Premier League: Six-horse race for the title? (6)

Tottenham Hotspur

What a difference a summer makes. Despite last season looking for so long like an excellent one for the north London outfit, Spurs choked right at the end of the season as they handed over a fourth place that they had held for the majority of the season and therefore Champions League qualification to fiercest rivals Arsenal.

And this was with an unstoppable Gareth Bale, who won the PFA Young Player of the Year, the PFA Players' Player of the Year and the FWA Footballer of the Year awards at a canter. 

But Bale has now gone and it's a new start at White Hart Lane. Following his star man's lengthy departure, Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has sparked a revolution at the club after spending nearly £105m on seven new exciting signings.

The purchase of Roma star Erik Lamela for £30m looks to be the pick of the bunch although adding a much needed striker in Roberto Soldado could boost Spurs to the next level.

Like Manchester City, a lot of AVB's recruits are new to the Premier League and may take time to settle and adjust to each other and the league they are in. AVB himself is still learning the league and although this season looks to be a supremely exciting one for the north Londoners, a title challenge is perhaps a little too premature.

If all goes well this year though, Spurs could be an even greater force next season. Before thinking about higher levels, Spurs' fans will be more concerned about finishing above Arsenal for the first time since the 1994/5 season.
