For the past 3 seasons, Tottenham Hotspur has managed to secure a position in the top 5 spots of the English Premier League. Despite making so many consistent performances in every single season, they have struggled to actually emerge as the champions of England.
The last time that Tottenham Hotspur emerged as the best team in England was during the season of 1960-61 which is proof of just how difficult it has been for them to repeat that accomplishment.

If I’m Harry Kane, Dele Alli or Christian Eriksen, if there’s no competition behind, it’s normal to drop your motivation, it’s normal to drop everything that you do’’ Mauricio Pochettino said.

And he also never thought of playing England and selected at camp. He is only in Premiership from the start of the season and never thought of the progress, but now he is happy with that and don’t think anyone else can.
