Nacer Chadli has four of Tottenham's eight goals (six games) to start the season.

Chadli's most important goal of his career to date was washed away when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain equalized for Arsenal in the North London Derby this past weekend. Nevertheless, Chadli has rightfully earned a spot in Mauricio Pochettino's starting XI. He's the leading scorer on a top 10 team who'll need continued production from him if the rest of his supporting cast keeps coming up dry. He's in form and looks to be progressing. Add him to your Yahoo Fantasy PL team while his price is still fairly reasonable.

Younes Kaboul was everywhere clearing balls, intercepting passes and providing a physical presence as Spurs managed a draw despite enjoying very little possession at the Emirates.

It was Nacer Chadli that got the goal from an Erik Lamela assist (from a terrible Mathieu Flamini error) and Hugo Lloris that provided the highlight reel save but it was Kaboul who kept showing up to blunt Arsenal attacks before they could cause any danger. The site of Kaboul heading a ball away or bodying Danny Welbeck off of a chance seemed to pop up on the screen at every critical juncture during the match.

Tottenham came from behind to knock Championship leaders Nottingham Forest out of the Capital One Cup.

Tottenham were rotten for 60 minutes as Nottingham Forest's team of youngsters outplayed their opponents before taking a deserved lead to shock White Hart Lane. The set-back forced Mauricio Pochettino in to three substitutions - bringing on Ryan Mason, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane - and all three had an impact. Firstly, young Mason stuck a fine goal from distance before Roberto Soldado scored with an instinctive finish, diverting Andros Towsend's shot in to the net to put Spurs ahead. In injury time, Lamela played a cute ball through to Kane who slotted home to complete a 3-1 victory. The result ends a run of four games without a win, but there is a far tougher test lying in wait at the Emirates on Saturday.

Tottenham picked a bad day to put on a poor display, dropping all the points at home to a weak West Bromwich Albion side who managed to grab a goal in the latter stages and beat Spurs 0-1.

Fantasy Premier League managers around the globe are pulling clumps of hair out after this result, as a home game to West Brom looked to be an environment in which the Spurs attack could display the best they have to offer. Instead, what they came up with was a side lacking the creativity or sense of urgency needed to get a goal on the board, especially from a normally reliable Eriksen. One big defensive mistake in leaving a man unmarked on a free kick is what caused them to come out completely empty-handed. Playing Arsenal next week, Mauricio Pochettino better pull a tactical rabbit out of his hat should he expect any kind of positive result.

Nacer Chadli's goal vs Sunderland gives the midfielder three goals in his last three matches and the goal-scoring lead among all players at Tottenham heading into a Week 5 matchup vs West Brom.

After missing out on the team's opening match at West Ham, Chadli has three goals in 227 minutes over the last three games. A pretty impressive accomplishment early on given the fact that he only had one goal in 1,452 total minutes all of last season. With 18 points this past week in Yahoo Fantasy's Premier League game, the midfielder now has 46 points on the season, five shy of the team's top player Eric Dier.

Tottenham dominated Sunderland but were unfortunate to concede a Harry Kane own goal late in the match and come out with only one point.

According to Michael Caley's Twitter account, Spurs had 1.7 expected goals to Sunderland's 0.3. Expected goals is an advanced metric which measures the number of goals a team is expected to score based on quality and quantity of shots and chances. Tottenham were great in midfield with Moussa Dembele helping them control the match. Spurs' two goals both came from midfield as Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen got on the score sheet. They are lacking finishing from the striker position and will have to wonder if maybe Roberto Soldado can help them once he returns from injury.

Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado is very doubtful for this weekend's match against Sunderland.

The forward is dealing with a back and neck injury and is almost certainly ruled out. Soldado hasn't started a game for Tottenham yet this season and has only made one appearance off the bench. During his absence, Emmanuel Adebayor has started all three Premier League matches and Harry Kane was come in off the bench late in games. We are not excited about Soldado's near term fantasy appeal.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is close to agreeing a new contract after 'positive' talks with the club, his agent has told Sky Sports.

Barcelona were linked with a move for the defender over the summer, but he was very positive about his future with Spurs in recent interviews and his agent is now suggesting that Vertonghen plans to follow Hugo Lloris by signing a new five-year contract. However, according to the agent the 27-year-old Belgium international could reassess his position if Tottenham fail to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Erik Lamela scored a wonderful goal as Argentina thrashed World Champions Germany 4-2 in an international friendly.

There are signs that this is going to be a much improved season for Lamela. A promising performance against QPR in Week 2 of the Premier League showed off some of the winger's talents, and this goal suggests he's feeling confident and sharp. 22-year-old Lamela found things tough going against Liverpool in Week 3 as Spurs were outplayed but he should remain on your fantasy radar for next weekend's match against Sunderland, and beyond.

Spurs and England full-back Kyle Walker has undergone "lower abdominal surgery" in an attempt to cure an ongoing pelvic problem.

The Tottenham defender last played competitively over five months ago and was said to be close to a return to first team action with new coach Mauricio Pochettino even confirming he would undergo a late fitness on the eve of this season’s opener at West Ham. However the club have now decided following further specialist assessment that Walker will have a surgical procedure to correct the issue with no timescale given on his return. With news that Eric Dier has withdrawn from the England Under-21 squad today due to injury Tottenham are now sweating on the fitness of their new signing with only Kyle Naughton available as a potential replacement.

Lewis Holtby has officially been loaned out by Tottenham Hotspur to Bundesliga side Hamburg SV on a year long deal.

The move comes as little surprise as rumors of this very deal surfaced last week and Holtby is too young and promising a player to bee spending the majority of his season on Mauricio Pochettino's bench. Holtby was loaned out to Fulham last January in an effort to help the Cottagers avoid relegation but had little impact as Felix Magath chose several times not to select the talented midfielder for a squad begging for talent. He should fair better in his home country this time around.

Tottenham have signed midfielder Benjamin Stambouli from Montpellier.

Stambouli is a very solid defensive midfielder and comes after Tottenham were trashed by Liverpool over the weekend. He should help a struggling defense this season and is a great signing by Spurs. Fantasy wise, Stambouli is not one for the credible fantasy manager. He only has three goals in 112 matches with Montpellier and doesn't produce enough attacking stats to make himself fantasy relevant.

Tottenham's positive start to the season hit a stone wall today as they were outclassed on their own ground by Liverpool, 0-3, continuing their struggles against the Reds.

An anticipated test for Spurs did not go as hoped for Mauricio Pochettino, as a familiar pest in Raheem Sterling gave Liverpool the early advantage that would not be relinquished. Spurs were in it in the first half and the match looked as if it could go either way to start the 2nd frame, but a soft penalty was awarded when Eric Dier grabbed Joe Allen's shirt while the Red midfielder was in the box, and Allen collapsed to earn a spot kick which was converted by Steven Gerrard. That two goal cushion turned a close match into a walk in the park for Liverpool for the game's remainder. A sobering wakeup call for Spurs, they must learn something from this and come back strong when they visit Sunderland in Week 4.

Mauricio Pochettino's winning start as Tottenham manager continued as they thrashed AEL Limassol to clinch their place in the Europa League group stage.

That's four wins out of four games for Pochettino, and this victory was achieved while giving many key players a rest ahead of the match with Liverpool on Sunday. Harry Kane missed an early penalty but scored the opening goal on the stroke of half-time, before a Paulinho goal and Andros Townsend penalty made it 3-0 for a comfortable 5-1 aggregate win.

Tottenham have signed defender Federico Fazio from Sevilla on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Fazio was highly rated in La Liga, has won two caps for Argentina and won the Europa League with Sevilla last season. The central-defender has been brought in to replace Michael Dawson and will compete with Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches for the right to partner first choice Jan Vertonghen in the heart of the Tottenham back-line.
