Mauricio Pochettino's next task is to make Tottenham competitive in the Champions League and that won’t be easy if they are at Wembley next season.

Spurs struggled at Wembley in Europe this term. Their financial position means that if they are to sign a ‘wow’ player, they need to do so a year or two before he hits his peak, as Liverpool did when they bought Philippe Coutinho in 2013.

You’d back Spurs to beat Watford, even though Walter Mazzarri’s team have won their last two matches. Sometimes I think Watford need greater continuity, rather than changing their coach so often. But it works for them and they should stay up.

In England, perhaps we place too much importance on the idea of stability.
