Robbie Savage predicts where Spurs will finish, laughs off West Ham's chances

Robbie Savage

The pundit has been discussing Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham ahead of the new Premier League season.

Few things can divide opinion like a Robbie Savage Q + A on Twitter.

The Welshman has already thrown his most controversial opinions out there, tipping Newcastle United for another relegation battle and Manchester United for the Premier League title.

But Savage took to social media on Wednesday afternoon to clean up any teams he perhaps hadn't yet addressed. And one of those on his agenda were Tottenham, with a fan asking him where he sees them finishing in the top flight.

In response, Savage didn't make any controversial comments (wow) but simply offered up a number:

In itself, that isn't the most underwhelming prediction but the pundit is, in essence, saying Spurs will regress and finish a place lower this season, which perhaps has something to do with their lack of attacking signings this summer.

Savage was far less complimentary when it came to West Ham United, however, suggesting Slaven Bilic's new side will 'struggle' and projecting a 14th-place finish for the Hammers.

West Ham have heavily strengthened in the transfer window so far this summer but leaky defensive performances in Europe, combined with injury problems and, like Tottenham, the fact they are yet to bring in a new marquee striker, may have influenced Savage's pre-season thoughts.
