Football Manager 2021 Tottenham - Tactic | Team Guide | FM21

Tottenham tactic and team guide for Football Manager 2021. Club vision, tactic, key players, youth prospects and transfers in FM21.


Here is a brief analysis of the Spurs squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM manager can use.

About Tottenham


Spurs are a London club that have done consistently well since the inception of the English Premier League in 1992. Despite a shortage of trophies, Spurs are one of the more consistent sides in the Premier League who are in and around the European positions in the last decade. 

They are the finalists of the UEFA Champions league in the2018-2019 season and have also finished runner up in the English premier league the season before. They are known for building a strong squad with a minimal budget. They now have many superstars in their ranks. 

Board Requirements


Spurs are rebuilding and have qualified for the Europa League. Their board requirements are;

Board Requirements

    1. A top 4 league finish (automatic qualification to the champions league) 
    2. A QF finish in the UEFA Europa League. 
    3. At-least reach the semi-final of the FA cup.

Given their newfound consistency, the Spurs board will require the manager to play attacking entertaining football, sign English players especially younger players to develop for the future.

Spurs recently moved into a new stadium and have excellent training facilities available at their disposal. This should definitely help their young players in reaching their potential. They also have a decent youth set up with them producing the occasional star.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


The current Spurs squad has a variety of talent, especially in the attacking department. What is even more impressive is that their stars are relatively young in age, so should be able to hold on to them, you can easily build an empire around them.

There are quite a few tactical setups you could deploy with Spurs, however, the best-suited ones will be vertical Tiki Taka. This should provide the fast-paced attacking football that board demands and could make use of all the fine attacking talent at your disposal. However, against quality attacks or tough away games, one could go with a fluid counter attack formation or wing play.

A 4-2-3-1 is the most stable formation for Spurs. It will help you accommodate their stars in their preferred positions and also their attacking style of football. However, in tough away games, you can go with a 3 man defence, with a 352 or a 3-4-1-1.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-2-3-1 formation is as follows;

Football Manager 2021 Tottenham Tactic | Spurs FM21



Hugo Lloris as a sweeper keeper.

Matt Doherty and Sergio Reguilon as wing-backs, you can increase their crossing frequency if you wish to make use of the attackers’ aerial prowess.

Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier will make up the centre back pairing and both can be played as Ball playing defenders considering that they’re comfortable on the ball.

Pierre Emile Hojberg to be played as a Ball Winning Midfielder and Tanguy Ndombele to be played as a deep playmaker.

Dele Alli as an Attacking Midfielder, will pop up with some crucial goals in important matches

Son Heung-Min on the left-wing as a winger or as an Inside Forward and Gareth Bale on the right as an inverted winger.

Harry Kane as a deep-lying or a pressing forward.

Alternatively, when you change to a 3 at the back formation, you can make Davinson Sanchez as the 3rd centre back and play Dele Alli as an Attacking Midfielder behind Kane

Key Players 


    1. Harry Kane 


Football Manager 2021 Harry Kane

Harry Kane is arguably one of the best strikers in the world and is a natural finisher who is ever hungry for goals. Keep him fit and he will aid your cause with 20+ goals every season.

    2. Son Heung Min


FM21 Tottenham Team Guide  Son Heung Min-min

One of the most important players in the squad, Son has double-digit goals in each of his last 4 PL seasons. His contribution from the wings will be crucial to achieving favourable results.

    3. Gareth Bale

The talismanic Welsh winger is one of the best wingers on his day. He was already a Spurs superstar before making the switch to Madrid and helped them in securing several titles. Now that he is back with Spurs, big things are expected from the winger.

    4. Sergio Reguilon


FM21 Tottenham Team Guide Sergio Reguilon-min

New signing Reguilon is dynamite from the left full-back position. The highly-rated Spanish star had a wonderful 2019-2020 season with Sevilla and was named in the La Liga team of the season. He can be a world-class player for Spurs for several years.


1. The quality of centre backs is not up to the mark and the squad could definitely do with improvements in this area.

2. Growing discord about wages with some squad players wanting to leave the team.

3. The overall quality of the back-ups may not be up to the club’s standards.

Youth Prospects


There are a few exciting young prospects in the ranks who have the potential to be some of the best players in the league. A few examples are,

    1. Troy Parrott


Football Manager 2021 Troy Parrott

The young Irish striker is currently on loan at Milwall but can easily become one of the key players for Spurs in the next 2-3 years. He is also one of the best young strikers in the game and under the right manager, he could become as good as Harry Kane.

    2. Oliver Skipp


FM21 Tottenham Team Guide Oliver Skipp-min

The English defensive midfielder is one of the best young players in his position and can easily cement his place in the Spurs squad in future years. Currently, he is on loan at Norwich.

3. Gedson Fernandes


FM21 Tottenham Team Guide Gedson Fernandes-min

Currently, on loan at Spurs from Benfica, Spurs have the option to buy the youngster who was scouted by several clubs. Although his move to the PL has not been fruitful so far, under the right manager he could blossom to become one of the better midfielders in the game.
