The Big Six’s greatest weaknesses heading into the 2017/18 Premier League season

Tottenham Hotspur – No More White Hart Lane

Spurs were undefeated at home during Premier League play in their final season at White Hart Lane. In fact, they even avoided defeat during their four domestic cup matches at the stadium as well. As they transition to their new stadium, which is yet to be built, the north London outfit will play their upcoming home matches at Wembley Stadium. Although Spurs dominated at White Hart Lane, they were a shell of themselves when playing at Wembley during European matches in the 2016/17 season.

Tottenham lost two out of the three home games during the Champions League group stage, and were subsequently knocked out of the prestigious competition. After finishing third in their group, Spurs were then transferred to the Europa League, which they quickly bowed out of after a 2-2 draw at Wembley to Gent. The drastic difference between playing at White Hart Lane and Wembley was significant for Spurs last season. If they are to not only challenge, but win their first Premier League title this coming campaign, they are going to have to perform exceptionally well at Wembley.
