Thierry Henry comments on Tottenham Hotspur’s top four chances

White Hart Lane 5

Tottenham Hotspur currently boast the longest unbeaten run in the Premier League.

Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry believes Tottenham Hotspur have so far failed to take advantage of Chelsea’s terrible start and adds that they will fall short of making the top four, The Sun report.

The Blues’ latest defeat to West Ham United leave Jose Mourinho’s men languishing in the lower reaches of the Premier League table, picking up just 11 points from their opening ten games.

Chelsea’s poor start has given hope to a number of clubs looking to break into the top four, including the likes of West Ham, Liverpool and, of course Tottenham.

Spurs, despite losing their opening game at Manchester United, are currently on an impressive eight-game unbeaten run. But, with five draws on the board, there have been plenty of 'what ifs.'

Writing in his column for The Sun, Henry feels Mauricio Pochettino’s men haven’t cashed in on their London rivals’ poor start and says it’s only a matter of time before Chelsea catch them up.

"With Chelsea getting off to such a terrible start, the door has been open for Spurs to make a really strong push to finish in the top four," the former Arsenal striker said.

"But they haven’t taken advantage of Chelsea’s problems, just as they were unable to capitalise when Manchester United slipped up two years ago.”

"Sooner or later, Chelsea will put a good run together and I still believe we will end up with the same top four as last season."

Missed opportunities:

While Tottenham can proudly acknowledge their superb unbeaten run, there have also been plenty of missed opportunities with draws to Stoke City, Leicester City and Everton being real standouts.

Pochettino’s men have been creating chances but a lack of prolificacy in front of goal has been their downfall as well as a proper alternative to Harry Kane.

The England international has just one league goal to his name so far this season. If he isn’t scoring, which others forwards at White Hart Lane are capable of sharing the burden?
