Tottenham Hotspur fans slam Merson for criticising club’s away form

The Premier League clash between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur on Easter Sunday is arguably the most eye-catching contest of the weekend.

Both are fighting for a top-four place, but Spurs have an advantage as they are currently in the final Champions League spot with a five-point lead over the Blues.

Tottenham fans have been reliving the fiery encounter at Stamford Bridge from the 2015-16 campaign, which ended in a 2-2 draw and the Premier League title being handed to Leicester City.

The North London outfit have not won at Chelsea’s home since 1990, and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson does not think that the hoodoo will be broken this weekend.

A Spurs fan posted a quote on Reddit of the former Arsenal forward claiming that “Tottenham are not the greatest team away from home for where they are in the league”.

However, it seems in his Sky Sports predictions piece that line was removed, perhaps because Mauricio Pochettino’s side have the second best away form in the division, just below Manchester City.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted his initial claim, though, and Tottenham supporters have been ridiculing the pundit online.
