Robbie Savage thinks he knows how Tottenham’s season will pan out

Robbie Savage

Robbie Savage rules out Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

Former Derby County midfielder Robbie Savage has predicted on Breathesport.com that Tottenham Hotspur will have a disappointing 2015-16 season.

Savage believes that the League Cup represents the only chance for Spurs to win a trophy this season and does not fancy their chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League.

“I can only imagine Spurs will put out a full-strength team tonight as the Capital One Cup is their only realistic chance of winning a trophy this season,” Savage wrote on Breathesport.com ahead of tonight’s clash against Arsenal at White Hart Lane. “I don't think they'll win the FA Cup, Europa or finish in the top 4.”

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has made a few changes for the League Cup third-round tie against Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen and Son Heung-min are all on the substitutes’ bench, although striker Harry Kane and attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen are both going to start.

Perhaps Pochettino is not taking the League Cup seriously, but Savage’s prediction about how Spurs’ season will pan out is not necessarily going to come true.

Although over the past few years, Tottenham have failed to finish in the top four of the Premier League, perhaps this time things could be different.

One cannot say for sure that the North London outfit will not win the FA Cup or the Europa League.

True, winning in Europe is not going to be easy, but there is a chance that Tottenham could go all the way in the FA Cup.

Never say never...
