Chairman Daniel Levy has overseen a net spend of just £7million while Manchester City have blown a shocking £270m on a squad that needs another giant overhaul.
Manchester United have splurged £153m to fight for fourth and the Europa League and even Arsenal have blown £97m on a season that looks to end with sixth spot.
Incredibly, over two seasons, Spurs have conceded just 57 goals so far and lost just nine games, they have also won the most but a glut of draws have let them down.

Star striker Harry Kane has scored 46 goals in 64 Premier League appearances, over the last two seasons, and Dele Alli has 27 from 66 from midfield.
