Ian Wright makes claim about two things Tottenham could achieve this season

Ian Wright

Ian Wright believes Tottenham could not only qualify for the Champions League, but also win the FA Cup this season.

Pundit Ian Wright has told The Sun that he thinks Tottenham Hotspur could win The FA Cup as well as qualify for the Champions League this season.

Spurs rescued a 2-2 draw at home to Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday night, with Harry Kane's late penalty drawing them level.

Mauricio Pochettino then faced the Foxes yet again on Wednesday night, but this time lost 1-0 at White Hart Lane, with Robert Huth stealing all three points for Leicester, handing Spurs just their third league defeat of the season.

The result leaves Spurs seven points adrift of league leaders Arsenal, with some fans giving up hope of a title challenge, whilst West Ham are now just one point behind them in fifth place, with the Hammers closing the gap to the Champions League places.

Regardless, Spurs have been one of the most impressive teams in the top flight this season, with young players such as Eric Dier and Dele Alli thriving, alongside goal machine striker Harry Kane.

Pundit and former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has now told The Sun that he is frightened by Spurs' progress on and off the field, whilst making a bold claim about what Spurs could achieve this season.

Wright believes that, whilst Tottenham have to go to Leicester for their FA Cup replay, he thinks Spurs could qualify for the Champions League AND win the FA Cup this season, getting some silverware into the trophy cabinet at White Hart Lane.

"Tottenham can win the FA Cup this season, and finish in fourth," said Wright. "We are now looking at Spurs - frighteningly from an Arsenal perspective - who are looking like they are building some serious foundations to start challenging in the next few years," he added.

Do you think Tottenham can win the FA Cup and qualify for the Champions League?
