Tottenham Hotspur finished the 2013-14 season sixth in the league with 69 points, having won 21 matches, drawn six and lost 11. Their goal difference was plus four with a tally of 55 goals scored.

Excluding the youngsters who made just one or two appearances, a squad of 26 players featured. The following article ranks them, from those who made the least impact to the ones who made the most—acknowledging each did so in different individual circumstances.
