Paul Merson: Tottenham Hotspur are playing the best football in their entire history

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur are currently in second place in the Premier League table.

Paul Merson has told Sky Sports that Tottenham Hotspur are currently playing the best football in their entire history.

Spurs have a proud history and they have enjoyed success in both domestic and European competition.

However, Merson feels that Tottenham have played better than ever before this season - as they have climbed into second place in the Premier League table.

“Tottenham couldn't play any better if they tried - it's the best they've played in 130 years of their history,” he said.

Tottenham have never before been so close to winning the Premier League title as they were this season.

Spurs kept pace with Leicester City for a sizeable chunk of the campaign, but they have just fallen short.

Tottenham have confirmed their place in the Champions League next season, but there are fears that they could slip out of second spot.

Spurs have failed to win any of their last three matches, giving Arsenal an opportunity to leapfrog them.

Tottenham need to avoid defeat on the final day of the campaign against Newcastle United to ensure that they finish above their North London rivals.
