A star last season, this Spurs star now looks surplus.

Tottenham’s recent history of coming close but ultimately missing out on the Champions League continued last season, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men finishing fifth in the Argentine’s first campaign as the club’s manager.As a leader in the market, we take pride in being the cheapest place to buy Cheap NHL 16 Coins. The cheaper price brings more business. Therefore, price of NHL 16 MUT Coins on our store is cheaper than others.

Looking back on a season that promised so much but ultimately petered out, one of the most encouraging aspects from the on-pitch action was a new central midfield partnership.

Spurs have lacked a duo in the boiler room to take on the Premier League’s elite, with a host of players signed with expectation only to leave the club.

Benjamin Stambouli, Etienne Capoue, Paulinho, Lewis Holtby and others have all been shown the door in recent times, but in Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb it looked like the North Londoners finally had a winning formula.

Mason’s drive forward from the centre of the park and energy at both ends of the pitch was complemented by Bentaleb’s aggression and positional discipline, in an encouraging sign for the White Hart Lane faithful.

Such was the duo’s perceived influence, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho openly admitted to deploying enforcer Kurt Zouma in the centre of midfield in last season’s Capital One Cup final in an effort to nullify their influence.

Bentaleb in particular looked like a leader of men; a player that had come through the ranks and proven that he could be a top performer for Spurs for years to come. A new five-year contract was offered to and accepted by the Algeria international, who was widely expected to progress this season with more experience under his belt.
