Spurs squeezed into the top four on the final day of the season but are 4/6 to be playing Champions League football for a second successive campaign.

Antonio Conte’s side are 12/1 third favourites to be crowned Premier League champions.

Harry Kane finished behind Son Heung-min last season but is the 6/1 third favourite to win the Golden Boot for a fourth time.

Tottenham history

Founded in 1882 as Hotspur Football Club by a group of schoolboys and two years later it was renamed Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

Spurs have won the top division twice in their history and in 1901 became the only non-league club to win the FA Cup.

Their most successful period came under Bill Nicholson between 1958-74 during which he won eight major trophies in a 16-year spell.

Tottenham became the first club in the 20th century to win the Double (1960-61) and in 1962 they beat Leicester in the FA Cup final. A year later they won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup when Jimmy Greaves scored twice in a 5-1 victory over Atletico Madrid.

In the 1971-72 campaign, Spurs broke new ground by becoming the first British club to win separate European trophies, securing the inaugural UEFA Cup in a two-legged final against Wolves.

Nicholson resigned after a poor start to the 1974-75 season and the club were relegated a couple of years later under Keith Burkinshaw, who secured immediate promotion and built an entertaining team based around Glenn Hoddle and Argentinian duo Osvaldo Ardiles and Ricky Villa.

Burkinshaw won the FA Cup in back-to-back seasons (1980-81, 1981-82) and the 1984 UEFA Cup, but Spurs have generally struggled to emulate the Nicholson era despite a couple of League Cup triumphs in 1999 and 2008, the same year they announced plans to build a new stadium generally on the site of their old White Hart Lane ground.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was finally opened on April 3, 2019, when Spurs, who had been playing their home games at Wembley, christened their new ground in style with a 2-0 victory against Crystal Palace.

They have become regular fixtures in the Champions League in the last 10 years and surprisingly reached the final in the 2018-19 season which they lost to Liverpool.

Antonio Conte has now been entrusted to bring back the glory days and made a good start with a top-four finish in his first season in charge.
