Alan Brazil responds when asked whether Tottenham Hotspur have blown their chance to win the Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur look destined to finish in second place in the Premier League table this season.

Alan Brazil has told TalkSPORT’s Sports Breakfast programme, which was broadcast on 5th May, that Tottenham Hotspur definitely have not blown their best chance of winning the Premier League title.

Brazil, who used to represent Spurs in his playing days, has been highly critical of Arsenal for failing to seize their opportunity, with Leicester City ended up finishing at the top of England’s top flight.

However, Brazil defended his former side - suggesting that Spurs will only get better as the season progresses.

“No, I think this a young Spurs who will get better,” he said, when asked whether Spurs had blown their chance this season. “Arsenal have top players from Europe, and it was open this year.

“Tottenham will feel next year that they can win it. No [they didn’t blow it this season].”

Tottenham have pushed Leicester City hard in the race for the title, but their dreams of finishing on top of the pile were ended on Monday evening.

Spurs could only manage a 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, which has left them seven points behind the Foxes with two games to play.

Despite Spurs’ failure to catch Leicester this season, there is still a great amount of optimism for the coming years at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham still have the youngest squad of any side in the Premier League, and with current manager Mauricio Pochettino verbally agreeing to extend his contract, it seems the future is very bright for the Lilywhites.
