Alan Shearer has already shared his predictions for Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur team’s league finish after yesterday’s draw.
Although Spurs heroically rallied twice against Manchester United yesterday, they may be frustrated not to win three points.
The bold and dynamic side of Ange displayed every quality that has made Tottenham supporters fall in love with the team all over again this season.
Particularly Rodrigo Bentancur gave a fantastic performance, which Jamie Redknapp praised following the match.
And given these impressive outings, which frequently result in three points for Spurs, it’s intriguing to speculate about the team’s league finish.
Tottenham’s eighth-place result from the previous season was insufficient; the team belongs in the European football league.
And Alan Shearer has now shared his predictions for Postecoglou’s Tottenham team’s finish in this campaign after yesterday’s game.
Shearer did forecast a comeback to European football in an interview with the podcast “The Rest Is Football.”
Some Spurs supporters, meanwhile, might believe he is perhaps undervaluing their potential.
Alan Shearer thinks Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham side are still in a race for fourth place
“I have been impressed with them and I think they will be there or thereabouts to get into fourth or fifth,” Shearer stated in a podcast interview.
Spurs and Arsenal are currently tied for fifth place in terms of points despite having played one extra game.
With a draw on their travels yesterday, both teams’ deficit to Aston Villa is now three points.
Shearer says it will be a close decision, but Postecoglou will undoubtedly be hoping that his young Tottenham team will be a lock for a top four place.
The Spurs boss will undoubtedly be eyeing both Villa and Arsenal in the months to come, given Manchester City and Liverpool appear like they’ll be participating in a title competition once again.
Luckily for the top five, West Ham United, who are six points behind Spurs in sixth place, has a bit of a lead.
This season, Postecoglou has laid some extremely solid foundations, and it appears like everyone in the team is following his lead.
Spurs will now take a vacation until their FA Cup match against Man City on January 26.
It will be intriguing to observe whether they manage to bring in a gifted young midfield player during that time.
