Forget the introduction this time, lets get right into it. Sevilla, Tottenham and Monaco are rising. They may not have the biggest club histories, but they are more challenging than you might think.
Currently place in 4th on the La Liga table, Sevilla have been extremely successful over the past few seasons. They have very skilled players such as Ben Yedder and Samir Nasri and bond well as a team. They aren’t one season wonders like Leicester City and I personally believe they will stay as one of the best in La Liga.
You have to think of Sevilla as the next Atletico Madrid, after all, Sevilla are just one point below them.
Tottenham have never been relegated during the Premier League era and over the past five or so years, they have proved that they are one of the best teams in England. Boasting skill in all areas and players like Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, Spurs are rapidly improving. Especially Alli, who has been nominated for PFA Young Player of the Year which he won last season. They are 2nd on the EPL table, and are in the FA Cup semi-finals. What they need to do now is win trophies and prove themselves in European competitions.
Consider them the new Liverpool or the new Chelsea. Speaking of which, Spurs and Chelsea are playing at Wembley next week in the FA Cup semis.
Saving the best to last, Monaco are rapidly improving and become one of the best teams in Europe. They have some of the best players in Europe, including Radamel Falcao and Kylian Mbappe. They have established themselves as one of the best in Europe and are currently very close to the Champions League semi finals after defeating Borussia Dortmund 3-2 away.
Monaco are becoming one of the best in Europe and people need to realise that they are actually top of the Ligue 1, ahead of PSG by three points.
Although the evidence and statistics are obvious, many people still choose to think of these teams as average, even though they are just like the old greats everybody knows about, only newer and stronger.
