Ex-Liverpool player implies that Spurs are merely a ‘bang-average’ team

Heading into game week 20, Liverpool have an impressively commanding lead over the rest of the competition in the Premier League, having not yet lost a single match.

In fact, the Reds have only dropped two points all season, and find themselves 13 above their nearest rivals Leicester City after 19 matches played.

Leicester may have been battered 4-0 by Liverpool this week, but Brendan Rodgers’ side have been the surprise package in the top four this season.

Manchester City, the current reigning champions, should also never be ruled out, as they sit just one point below Leicester in third.

However, the chasing pack competing for the final top-four spot at the moment are leaving a lot to be desired.

Chelsea are in fourth with 32 points, but have lost five of their last seven Premier League matches. Tottenham are in sixth with 29 points, Man United in eighth with 28 points, and Arsenal in eleventh with 24.

Ex-Liverpool man, Mark Lawrenson, implied that the big sides below the top three are ‘bang-average’.

He said (BBC): “Take away Liverpool, Leicester and Manchester City, and there are a lot of bang-average sides in the Premier League this season,

“People talk about how good Chelsea are ‘on their day’, and say the same about Tottenham or Arsenal too – but they are not having many days.

“All of these sides are being beaten by teams you would not expect to, and sometimes pretty easily.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I totally agree with Mark Lawrenson, there is far too much hype around our spurs players some are better than average and 1 or two could play in a top team and maintain form the rest of them would be expose. Spurs needs to rebuild the team and the only Players I would keep would be Heung-Min Son, Davinson Sanchez, Ryan Sessegnon, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, Tanguy Ndombele, and Juan Foyth the rest I believe are not able to go to the next level where Spurs needs to be.
