Last September, we looked at the most important players at Tottenham Hotspur. With the new season underway, who are the risers and fallers?

This list is not extensive and has been ranked according to varying factors. Some players still with a part to play have been omitted.

Mauricio Pochettino says if Tottenham are to win trophies, they need players focused on the team's goals and not individual targets.

First-half goals from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli were enough to give Spurs all three points. Tottenham started brightly and took the lead when goal-line technology ruled that Vertonghen's header had just crossed the line, only for Newcastle to draw level almost immediately. The visitors regained the lead but were unable to find the third goal that would have given breathing space as they tired.

Five of those players...
