Rio Ferdinand believes Tottenham can still make PL top four
According to the Daily Mail, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur can still finish in the Premier League top four this season.
Having been at the top of the table in December last year, Tottenham endured a massive slip, dropping to the ninth spot in the league table over the past couple of months. This had led to questions over whether Jose Mourinho & co. will be able to qualify for Europe next season.
However, back-to-back wins against Burnley and Fulham has seemingly put Tottenham back into the mix for a top-four finish. Indeed, following Thursday’s narrow 1-0 victory has now seen Tottenham move to eighth place, and just five points below Chelsea in fourth, that too with a game in hand.
And Ferdinand has now claimed that Tottenham still can finish the season inside the top four.
“It’s not about performances. It’s about getting points on the board. They now have an achievable target of getting in the Champions League. If they can get some consistency, three points, three points, they’re gonna be running people close. When you’ve got the front four with that talent, Spurs are gonna be a threat against anybody.”
Ferdinand then went on to add that even though Tottenham have been at the receiving end of criticism from pundits, they seem to have momentum with them now.
“They’re a team that have been kicked by pundits and the media because of inconsistency. Now they seem a team who’ve got momentum, looking above them saying ‘that’s not out of reach.’ Imagine if they win the League Cup final as well.”
