Paul Scholes delivers blunt verdict on Tottenham’s title hopes this season

Paul Scholes says Tottenham will not win the Premier League title this season...

Paul Scholes does not believe that Tottenham have what it takes to win the Premier League this season, despite their recent impressive form.

The Lilywhites have earned plenty of praise for their performances this term and were 4-0 winners over West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane on Saturday lunchtime.

That win followed their impressive 2-0 victory over Chelsea earlier this month as Mauricio Pochettino’s men became the first side to beat the Blues in 13 Premier League games.

However, despite Tottenham’s impressive form and their Premier League title push last season, Scholes is not expecting to see Spurs win the title.

Speaking on BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show, Scholes said: “I don’t see them seeing it out and going on to win the league, especially with the teams that are around them.”

Tottenham ended up third in the table last season despite being Leicester City’s closest challengers for the title for most of the campaign.

Arsenal pipped them to second place on the final day of the season but both north London clubs ended the campaign without trophies.
