It’s kit number day! Tottenham Hotspur have released their first team squad numbers today on social media, and while there are few surprises, there is one significant number change.

Kieran Trippier, who took over as the first choice right back for Tottenham after the departure of Kyle Walker, assumes Walker’s vacant #2 shirt, switching from the #16 shirt that he wore last season.

Here’s Tottenham’s tweet about the kit numbers:

And if that video went by a little fast for you, here’s a breakdown of all of the registered player shirt numbers.

Tottenham Hotspur 2017-18 shirt numbers

Number Player
Number Player
1 Hugo Lloris
2 Kieran Trippier
3 Danny Rose
4 Toby Alderweireld
5 Jan Vertonghen
7 Son Heung-Min
9 Vincent Janssen
10 Harry Kane
11 Erik Lamela
12 Victor Wanyama
13 Michel Vorm
14 Georges-Kevin N'Koudou
15 Eric Dier
17 Moussa Sissoko
19 Mousa Dembele
20 Dele Alli
23 Christian Eriksen
27 Kevin Wimmer
29 Harry Winks
33 Ben Davies
37 Kyle Walker-Peters
38 Cameron Carter-Vickers

A couple of observations:

  1. Harry Winks still hasn’t embraced his destiny and switched to the #40 shirt. Come on, Winksy.
  2. Interesting that we don’t have a #6 or #8 shirt on the squad right now. You have to think that one of those shirts will eventually go to Keita Balde Ross Barkley. (This would also be a more interesting list if we had new players hint hint hint)
  3. Last year’s released list also included a bunch of academy kids and youth teamers that were given first team numbers but whom rarely played, like Luke Amos, Alfie Whiteman, and Marcus Edwards. Those aren’t included this time, but one presumes they probably all still have numbers.
