Premier League: Tottenham’s hopes for 2024/25

Ange Postecoglou witnessed first-hand the highs and lows life in the Premier League brings in his first campaign and now the focus has already switched to the 2024/25 season.

Missing out on the Champions League places after such a strong start to the season was a disappointment but there should be optimism heading into the next campaign.

Settled Spurs must take advantage

With the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool both having new managers for the start of next season, it might take two title contenders time to adapt to a new man in the dugout.

Spurs on the other hand have come through their transitional phase, with Postecoglou taking the job last year after his move from Scottish champions Celtic.

That continuity should play in Tottenham’s favour, as they look to replicate the strong start they enjoyed at the beginning of the 2023/24 campaign.

Of course, when it comes to the Premier League title, Manchester City will be the ones to beat.

Having won the title for the last four years, manager Pep Guardiola could be set for his last season at the Etihad Stadium before his contract expires.

City will have to be wary of the pressure that comes with trying to give their manager the perfect send-off, with Liverpool struggling to cope at the end of last season when Jurgen Klopp confirmed he would be leaving Anfield.

Still, Manchester City are the favourites at 1.90 to win the Premier League title in potentially Guardiola’s last season in England.

Postecoglou’s Spurs are the seventh favourites head of the new campaign to lift the trophy for the first time in their history at 34.00.

Fierce battle for the top four

The top four in the Premier League used to be a foregone conclusion but the rise of other clubs has meant the battle to finish in those coveted Champions League spots is as fierce as ever.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United used to be regular visitors to Europe’s elite club competition but the emergence of City as a force disrupted the established order.

Tottenham, Newcastle United and most recently Aston Villa, have also qualified for the Champions League, meaning eight teams are realistically competing for just four places.

Having missed out on the Champions League in his first season, Postecoglou will be determined to land a top-four finish next term, with Spurs available in the market at 3.00.

With another pre-season under his belt and a summer transfer window that should see Spurs strengthen, Postecoglou’s side should certainly be in the mix for the top four and in contention to win domestic silverware.
