Chelsea in shock move for Pochettino as Conte replacement

Premier League Tottenham Hotspur have extended their partnership with bookmakers William Hill in what the club says is a multi-year deal. To do so while playing at temporary home Wembley, where they had to contend with a staid atmosphere, an oversized pitch and last season's "curse", is particularly impressive.

"Without them, I don't think we'd get into the Champions League, we've done it because of them, because when we play good or bad they are always there for us and I really thank them for their unbelievable support this season." .

Jan Vertonghen. A special mention to prefects Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen but this season's Head Boy is undoubtedly the Belgian.

"It is a team game".

Vertonghen's only shaky match was Spurs' 2-2 draw at Juventus in the round-of-16 first leg. They play regularly in the starting XI. Of course we missed Jan and we missed Davinson (Sanchez). Seeing as Arsenal have finished outside the top four for only the second in Premier League history, the enormity of Tottenham's accomplishment can not be overlooked.

It would also be a controversial move for Pochettino to swap Spurs for London rivals Chelsea, and even if the Blues do try to tempt him away it seems unlikely he would make the move.

Spurs might not have the financial wiggle room at the moment to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United for the best players in the transfer market, much to Pochettino's disgruntlement.

The dramatic win, which was achieved despite the Foxes going 3-1 ahead, ensures Spurs finish third in the table, but the critics have once again sharpened their knives at Pochettino's failure to land a trophy.

He wants the club to "take risks and be brave" as they prepare for a third consecutive season in the Champions League.

Here's why finishing in the top four is excellent for Tottenham.

The Tottenham boss wants £100m and more from the sales of Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Mousa Dembele, Moussa Sissoko and Lucas Moura.
