Arsenal legend: Why Tottenham will finish in the top four

Thierry Henry is backingTottenham to finish in the top four this season

Thierry Henry believes that Tottenham showed that they have what it takes to finish in the top four this season during their 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Sunday.

The Lilywhites were in impressive form at Emirates Stadium and dominated the game for large spells as Arsene Wenger’s men looked sluggish and struggled to gain a foothold in the game.

Harry Kane gave Spurs the lead in the 32nd minute with a calm finish, before Kieran Gibbs came off the bench to bundle home Mesut Ozil’s cross and rescue a point for the Gunners.

The result left Tottenham fifth in the Premier League table and just three points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.

And Arsenal legend Henry is convinced that Spurs have what it takes to break back into the Champions League spots this season.

Henry said on Sky Sports after Sunday’s game: “If they play like they played tonight, and do it week in, week out, I think they [Spurs] can do it [finish in the top four].”

Fellow pundit Graeme Souness added: “I think Spurs have a realistic chance of getting top four. They are a young group, and generally you get ups and downs with young players.

“They have genuine quality, a fabulous goalkeeper, and Harry Kane is a handful. He’s the best British one around of his type of forward. The top four is very much on.

“Tottenham were fabulous for the largest part of that game, they bossed the midfield and I think the turning point for Arsenal was bringing Mathieu Flamini on.

“All of a sudden, he started to put a few challenges in. Before that, Tottenham’s midfield players had just bossed the Arsenal midfield.”

Tottenham’s next game is a home clash against West Ham United on Sunday 22 November.
