Paul Scholes predicts where Tottenham will finish this season
Paul Scholes reckons Tottenham are likely to drop out of the top four in the Premier League this season
Paul Scholes is tipping Tottenham to finish outside the top four in the Premier League this season.
It has been a disappointing week for the Lilywhites, after their 2-0 loss at the hands of Liverpool in the Premier League was compounded by their 1-0 defeat by Gent in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Tottenham are aiming to build on their third-placed finish in the Premier League last season, with Spurs currently in the same position in the top-flight table this term.
However, former Manchester United midfielder Scholes is expecting to see Mauricio Pochettino’s men drop out of the top four in the coming weeks.
Asked who he thinks will not finish in the top four this season, Scholes told the Rebublik of Mancunia: “Who will fall out of it? I think Tottenham will fall out of it.
“Even though they’re in a good position, you saw last year, when it got to March, April, they couldn’t really take it.”
Manchester United are currently gearing up for their FA Cup fifth-round clash against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon, while Tottenham take on London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage.
