Premier League 2018/19: What should be considered a successful season for the traditional top six
#3 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR F.C
Many predicted that the North London outfit will struggle this season as a result of their lack of transfer activity in the summer. They may not have played vintage football but they have kept getting the wins under their belts.
They have also produced two world class performances in the premier league to down Chelsea and Manchester United. The next step for Spurs must be to win a trophy and validate the team building effort of the last couple of years.
Success for Spurs this season must involve a cup triumph, quarter final champions league appearance and a place in the top four.
#4 CHELSEA F.C
Maurizio Sarri's men started the season in such bright fashion that many considered them title challengers. They have faltered somewhat with two losses and a draw in their last five matches.
However, patience is key as Sarri's revolution will take time to sink deep into the fabric of the club. The transfer window will also be key to Sarri remodelling the side to his liking.
With this in view, a top four finish, a cup run and semifinal place in the UEFA Europa league should be the minimum requirement for their season to be considered successful.
