Tottenham Hotspur certainly aren’t knocking on the door of the Champions League places so far this season in the Premier League.

In fact, Spurs are now closer to the relegation zone than they are to the top four and the likes of Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, and Leicester City.

Manchester City currently sit in fourth on 25 points, with Leicester and Chelsea on 26 points. Spurs are lagging well behind already on just 14.

Tottenham are in the bottom half of the table, despite reaching the Champions League Final just half a year ago. Pochettino’s side have won just three games from 12, drawing five and losing four.

However, Jermaine Jenas has implied that he still believes the Lilywhites can recover and make the top four this season.

The ex-Spurs man said his original prediction included Spurs and Arsenal, but he would now replace the Gunners with Chelsea due to their contrasting season starts.

Jenas said (Express): “Originally I was Spurs and Arsenal [along with Liverpool and Man City].

“But I think Arsenal’s season has been disastrous.

“Although they’re much higher in the table than Spurs, it’s just been more mayhem at that football club.

“And even the manager now seems to be under a lot of pressure, so I don’t think they’ll make it.

“I’ll replace them with Chelsea, because I think what Frank’s [Lampard] got going there is solid. The players are top drawer.”
