squad with his first Premier League hat trick as Tottenham avoided a scare to overcome Leicester 4-3 at White Hart Lane.

Kane scored twice in the opening 13 minutes as Spurs threatened to unleash their frustrations after last week's dismal 3-0 defeat at Manchester United on Nigel Pearson's basement boys.

However, Spurs' defensive frailties undermined their efforts once again as they threw away their two-goal lead to let Leicester back...

Pochettino must rouse Tottenham as their season fades away

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino spoke ahead of his side's Premier League match against Leicester City about striker Harry Kane's England call-up.
England manager Roy Hodgson has attempted to dampen the hype surrounding Harry Kane, after handing the Tottenham striker his first England call-up.

When a team plays as poorly as Spurs did against Manchester United last Sunday, it forces you to sit up and take notice.

Was it a one-off bad day on which everything that could go wrong did go wrong? In almost every game there are one or two players who are slightly off the pace, but the rest of the team can paper over the cracks; when six or seven players have their worst match of the season, there's no way back.

Or was the Man United match a hint of things to come for the rest of the season? Spurs...

Tottenham's Champions League hopes dependent on fixing defence

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth breaks down Manchester United's comprehensive 3-nil triumph over Tottenham at Old Trafford.

The margin for error might be getting ever smaller, but Tottenham's top-four challenge is by no means over after their 3-0 defeat in Sunday's six-pointer at Manchester United.

Despite that latest blow, Spurs can look forward with a degree of confidence. They host basement boys Leicester at the weekend, while Liverpool and United go head to head, giving Spurs an immediate chance to close in on at least one of their rivals again.

There are no easy games, as the cliche goes, but six of Tottenham's last...
