Phil Neville reckons Tottenham are likely to drop out of the top four next season in the Premier League.

The Lilywhites were one of the Premier League’s most consistent teams last term as they ended up being Chelsea’s closest challengers for the title.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men ended up falling short as they finished in second place in the table and had to settle for being runners-up in the title race.

Tottenham were also one of the Premier League’s top performing teams in the 2015-16 season as they also challenged for the top-flight title.

However, some are doubting Tottenham’s credentials ahead of next season as they prepare for a season of playing their home games at Wembley while the redevelopment of White Hart Lane continues.

And former Manchester United defender Neville believes that the Lilywhites are likely to drop out of the top four next season.

Neville is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “I think playing at Wembley will be a major challenge for Tottenham Hotspur.

“The big wide open pitch will be totally different to White Hart Lane.”

Tottenham kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to newly-promoted Newcastle on 13 August.

Spurs are also gearing up for a return to the Champions League group stage next season after their second-placed finish in the Premier League.
