Despite failing to bring in any transfers last summer, Tottenham find themselves not only in a title race, but also remain in all competitions at the turn of the year. That’s no mean feat considering the difficulty of their Champions League group, and you wonder if that had brought in any talent at the start of the season, what position would they be in now?
You have the ability to correct that on FIFA 19’s Career Mode, and if you do bring in one or two world class stars, you could turn Spurs into not only a heavyweight in England, but one to be feared across Europe.
Spurs claim a five star rating on FIFA 19, consisting of an 89 attack, 82 midfield and 82 defence.
Under Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs tend to utilise a 4-2-3-1 wide formation, which is their default on FIFA 19. You should look to stick to this, with 4-3-3, 4-1-2-1-2 and a 3-5-2 other options if you wish to experiment in pre-season. It’s the team you would expect to lineup for Spurs too. Reliable goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (92 GK reflexes) is behind a back four of Kieran Trippier, Toby Alderweireld, the solid Jan Vertonghen (90 marking) and Ben Davies.
Eric Dier partners Moussa Dembele in defensive midfield, whilst chief creator Christian Eriksen (91 short passing), Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son operate behind marksman Harry Kane (94 finishing). On the bench go for Michel Vorm, Davinson Sanchez, Danny Rose, Victor Wanyama, Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Fernando Llorente.
