OK, now the new Premier League season can begin. Tottenham Hotspur’s World Cup stars are expected to finally report back to Hotspur Way to begin training for the start of the new league season, which begins this Saturday at Newcastle United.
That means we’ll finally start to see training photos that feature Harry Kane, Dele, Eric Dier, Kieran Trippier, and Danny Rose (England), as well as Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele, and Toby Alderweireld (Belgium).
And of course, World Cup champion Hugo Lloris. Spurs already posted a short video of him walking into Spurs’ training grounds this morning.
What we don’t know is whether any of them will actually play against Newcastle this weekend. Five days isn’t a lot of time to get match fit and ready to go for the Premier League season, although you could argue that even with a few weeks vacation it won’t take much for them to get back into top form, considering they’ve basically been playing football all summer.
We also don’t know what the status of Mousa Dembele, Danny Rose, and Toby Alderweireld is yet, as all are linked away from Tottenham and the transfer window closes on Thursday.
But for now, let’s enjoy this moment. Tottenham’s best players are back with the club, and everything seems just a little better than it did yesterday.
