Owen’s predictions for the 2023-24 Premier League standings were published on Friday (Aug. 5) by GiveMySport. Tottenham finished eighth in the Premier League last season, failing to qualify for the UEFA club competition for the first time since 2010.

GivmeSport commented on Owen’s Tottenham predictions, saying: ‘Spurs under Postecoglou are predicted to finish ninth. It will be interesting to see what Owen thinks about Kane’s stay or departure and how he predicts the rankings,” and “Postecoglou’s Spurs will try to play more attacking football.
Owen, a former England striker who played for Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Manchester United during his playing days, has praised Son’s skills at every opportunity. “If I was Manchester United, Manchester City or Liverpool and I could sign one player, it would be Son,” Owen said after Son was substituted in a couple of games early last season. “Kane scored a lot of goals, but he scored more goals last season,” he said, “He’s a difficult player to play against. You have to be patient with a top player. He’s been leading Tottenham for years. Everyone said Tottenham was a two-man team with Son and Kane. Some even pointed out that he was suddenly benched because he hadn’t scored in a few games.” Despite his high praise for Son, Owen predicts Spurs will struggle next season.
Tottenham are expected to struggle in the Premier League next season.
British soccer analytics outlet TFA predicted Spurs to finish ninth in the 2023-24 season. They said, “Under Postecoglou, Spurs will play attacking soccer. Postecoglou will play his style. But realistically, there are teams ahead of Spurs in the Premier League,” and “Kane’s move to Bayern Munich is likely. If Tottenham succeed in keeping Kane, ninth place will be an underachievement. However, if Kane leaves, Tottenham could find that ninth place is a generous assessment.
Despite the predictions that Spurs will struggle, expectations are high for Son Heung-min. TFA identifies Son as a key player for Tottenham, saying: “Son will be a key player for Tottenham in 2023-24 regardless of whether Kane stays or goes. If Kane leaves, Spurs will rely heavily on Son for goals. With an expected goal per game excluding penalties last season, Heung-min’s impact on Tottenham’s scoring is significant. Depending on how Postecoglou uses him, he could have a fruitful season.
‘It’s difficult to assess Tottenham in 2023-24 with Kane’s future unclear,’ said European soccer media outlet LiveScore, ‘but if Kane leaves, Son will likely take over as Tottenham’s penalty kicker next season. The Sun’s 2023-24 Premier League goalscorer odds have been released, and Son is among the top 10 favorites.
Son told the Daily Mail last month, “Every moment of last season was painful. It may sound strange, but every turn, run, pass, and kick affected me. I was fine on a normal day, but when I took to the pitch for warm-ups, I was frustrated by the pain. In the end, I decided to have the surgery after the season and I think it was the best decision I ever made.” “I feel like a new person. I want to show that I wasn’t the Sony we all knew last season, and this season I want to show that the Sony we all know is still there.”
The Spurs, who have been touring Asia during the preseason, have two more preseason games coming up against Shakhtar Donetsk and Barcelona. They will then host Brentford in the first round of the 2023-24 Premier League on March 13.
