THBN has hammered on what is required to play amongst teams in the UEFA Champions League and Premier League.

The person behind the blog has said he knows the demands it places on players and the advantages of not having European football affecting the concentration given to the England Premier League challenges.

Recovery time is top priority in the scientific world of football we live in. Players no longer suffer from burn out as their body readings are taken every day and their game time managed accordingly. It takes 48 hours for the body to fully recover from a match of football and that is delayed where travelling is involved.

“Liverpool are the same as Chelsea, they have qualified players who give enough energetic performances. Their recovery between games is vital and that is an advantage for them,” The blogger posted. “I think Tottenham are as good as Liverpool, I think Tottenham are as good as Chelsea, there is no doubt, but because Spurs are in European competition I would put Chelsea and Liverpool ahead of them in the Premier League for that reason only.”

It is understood by THBN that most of the times, it is encouraging to know that the best pundit on TV, places Spurs on a par with a team like Chelsea, as they know they have not been in that position for quite a while. They have made giant strides under Pochettino, for years they were on a ledge above the rest, but below the top four summit unlike now. Now they are a part of that summit fighting for their place with relentless strength than usual.

Spurs are facing Bayer Leverkusen tomorrow in European Champions League without their key player, Toby Alderweireld who they lost to an injury during their 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion in EPL.
