The last couple of weeks have been calamitous for Tottenham. From being touted as one of the potential title challengers for the Premier League trophy to currently slipping into sixth spot, the side has been all the glamour and laurels surrounding it vanish up in smoke.
Falling to defeat against clubs near to them, Tottenham have showed that they still have a long and bumpy road to traverse before they can be taken seriously in the title race.

Fantasy Team Picks
At a time when the goals have all but dried up for Stoke City, Josef Bursik has upped the ante. The goal-keeper has taken over the club’s backline, a player who has done well to compensate for his side’s powers up the park.
Tottenham have gone onto concede two in each of their last couple of defeats but that doesn’t faze us from opting for a trio from the club. The side is up against a Stoke City which has been left flummoxed when asked to conjure up goals.
This is the ideal opposition for Tottenham to revive their defensive gameplan against. A cleansheet looks like for the visiting team to see us opt for Matt Doherty, Eric Dier and Davison Sanchez.
He’s failed to leave a lasting or telling impact ever since his arrival at Tottenham but this could just be the tie for Steven Bergwijn to fill his shoes with the goals. He’s up against a dwindling Stoke City unit, a side he can easily fill his shoes with the goals.
Harry Winks and Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg from midfield will also be finding a place in our team from the club. The indomitable players are capable of transitioning the ball from defence to attack with ease.
We also have the two midfielders represent us from Stoke City in the form of James McClean and Nick Powell. The two are not only capable of doing the dirty work but also turning over possession from the back to front.
With 9 goals, striker Harry Kane looks set to get another outing for Tottenham today. Stoke City will meanwhile see striker Steven Fletcher be nailed in our unit owing to his ability to come up with peach of shots.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kane’s 9 goals and 10 assists see him captain our team while Bergwijn is the vice-captain.
Bursik, Sanchez, Dier, Doherty, Winks, James, Powell, Pierre, Steven, Kane, Fletcher
