Tottenham Hotspur are seven points off the pace in the Premier League at the moment.

Former Chelsea and Celtic striker Chris Sutton said on The Monday Night Club show on BBC Radio 5live on Monday evening (broadcast from 7pm, November 28, 2016) that Tottenham Hotspur will improve.

Tottenham are fifth in the Premier League table at the moment with 24 points from 13 matches.

The North London outfit are seven points behind leaders Chelsea and four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.

Spurs were also knocked out of the Champions League last week, as their disappointing run of form continue.

Former Chelsea and Norwich City striker Sutton, though, believes that Mauricio Pochettino’s side will improve.

“I think Spurs will improve,” said Sutton on The Monday Night Club show on BBC Radio 5live on Monday evening (broadcast from 7pm, November 28, 2016). “They are still strong defensively, they need to do better in the final third.”

Tottenham were unbeaten in the Premier League this season until they went down 2-1 to Chelsea away from home at Stamford Bridge in the London derby at the weekend.

Spurs have had injury concerns this season, and results and performances have been disappointing.

Fans, though, should remain optimistic, as Tottenham do have some very good players, such as Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen.

The North London outfit will return to action this coming Saturday when they take on Swansea City at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.
