Tottenham Hotspur have climbed up the Premier League ranks over the past decade and are now considered a legitimate contender each season. Established in 1882, Tottenham — or Spurs — captured two Division One championships, but the club has yet to hoist the Premier League trophy. Spurs’ last league title was won during the 1960-61 season. On top of their league success, Tottenham has won two Second Division titles and are eight-time FA Cup champions.
On the European stage, Tottenham has won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup once and captured the EUFA Cup on twice. In 2008, Spurs won another League Cup, which meant the club had captured a major trophy in each of the last six decades — a feat only accomplished by Manchester United. Tottenham’s largest margin of victory came during the 2009-10 season when Spurs crushed Wigan Athletic 9-1, propelled by a five-goal performance from forward Jermain Defoe.
Former striker Jimmy Greaves remains the franchise’s all-time scoring leader with 266 goals. Steve Perryman — a former defender/midfielder who played 17 seasons with Spurs — is the franchise’s all-time leader in appearances with 854.

How To Win At Tottenham Betting
Tottenham Hotspur are knocking on the door to win its first title in the Premier League. Under manager Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham finished third in the Premier League standings in 2015-16 -- just nine points behind eventual champions Leicester City -- and second in 2016-17, seven points adrift of Chelsea.
The biggest challenge Spurs face is keeping their young, star-studded team intact. Spurs, on average, are the youngest team in the Premier League and have some commodities other teams will try to poach. Harry Kane - who has scored at least 20 goals in three straight seasons - Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen are all sought-after assets.
Daniel Levy, Spurs owner, runs a tight financial ship and rarely pays players as much as other top Premier League teams. If Tottenham can keep their team intact, they should win the title in coming seasons.
The other immediate problem facing Tottenham is the fact that they have to play their 2017-18 home games at Wembley. White Hart Lane is being renovated so Spurs are forced to play their home games at the national stadium, where they've struggled of late.
Tottenham enjoyed a remarkable last season at White Hart Lane, where they went undefeated in 19 home games, claiming the best home record in the league. Spurs took 53 from a possible 57 home points. That almost flawless home record included 47 goals for, compared to a paltry nine against.
Spurs away record cost them a chance to win their first Premier League crown. They lost four games on the road, which was good for the league's fifth best away record.
The 2017-18 season is the best chance for Spurs to win the title. If they don't, Spurs are susceptible to being dismantled by big-money transfers. Back Tottenham to win the FA Cup and Premier League, but avoid them in the Champions League.
