Gary Neville makes bold Tottenham prediction after Manchester United draw

Tottenham equalised once each on either side of the halfway mark as Ange Postecoglou’s side drew 2-2 with Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United. The visitors, even with their injury issues, put up a very good game.

After Rasmus Hojlund opened the scoring pretty much immediately after kick-off, Richarlison headed home the first equaliser from a Pedro Porro corner in the 19th minute. After Richy scored, the Lilywhites upped the tempo and controlled most parts of the game, albeit without any output.

Against the run of play though, Manchester United scored another goal as Hojlund passed it through for Marcus Rashford who made no mistake and finessed it into the bottom corner. Spurs hit back immediately as the game restarted. Timo Werner passed it through for Rodrigo Bentancur who put it low to the left past Andre Onana.

The Lilwhites dominated possession for most parts of the game after that and had a few decent opportunities to score, but could not score. Man United came close to securing three points at the end of the game but Scott McTominay missed a header from close. It ended 2-2, and former United skipper Gary Neville said Spurs could put up a fight for second or third if they can get through the coming few weeks (h/t Sky Sports).

It’s a take so spicy that it could put a jalapeno to shame. This is the Premier League, after all, where chaos is the norm.

What have the coming weeks got for us?

After our top-class start to the season, we would have likely been in this situation. However, off-track we went, and now top-four would be great. Top two though, not so sure.

So, let’s dissect this audacious forecast. Neville, with the confidence of a seer, suggests that if Tottenham can dance their way through the minefield of fixtures, juggling injuries and tactical challenges like seasoned circus performers, they might just pull off the heist of the season.

Moreover, his prediction underscores the potential he sees in Tottenham’s current form and performance, especially considering the injury hurdles the team has faced.
