Big boys are back

With Juventus pair Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur’s deadline day arrivals lifting spirits somewhat, we look at how Spurs’ new recruits may fare in North London.

The only two teams who are in top-flight action this weekend are Burnley and Watford, taking the opportunity to play their postponed December clash with both already knocked out of the Cup.

We put new Clarets striker Wout Weghorst — the giant Dutchman who Sean Dyche will hope can fire his troops to safety — in the spotlight.
