Another new coach at Tottenham was one of the only moves made for Spurs this season who were quiet in the transfer market. But the summer signings of 2013 are still bedding in Soldado, Lamela, Chadli andDembele will be looking for more impact from the start this season and new manager Pochettino has already set the bar high looking for a top four finish. With the squad Tottenham have there is no doubt that they could break into the top four although that may depend on how they do in the European competition. The winners of the Europa League get a spot in the Champions league next season and that makes the competition worth winning.
Sam Allardyce starts the season as West Ham boss but is one of the favourites to get the sack first. West ham have not strengthened significantly and will be missing Andy Carroll for a couple of months. With not many options up front West Ham Fans already look like they could be in for a long season. Jarvis, Morrisson and Carroll will all miss out tomorrow and it's had d to see where the threat will come from for west ham.

I am taking Tottenham to get the win in the first competitive game of Pochettino's time in charge. I just like what I have seen from Tottenham in the pre season and I think they can continue it into the season. Follow me on Twitter@antonpippo
