Ledley King has admitted that the physical stature of the current Tottenham Hotspur squad really stands out to him. Tottenham have been extremely busy in terms of incomings in the summer transfer window so far, and none of the six players that have come through the door are lacking in height or physical strength. Antonio Conte has stressed the importance of signing players who can cope with the physical demands of the Premier League (Sky Sports), and King believes that playing against the current Spurs team could be quite intimidating for the opposition.
King also remarked that the six new faces who arrived at the club this summer should not have any trouble settling in quickly. When asked if having proven Premier League players is important, he added that it makes a difference but Kulusevski and Bentancur took to the PL straight away, they were excellent and played a big part in the team finishing the season in the top four.
The physicality and the intensity of the side we had between 2015-2017 under Pochettino was one of their greatest strengths. We often saw teams struggling to cope with the power and strength of our two full-backs (Rose and Walker) and the likes of Dembele and Wanyama in midfield. There is certainly a similar video to the current Spurs squad and they are arguably just as fit as that Pochettino side if not even fitter.
