Rafael Benitez has worked with limited resources this summer after masterfully guiding Newcastle to PL safety and a top half finish last season.
Mauricio Pochettinho and Spurs were the only PL team to not sign a single player during the summer transfer window but they kept hold of all of their big stars, even Dembele, Alderweireld and Rose who aren’t wanted.
