It's fair to say that Paul Merson's predictions about Tottenham Hotspur this season have not been the most accurate.
Although it would be impossible to expect Merson to get every result correct, his predictions compared with Tottenham's actual record show an alarming disparity, as shown below:
Merson's Spurs predictions:
DWDWWLLLWLWLLLWLWDDLD - 26 points
Actual Spurs results:
WWLDLDWLLWLWWLDWWWDWL - 34 points
Merson's predictions would leave Spurs sitting in 11th position in the Premier League table and, even if they haven't been particularly awe-inspiring this season, that seems a harsh reflection on the ability of their squad.
As it stands, Tottenham are sitting in sixth place, just three points off the top-four and looking as if they can mount a sustained challenge for the Champions League spots, giving them a chance to prove Merson very wrong.
