Paul Robinson has insisted that Tottenham have a ‘real opportunity’ to leapfrog Chelsea into a top-four spot when football returns this month, in an interview with Football Insider.

The former Spurs goalkeeper believes that returning to football without the home crowd advantage will cause some strange results which could shake the league table up.

The Bundesliga returned to action last month and it is clear that there has been no home advantage with only 21% of home teams winning their games so far. (DW)

The former England number-one expects Spurs to get their chance to make up for a poor season.

“They are relying on other teams dropping points but we are in unprecedented times where the home advantage has disappeared,” Robinson said.

“I think we will see some strange results and some results that we were not expecting.”

Harry Kane is now fully fit and available for selection, with the Spurs striker telling the club’s website that they will likely need to win eight out of their nine games to climb into the top-four (Spurs).

The Lilywhites are currently sat in eighth place, seven points off Chelsea in fourth with only nine games to go (Premier League).

Robinson added: “I am very glad that the league will be played out but I am glad I am not a gambler between now and the end of the season because results will be very hard to predict!

“Tottenham are seven points off Chelsea but there is a real opportunity to close that gap.”
