Albeit Tottenham Hotspurs have been one of the most entertaining teams to see in England for the last couple of seasons, it seems like the Spurs are not having a good time in the domestic league right now. Tottenham has only won one of their last four games in Premier League, leaving the second position on the leaderboard, ranking fifth in the League at this very moment.

Following their draw against West Bromwich last weekend, the #North London side faced Leicester City on Tuesday with many expectations, trying to finally get the victory after having troubles in Wembley last Saturday and losing the London derby at the Emirates Stadium displaying really bad shape during the game.

As we know, Leicester is not the same team that won the League a couple of seasons ago and somehow this matchup looked very favourable for Mauricio Pochettino and his squad. But at the end, Jamie Vardy took the reins of his team alongside Riyad Mahrez and gave the victory to the Foxes who now are eager to reach European positions while Tottenham is still trying to figure out what to do in order to come back to the title run –even though it looks nearly impossible right now.

This loss arrived at the worst possible moment for the Spurs and now not only Poch or his players are worried about the current situation of the club, but also the fans, who have manifested his discontent with the performances of the team in League, contrary to what happens in Europe, where Kane, Alli, and company played like a five-star team.

The Lilywhites were expected to have a better moment at this point of the season and still be fighting to be a great competitor for the top spots. However, now seeing their latest results, this appears to be harder than already thought. That’s why many people wonder what is next for the team? How can this be fixed in the short term? Let’s take a look.

What’s next for Tottenham?

This Saturday, Spurs are going to clash against Watford at Vicarage Road where they will try to get back on the victory road in front of a team who is also trying to reach the European spots and lost on Tuesday to Manchester United, receiving four goals. Two teams who are hungry for wins and good performances fighting for three vital points.

Plus, next Wednesday they receive Apoel Nicosia in Wembley, closing what has been a marvellous group stage for Tottenham, against the weakest rival of the group following big wins facing both Real Madrid at home and Borussia Dortmund in Germany. Following that, the journey could be a little bit easier for the team since most fans think this pothole is due to excessive activity of the team and the lacking of rotations by the Argentinean boss.

Could there be a solution for them?

The good news for the team is that Erik Lamela already made his comeback to the pitch and the Argentinean midfielder can become a really good replacement for the team when they need some help from the bench. Erik came back after 13 months out of the field and immediately made an impact, assisting Harry Kane in the goal that settled the final result of the game.

Besides, the Winter transfer window is around the corner and various reports indicate that Tottenham could be landing some promising players such as Richarlison, who curiously will face them this weekend. Tottenham needs depth if they still want to compete both in England and overseas, but now it’s all up to the front office to decide what’s best for the club and the right direction to take in order to be considered a real contender again. #bad situation #Tottenham Hotspurs
