Joey Barton has predicted that Tottenham will finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.
The North London club played out to a frustrating 1-1 draw with Southampton this weekend and are currently in fifth position on the Premier League standings with 45 points from 24 games, trailing fourth placed Liverpool by two points.
Former Newcastle and Rangers midfielder Barton believes that Spurs will qualify for the Champions League as long as Dele Alli and Harry Kane remain fit.
Unlike the two previous seasons, Spurs are not in contention to win the title this season but fans of the club can certainly feel positive about things based off Barton’s comments.
“I think all being well, barring any injuries to Alli and Kane, I think Spurs will sneak into fourth spot,” said Barton on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (8:12am, January 22, 2018).
