Phil Neville has told BBC Match of the Day that Tottenham Hotspur need to win all of their remaining Premier League games in order to finish in the top four this season.
The former Manchester United and Everton star made the comments during Spurs’ match against Queens Park Rangers away from home on Saturday.
"If Tottenham are to qualify for the Champions League, then they are going to have to win all their remaining games,” Neville told BBC Match of the Day.
Tottenham won the clash against QPR 2-1 at Loftus Road, thanks to two goals from Harry Kane, and are now sixth in the Premier League table with 50 points from 28 matches.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently just three points behind fourth-placed Manchester United and only one behind Liverpool, who are fifth.
While winning all of their final 10 Premier League games will virtually guarantee a top-four finish, one suspects that they will probably not be able to do that.
The North London outfit will take on United at Old Trafford next week, and will have to face Newcastle United and Southampton both away from home next month.
Defending English champions Manchester City will visit White Hart Lane at the start of May, while defeating Everton at Goodison Park on the final day of the season will not prove to be easy despite the Toffees’ struggles this campaign.
Despite the truly brilliant form of Liverpool and Arsenal, they are not going to win all of their final 10 matches.
One suspects that Tottenham do not ‘have’ to win all of their 10 remaining matches, but doing so will certainly make them one of the top favourites to finish in the top four.
