Tottenham star Brennan Johnson could prove crucial additions

Brennan Johnson is among the goals for Tottenham

The record for goals in a single Premier League season was broken in midweek when Bruno Fernandes scored for Manchester United in their 4-2 win over Sheffield United

The Welshman has scored two goals and added four assists in his last seven league outings.
