The Wales international centre back has had a slow start to life in London,  making seven Premier League appearances for Tottenham Hotspur.  

The bright spark has begun slowly breaking into the team, showing great potential that he is one to watch for the future

After spending the 2019/20 season on loan at Sevilla FC in La LigaReal Madrid made the decision to allow the defender to leave Spain and head for London

Since then, Reguilón has had a great start to life in North London, featuring 20 times and contributing with five assists in all competitions. 

It is still early in the 24-year-old's career, but he has already made an impact on the team showing he has a lot to offer.

In 2013, Gareth Bale left London for Real Madrid. In 2020, he made his return to Tottenham on loan for the season.

There was a lot of excitement surrounding the re-signing of the right-winger, but it is safe to say so far his signing has been underwhelming.

Only time will tell how the rest of the season goes, but if Bale can manage it without injury, he could be the difference Spurs need on the right side. 

  • Matt Doherty  

After a great season with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Doherty made the transfer to Spurs in the summer. He has had his fair share of ups and downs so far. 

Since joining the team, Serge Aurier has improved his game making it harder for the Republic of Ireland defender to break into the team. Doherty’s lack of regular game time was not helped by his red card in the late stages of the game against Leeds United

Doherty has tough competition from Aurier and needs to continue improving to become a regular part of Mourinho’s plan. 

  • Carlos Vinícus 

Carlos Vinícus is the second striker Spurs fans have been crying out for, and after securing his signature on loan from S. L. Benfica in the summer, the team had the ability to rely on star marksman Harry Kane less. 

Since joining, the majority of his minutes have come in cup competitions, but in those he has contributed with six goals and three assists. Vinicius could find a way into the team with Kane injured, but he is yet to start a league game. 


  • Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 

Hojbjerg has been one of the players of the season so far for Spurs and arguably could be the best of their summer signings.  

He has been involved in every minute of every league game so far this season and the midfielder has one goal and two assists to his name.

The midfielder has proven his strength and aggression, evident when he wanted to continue the match after being on the receiving end of a nasty tackle against Brentford F.C in the Carabao Cup.

  • Joe Hart 

The 33-year-old goalkeeper became a free agent at the end of last season and joined Spurs.  

Making eight appearances since joining the club, he is adding to the home-grown player quota. However, all of his appearances have come in cup competitions.

Hart is in the latter stages of his career but aiming to help his new club win a trophy for the first time since 2008.
