Arsenal legend Paul Merson backs Tottenham Hotspur to finish in the top four

Writing in his Sportskeeda column as quoted by Football. London, Arsenal legend Paul Merson claimed that Tottenham Hotspur will be one of the teams that finish in the top four in the Premier League this season.

Merson claims that along with the Lilywhites, he expects Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool to be the other three teams to finish in the coveted Champions League spots but stopped short of naming the order in which they would finish.

Before the beginning of the season, Merson felt that Chelsea would be in the top four and that only one of Tottenham or Arsenal would make it but six games into the season and the pundit already seems to have changed his mind.

Tottenham, along with Manchester City are the only two teams that are still unbeaten in the Premier League this campaign, finding themselves third in the table with 14 points and level with Pep Guardiola’s team.

Arsenal on the other hand, after five straight wins, to start off the season ended up losing 3-1 to Manchester United but still managed to retain the top spot in the Premier League, having one point more than Spurs and City.

A lot of people are backing Tottenham to come good season after the kind of transfer window that they had, signing as many as seven players including the likes of Fraser Forster, Clement Lenglet, Ivan Persic, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie, although the last one is back on loan at Udinese.

Merson feels that considering the starts they have had to the season, both Arsenal and Tottenham will sneak into the top 4 but Chelsea would be pushing under Graham Potter.

“It’s still early doors, but I think the Premier League top-four this season will be Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in whatever order”

“Chelsea will obviously have a thing or two to say, but we’ll have to wait and see how [Graham] Potter performs at Stamford Bridge.”

Considering the kind of transfer window that they have had, anything other than a top-four finish will surely be a huge disappointment for the Lilywhites. However, just reaching one of the four spots cannot be our aim.

Spurs have the squad to compete and win the Premier League and under a serial winner like Antonio Conte, we must aim for the very best and just not be content with getting Champions League football next season. It’s high time we get some silverware and this season could finally be the time we do just that.
