With four different league champions (assuming Leicester City go on and win the title) over the last four years, it would be ill-mannered to use anything from this season as a barometer for the next.

On top of being the fittest team in the Premier League, Spurs also possess the youngest squad in the division. Key players such as Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen and Eric Lamela are all under 25 years old and have some distance to go before their peak.
Moreover, Spurs' young core will have benefited from experiencing their first title run-in, and their disappointment will be the driving force behind their title push next season.
Despite the fact that manager Mauricio Pochettino has not won anything in his short managerial career, his stock is at an all-time high.
The manner which he got rid of the dead weight, implemented his vision and improved the Spurs team has been lauded by the footballing community. Apart from the apparent interest from Manchester United, Pochettino has also recently be linked to French super club Pairs Saint-Germain.
With no shortage of suitors, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will have his work cut out to keep the in-demand Argentine at White Hart Lane.
With the bumper TV deal in effect next season and clubs more likely to splash the cash, the Premier League is set to be even more competitive next season. With the new money, however, it could see Spurs strengthen their already strong squad.
