Tim Sherwood believes Spurs will be Premier League title contenders next season.
Manchester City have of course run away with the championship this term however we have the chance to move up to third place when we take on Arsenal in the north London derby on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino has won a lot of praise for developing a bright, young team and for their dynamic attacking style, yet we are still yet to claim any silverware however Sherwood says this Spurs team has the ‘depth, strength and quality’ to challenge for major honours next term.
“This is the best squad I’ve ever seen at Tottenham,” the former Spurs player and coach told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT
“They look so good at the moment, I think they’ve got the depth, the strength and the quality to really push for the title next season.The club have given the manager the opportunity to build and he’s done it brilliantly.
He added: “It’s onwards and upwards for Spurs…but we always revert back to the same thing: they need to start picking up silverware.
“They’re obviously making progress and it’s fantastic, I’m really pleased for the club and it’s a brilliant period for them, it would be very nice if they could get their hands on something.”
Sherwood also believes the pressure will firmly be on the Gunners this time around with a Premier League top-four spot at stake.
He added: “If you give Tottenham space to play, like Man United did, I think they’ll just open you up. They can beat you all ends up, but if you press them, like Liverpool did, it causes them problems. It obviously takes a very fit team to do that over 90 minutes.
Sherwood went on to say: “Bringing in Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang and Ozil signing a new contract has lifted the spirits at Arsenal, but this is a game they can’t lose.I believe they have to win this game to have any chance of getting in the top four.”
