Pundit thinks Tottenham Hotspur will fail in title race

Tottenham Hotspur have become serious Premier League title contenders over the past few seasons.

In the 2015-16 campaign, the North London outfit were the only club left challenging shock title winners Leicester City, but they ended up finishing third.

Last season, Spurs came second to champions Chelsea, securing a place above arch rivals Arsenal for the first time in 22 years.

Naturally, the next progression would be to win the crown, but they have fierce competition, in particular Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s men remain unbeaten after 10 top-flight matches, which has given the club a five-point cushion in the race for the title.

As it stands, Spurs are eight points adrift of top spot, with Manchester United just above them in second place.

Tottenham have convincingly beaten the likes of Liverpool, as well as Real Madrid in the Champions League, but Sky Sports pundit Matt Le Tissier thinks that Mauricio Pochettino’s team will fall short again in the league.

The former Southampton star toldĀ Sky Sports:

“I think they’ve got enough quality to say they aren’t reliant on one player. The two defeats they’ve had have been to Chelsea and Manchester United so only the draws with Swansea and Burnley are what would be concerning.

“Mauricio Pochettino’s reputation continues to grow with their European performances, where they’ve made huge progress from last season.

“I think the results against Liverpool and Dortmund have put to bed the Wembley hoodoo, but I would say they are in contention for second place rather than the title, given Manchester City’s start.”
