The stars encourage luck under Mourinho
There will be players at Tottenham looking to prove a point to head coach Jose Mourinho now that training has resumed at Hotspur Way.
Spurs Football.london correspondent Alasdair Gold has selected seven members of the team to play the remaining nine games in the campaign and next season.
First, Alasdair chooses Tanguy Ndombele, along with Mourinho who would have been impressed by the work of the French midfielder during the lockdown, in the midst of his attempt to improve his physical condition.
He also chooses young Irish striker Troy Parrott, saying the teen will want to convince Mourinho that he deserves more opportunities in a Spurs jersey.

Alasdair believes Argentinian international Juan Foyth must prove that he can trust him, while writing that young Oliver Skipp could become Scott McTominay’s next Mourinho style project.
Defenders Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez are two other journalists selected, as well as Ryan Sessegnon, who, according to the summer, will make every effort to strengthen himself as a defender.

Local talent could alleviate European problems
Clubs participating in the Champions League are only allowed to register 17 locally untrained players in their 25-player team – which could give Jose Mourinho a headache.
Former boss Mauricio Pochettino had the same problem, the Argentinian being devastated to leave Juan Foyth in early 2018 after Lucas Moura arrived from Paris Saint-Germain.
If the Spurs qualify for European competition next season, Mourinho could make things easier by bringing in local players, writes Rob Guest of the football.
Tottenham during the break
Rob suggested bringing in Queens Park Rangers forward Eberechi Eze, Norwich City right-back, Max Aarons, Liverpool midfielder who will soon be out of contract Adam Lallana, midfielder from Leeds United Kalvin Phillips and loan from Leeds Brighton and Hove Albion, semi-center of Ben White.
“Magnificent” attack is a welcome boost for Spurs
The return of the quartet Moussa Sissoko, Steven Bergwijn, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane has given Jose Mourinho a boost, according to Rob Guest of football.london.

He points out that this week was the first time Kane and Bergwijn have been on the training ground together since the Dutchman’s transfer to the club in late January.
Rob explains that Mourinho has not yet been able to unleash a forward three from Bergwijn, Son and Kane, writing that “Kane with Bergwijn and Son on either side of him has all the ingredients for a” magnificent “attack, which could prove to be the difference between the Champions League and Europa League football once the action of the league finally resumes.
