Despite the recent 1-0 loss to fierce rivals, Arsenal, Tottenham can potentially recover quickly from their loss and bounce back to become a threat in the Premier League and other domestic competitions.

Spurs currently lie in sixth place, behind fifth place Stoke City, and fourth place Arsenal, who are both currently beating the Lillywhites through goals scored.

Here are five reasons why Spurs can win silverware this season.

A manager with great team tactics

Manager Andre Villas-Boas is excellent at getting the best out of his players, as shown by the rise of Gareth Bale last season.

The 35-year-old manager is hoping he can do the same with Tottenham's new signings, including Erik Lamela. In addition to this, Villas-Boas is a great tactician and can really help Spurs surge on to glory if his players approach his tactics in the right manner.

The defensive approach Spurs have portrayed so far this season has appeared to be promising, whilst there are also some glimpses of Tottenham's pleasing attacking display, though this does need to be worked on.

Players with a world-class ability

Despite losing star player Gareth Bale this summer, Tottenham have brought in numerous reinforcements, consisting of Nacer Chadli, Etienne Capoue, Paulinho, Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, and Vlad Chiriches.

Lamela and Eriksen are only 21-years of age, and already produce top notch performances in Europe. They can both be influential players in Spurs' campaign this year, and may nicely fill the void left by Bale.

In addition to this, Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris has vital defensive players for Spurs, and have proved to be one of the best in their respective positions in the league.

They now have a proven prolific goalscorer

In recent seasons, Spurs have failed to score a lot of goals, due to strikers Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor not being the talisman that the Lilywhites needed.

However, Spurs finally invested in a proven goalscorer with the £26m purchase of Spaniard Roberto Soldado. The striker has a promising goalscoring record, and has netted four goals in all competitions for Spurs so far this season. Soldado has also been reported to have said that he is aiming for 20+ goals this season. 

A master-act midfield

Spurs have been known to have a great midfield for the past couple of seasons, but their reinforcements this summer may have taken their midfield to another level.

Spurs sold central midfield trio, Scott Parker, Jake Livermore, and Tom Huddlestone, in order to opt for a promising duo of Etienne Capoue, and Paulinho. Both players have impressed so far at Tottenham.

As well as their strengthening in the central midfield department, Spurs have also bolstered their team by clinching the signing of goal-scoring winger Erik Lamela, and playmaker Christian Eriksen.

Both players have the potential to add another creative dimension to the side. Tottenham also recruited Nacer Chadli to strengthen their options on the wing. It is safe to say that Spurs have a master act midfield as the likes of Mousa Dembele, Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Lewis Holtby are the type of players to be benched due to the other superior midfielders.

They have traded a Champions League player for a Champions League team

In effect, Spurs traded an elite Champions League worthy player for a Champions League worthy team, with a total of eight solid reinforcements brought into the club.

The players brought in have plenty of European experience, and are a good set of footballing individuals. The next couple of Spurs training sessions will prove to be crucial to the new signings, as they hope to gel as a team as quickly as possible.

Players such as Paulinho and Christian Eriksen were the subject of interest from Champions League teams, but turned them down in order to play for ambitious side Tottenham.

The team as a whole have an incredible footballing ability, and still have many relatively young players, meaning that they still have plenty of time to develop. Tottenham's club transfer record was smashed three times this summer, conveying the fact that Spurs have clinched some Champions League worthy players.

This will be an exciting season for Spurs coming ahead, should the team manage to gel together quickly.
