Graeme Souness has embarassing change of thought on Spurs’ title hopes

Tottenham Hotspur have thrown their name in the mix for the Premier League title so far this season, as the club currently sit third, behind only Man City and Liverpool.

With City beating the Merseyside team last week, Spurs were able to close the gap between themselves and the leaders back to just the six points.

This could have been down to just three if Spurs had avoided their shock defeat to Wolves two game weeks ago.

Tottenham had led the game 1-0 going into half time, but conceded three goals in 15 second half minutes to see all three points vanish.

Before Spurs’ last match against Cardiff, SkySports pundit Graeme Souness claimed that people were wrongly putting a line through Tottenham’s name just because of one defeat.

However, after beating Cardiff 3-0, Souness has now strangely put a line through the club’s name himself, stating they will not win the title.

Strange from Graeme.

He said this last week (SkySports): “When we saw them play against Everton, eight, nine days ago, they weren’t good, they weren’t very good, they were absolutely brilliant, in all aspects of their game and if they come anywhere near that today, and between now and the end of the season they’ll be back challenging again. One bad result and people are putting a line through their name.”

He then changes his mind and said this after the Cardiff game (Reported by HITC): “If you are deducing that I have just reduced this Premier League to a two-horse race then you are absolutely right. Tottenham are a fine team and certainly close enough to be considered as contenders but I can’t see them winning the title.

“Imagine if Harry Kane were to pick up an injury while Son is away — to whom would Tottenham turn for goals?”
