Former Chelsea and Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on Friday morning (November 13) that Tottenham Hotspur have a great chance of finishing in the top four of the Premier League this season.
“They do have a fantastic opportunity this year, pure and simply (because) the others around them aren’t really performing,” said Wilkins.
Tottenham are fifth in the Premier League table at the moment with 21 points from 12 matches.
The North London outfit are currently just three points behind Manchester United, who are fourth in the standings.
A top-four finish is very much realistic for Spurs, who have been truly superb so far this season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have found consistency in their game, and this could prove to be very crucial for them as the season progresses.
Chelsea and Liverpool are Tottenham’s two main challengers for the prized fourth spot, and perhaps even West Ham United, Southampton and Everton will fancy their chances this campaign.
Tottenham will return to Premier League action next weekend when take on West Ham at White Hart Lane.
