If you fancy taking charge of the North London side in FIFA 21, here is everything you need to know,


Tottenham made some big changes to their squad in the summer, as they hunt for a place back in the top four.

Starting XI

Jose Mourinho has been known for utilising a variety of formations throughout his managerial career, most recently opting for the 4-2-3-1.

The 4-3-3 and the 4-4-1-1 have also deployed frequently by Mourinho's previous sides, but it's the 4-3-2-1 that we would run with Spurs in Career Mode on FIFA 21.

The narrow attack suits Spurs front three perfectly, with both Heung Min Son and Gareth Bale lethal in front of goal but good enough technically to take on a defender rather than getting in behind.

The three man midfield of Lo Celso, Ndombele and Hojbjerg isn't the strongest on paper, but if Nbdombele is anything like he was on FIFA 20, we wouldn't worry too much.

On the Bench

They may have lost Jan Vertonghen in the summer, so it's up to Eric Dier (OVR 78) to bridge the gap in the back four. Serge Aurier (OVR 80) and Ben Davies (OVR 80) offer full back cover.

Harry Winks (OVR 80) and Eric Lamela (OVR 80) will be reasonable options to come on in the latter stages.

Spurs have an array of attacking talent on the bench, none more so than Steven Bergwijn (OVR 83) and Lucas Moura (OVR 83)


Their strength in depth isn't a particular strong point, but they do have some exciting youngsters coming through the ranks.

Malachi Faggan-Walcott(OVR 60 - POT 83) has the skills to potentially void that gap at centre back, whilst Dennis Kirkin (OVR 61 - POT 83) is another talented defender worth looking at.


Mourinho has been known for parking the bus in the past, but this Spurs side is far from that.

Look to have Harry Kane drop deep from that striker role and look for the support of Gareth Bale and Heung Min Son, both of whom certainly know where the back of the net is.

Tanguay N'Dombele is going to be the man to run the midfield due to his impressive off ball ratings, but he's one that will tire quickly should you play him centrally, so keep an eye on that and get Harry Winks involved where you can.

The bench is going to be key in this side, and should you opt to bring either Steven Bergwijn or Lucas Moura on later in the game, then changing to a more traditional 4-3-3 will suit their games better.


There are a number of Spurs players with disappointingly low ratings on FIFA 21 - none more so than the 83-rated Gareth Bale - but the new training system can soon put that right.

The new Growth System will help you to improve players as well as giving them the ability to learn new positions. Did someone say Bale as a CF?
