He has instilled hard work and organisational qualities among the members that has made the team creatively smart.
In the lights of players like Dally Alli, Harry Kane, Eriksen and Davis, Tottenham will aim to make its mark in Europe after having missed to do so in the last season.
Founded in 2009 with the support of drinks firm Red Bull, this Bundesliga team finished 2nd in the league and will be playing Champions’ League group stage. The midfielder Naby Keïta has been one of their best players since joining the club and has caught eyeballs of many European Elite clubs. Timo Werner netted 21 goals in the league and despite his age, he will be another player to watch in the Champions’ league.
After missing out from Champions League last season, Manchester United is set to make a return to the league they last saw in 2015-16. Although the last season was disappointing for them as they finished 6th in English Premier League, they compensated for it by wining Europa League which automatically confirmed their position in Champions League group stage.
This season, with the addition of Romelu Lukaku upfront and liberty and freedom for Paul Pogba with the addition on Nemenja Matic as defensive midfielder, this Man Utd side looks complete and balanced, and will strive to make a mark in the Champions League.
