Collymore explains how Premier League trio are similar to 1994 Forest team

Stan Collymore says that Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Leicester City are similar to his former club Nottingham Forest.

Stan Collymore has explained on how Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Leicester City are similar to his Nottingham Forest team of 1994.

“In 1994, the Forest side I played for finished third in the league with mostly British based players, technically good, hard working and organised,” wrote the former England international striker.

“There was no secret, no magic system, no rash of panic signings from all over the world, no excess squad players moping around creating a flat atmosphere.

“Remind you of Liverpool and Spurs at the moment, and of course league leaders Leicester? Yup, reminds me of all 3!”

Tottenham, Liverpool and Leicester are all having a very good campaign so far, and there is a possibility that all of them could finish in the top four of the Premier League.

While Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester are at the top of the league table at the moment, Tottenham are just two points behind fourth-place Arsenal and Liverpool are six points off the Champions League places.

Tottenham have a very young side with a number of England internationals such as Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Ryan Mason.

Liverpool also have a group of young and hungry players, while England international striker Jamie Vardy has been creating the headlines for Leicester.

Meanwhile, Forest are languishing in the Championship at the moment and are in danger of getting relegated to League One at the end of the season.

The Reds are currently 18th in the league table with 17 points from as many matches, just two points above the relegation zone.
