Kyle Walker responds when asked if Tottenham can finish in the top four this season

Tottenham are hoping to break back into the top four this season.

Spurs are looking to break into the Premier League top four this season and once again qualify for the Champions League, and Kyle Walker has discussed their chances when speaking to talkSPORT.

When asked if this is the year Spurs can finish in the top four, Walker said: “It’s difficult. It’s not like the Championship, but it’s not far off now because a lot of teams are beating a lot of teams. We just have to do the basics well, do what we’re doing in training and we’ll see where we are at the end of the season.”

Spurs currently sit seventh in the Premier League table, and along with Leicester, they remain the only team to have lost just one game this term. They are only seven points off the top of the table, and only three off fourth placed West Ham.

The Premier League has been extremely competitive this season, with so-called smaller teams beating their bigger opponents with apparent ease, and it has opened up the top four for a number of sides.

The likes of West Ham and Leicester will be dreaming of the Champions League if they can keep up their great form, whilst Spurs and Liverpool will have ambitions of going one step better than usual and pushing from Europa League to the premier competition in Europe.

Walker has admitted that it will be hard season for Spurs, as although bigger teams are out of form, they do possess players of real quality, and he has urged Spurs to just continue doing the basics well if they are to have any chance of ending the campaign in the top four.
