Tottenham dropped second in the Premier League, Mourinho easily overthrew Liverpool? (Part 1)

Tottenham has risen to second place in the Premier League and is capable of winning the throne of Liverpool.

Tottenham won a rather strenuous 2-1 victory over Brighton thanks to a Gareth Bale goal, scoring after he came on from the bench just over 2 minutes. With a victory over an opponent that has made it difficult for nearly every team they have met since the start of the season, Spurs have now taken second place and are behind defending champions Liverpool by 2 points.

Tottenham this season still has bad matches, from being beaten by Everton to losing points to West Ham and Newcastle. But there is the fact that after 7 rounds, they are scoring the most in the Premier League while 9 goals are not too bad (the team that conceded the least, Arsenal, also conceded 7 goals).

Premier League 2020/21 will be a volatile season because the Covid-19 makes the schedule of this season more intense, the European Cup teams have to try to play in 3-4 fronts at the same time and because They have to rotate the formation. This season the injury situation has increased significantly while the big teams have shown more or less fatigue and the rule of replacing five reserves has been dropped, some clubs like Everton or Aston Villa have risen to the top although They are not really special about the gameplay yet.

In the context of that a surprise Leicester City 2015/16 style championship is entirely possible, the only question is whether Tottenham can do it. This season they have added a lot of quality players and have considerable depth in the attack line, plus the high form of the key players.

The depth factor is the most remarkable because Tottenham cannot always rely on 1-2 individuals to create mutations in every match. Harry Kane and Son Heung Min have been in very good form since the beginning of the season, but against Brighton, Son proved quite quiet while Kane did not have many opportunities. Tottenham still won thanks to Gareth Bale’s presence on the field.
