Tottenham Hotspur under Mauricio Pochettino have been a revelation in the Premier League this season, despite it seeming likely they will miss out on winning the title after the 1-1 draw against West Brom on Monday.
Despite the disappointment, they are already planning for next season to come back stronger, and with some quality recruitments, they could go one step further this time next year.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have gone from strength to strength since the appointment of Jurgen Klopp – with the win against Borussia Dortmund at Anfield the highlight of their season so far.

Klopp has brought the Dortmund mould to Merseyside which is yielding results and the Reds hierarchy are optimistic of the future under the German boss.
However, with the 2015-16 season set to end in the coming weeks, clubs are preparing for summer acquisitions well ahead of their contemporaries and the Premier League duo are no different either.

Liverpool and Spurs are ready to go head-to-head for former Chelsea star Andre Schurrle, according to Goal.com.
The midfielder spent one-and-a-half seasons with the Blues and thereby is familiar with English style of play, but majorly he was on the fringes of the squad during his entire time in West London.
In spite of his reluctance to leave Chelsea, then manager Jose Mourinho, truncated his stay in the capital, selling him for £22million to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg in the January transfer window of 2015.
The move hasn’t turned out to be fruitful, however, as Schurrle has yet again failed to cement a first-team place at Volkswagen Arena and looks destined to leave in order to return to the English top-flight.
The 25-year-old is also a regular in the German national team and his versatility and work rate could be beneficial to whichever club wins the duel to sign him this summer.
Mainly playing on either wing, Schurrle can also operate as a secondary striker, scoring nine goals alongside assisting seven in 38 games in all competition for Wolfsburg this term, as claimed by Transfermarkt.com.
The German international is said to be unhappy in his homeland, given the limited opportunities he gets under head coach Dieter Hecking.
Moreover, Klopp inherited Brendan Rodgers’ squad but would want to add players that suit his methods and Schurrle fits that bill perfectly.
Spurs’ boss fielded the youngest side in the Premier League, managing to secure a top four finish, which speaks volumes of his abilities with youngsters in the team.
Schurrle still has time to develop further and moving back to England could be the progression where he could finally resurrect his career from next season and beyond.
