Former Liverpool and Newcastle United star John Barnes has told HITC Sport that Tottenham Hotspur will not win the Premier League title this season.
Tottenham finished second in the Premier League last season and third during the 2015-16 campaign.
The North London outfit are ninth in the league table at the moment with four points from three matches.
Barnes does not expect Tottenham to win the Premier League title during the 2017-18 campaign.
The former England international has said that Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are the favourites for the league title.
In an exclusive interview with HITC Sport, former Liverpool star Barnes, speaking on behalf of Bonus Code Bets, said when asked about Tottenham’s title chances: “They did very well last year, I didn’t think they would improve.
“There is no question of them winning the title because once again playing at Wembley is going to be detrimental for them in terms of winning all of their home games as we have seen already.
“I don’t think they will win the title, but I think they have got good players. I don’t think they necessarily needed to sign.
“They have got a good squad, they have got a strong squad, but once again for me, Manchester City and Manchester United are the favourites alongside probably Chelsea, although Tottenham will once again fight for a top-four spot, but I don’t think they will win the title.”
Tottenham signed as many as five players in the summer transfer window, including two on deadline day.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side recruited defender defender Davinson Sanchez, goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, defender Juan Foyth, defender Serge Aurier and striker Fernando Llorente from Ajax, Southampton, Estudiantes, Paris Saint-Germain and Swansea City respectively.
Spurs will return to action next weekend when they take on Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the Premier League.
