Tottenham have gone all out this summer, spending upwards of £90m, but will all of these new faces work in the Premier League?
The reoccurring problem with football is that when some teams spend big, their new players find it hard to gel together.
Tottenham had a lot of quality in depth, however, Andre Villas-Boas has not been shy in flashing his cheque book this summer. Despite loosing Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, Spurs had a good chance of getting up into the top four this season, without any signings.
I may be wrong, however I think it will take a few games for the side to gel as a team, despite their convincing start to the season.
Tottenham face Arsenal on Sunday, in the north London derby, and this will be the first major test for the new-look team.
Arsenal, however, have done quite the opposite, buying only two players, both on free transfers. There is no doubt this fixture will be very competitive, but it will also be very close.
Tottenham have just confirmed the signing of Erik Lamela, for around £25 million, which adds to their list of transfers. Many people believe Lamela will be the replacement for Bale.
Can Tottenham fill the gap left by the Welshman?
