Tottenham's 2020/21 Premier League campaign got off to the worst possible start on Sunday afternoon.
Jose Mourinho's side were beaten 1-0 by Carlo Ancelotti's new-look Everton in north London and it was a woeful performance from the hosts.
Spurs looked bereft of ideas going forward and it's evident that the squad needs reinforcing if the club are to challenge for the top four this season.
Thankfully for fans, it appears as if the club and chairman Daniel Levy are looking to do just that, with reports stating that Spurs are closing in on the signings of Real Madrid pair Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon.
Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett told the BBC: "Gareth still loves Spurs. It's where he wants to be."
With that in mind, we've decided to draft up a very exciting Spurs XI that we could see come to fruition in 2020/21.
Spurs' potential starting XI for 2020/21
Just look at that front three, a trio of attacking players that are ideal for Mourinho's counter-attacking style.
In midfield we've made some slightly controversial choices, with Dele Alli, Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks all missing out.
Tanguy Ndombele's short cameo from the bench against Everton proved that he's easily Spurs' most talented midfielder and needs to be a regular starter at the club alongside the brilliant Giovani Lo Celso.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's debut against the Toffees was far from his finest hour, but he's the only proper holding midfielder in Mourinho's squad and is therefore a guaranteed starter.
The Danish midfielder's presence is also necessary to cover the gaps left by the attack-minded full-back duo of Reguilon and Matt Doherty.
All in all, it's a very exciting XI - on paper at least. The midfield trio is a mix of creativity and steel, while the front three need no introduction whatsoever.
The team is probably not quite good enough to challenge for the Premier League title, but there's no denying that it would raise some concerns among the rest of the division's elite.
Bale may have struggled at Real Madrid of late, but the guy is still one of the best players in the world - all he needs is a platform to thrive.
