“I think Tottenham will” – Jamie Carragher makes surprise prediction about Tottenham’s season

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are currently sitting 5th in the league table, just outside the top four.

They share the same points as their North London rivals, Arsenal, who are in 4th place, but they have played one game less.

Tottenham had a strong start to the season, going unbeaten in the first 10 games, winning 8 and drawing 2.

However, a series of injuries disrupted their momentum temporarily. Nevertheless, they have recently regained form, winning four of their last six games. Their only loss during this period was a 4-2 defeat against Brighton.

On the other hand, Arsenal, who were initially considered strong title contenders, have faced a decline in form. Mikel Arteta’s team has struggled recently, with three losses in their last five league games.

Despite Tottenham’s brilliant run and Arsenal’s contrasting performance, Former Liverpool man turned pundit, remains sceptical about Tottenham finishing above their London rivals.

Speaking on the Stick to Football podcast, Carragher expressed doubt about Spurs finishing above Liverpool or Arsenal.

Instead, Carragher sees Spurs competing more closely with Aston Villa for the fourth spot, assuming Liverpool, Manchester City, and Arsenal as the confirmed top three.

He stated:

“I don’t see Tottenham finishing above Liverpool or Arsenal. I don’t see that.

“I think Tottenham will be battling with Aston Villa for top four or five this season.”

TBH Says:

Jamie Carragher’s prediction comes surprising given how well Spurs have been playing. And despite their injury crisis, they prevailed, sitting on a touching distance from the top 4 and only 5 points behind league leaders Liverpool.

But Spurs fans will be more than happy with a top four finish in Ange’s debut season. They have made huge strides under the Australian, and he has only been with them for half a season.

The recent signings of Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin, along with the return of key players like Micky van de Ven and James Maddison, has further fueled the team’s ambition for a strong push in the crucial stretch of the season. The possibility of mounting a title challenge is not being ruled out.
