Ex-Tottenham Hotspur star Michael Dawson has backed his former side to finish above their London rivals Chelsea in this season’s Premier League table.

Tottenham started their official campaign with a resounding victory over Southampton with an impressive 4-1 scoreline despite going behind to an early James Ward-Prowse goal.

The Blues, on the other hand, struggled to get a 1-0 win against an uncertain Everton side in their opening fixture.

Spurs appear to have already completed the bulk of their transfer business for this summer, having signed the likes of Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie (Fabrizio Romano) to bolster their ranks considerably.

The West London outfit have also signed several new players such as Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Carney Chukwuemeka and Marc Cucurella so far this summer.

Dawson, who played as a centre-back for the North London club between 2005 and 2014 and is now a pundit for Sky Sports, believes Antonio Conte’s team will finish higher up in the league than Thomas Tuchel’s side this year, with Manchester City and Liverpool taking up the top two spots as usual.

Dawson told Sky Sports News (1:15 pm, August 6, 2022): “I think Spurs will finish above Chelsea this year. I do. The top two are on their own.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

Dawson’s claim can certainly be considered a valid take, looking at how the two London clubs have fared so far in pre-season and their opening league clashes. Not to mention, Fabio Paratici seems to have set up a solid squad for Conte, unlike Todd Boehly for Tuchel. Our bitter rivals have problems in central defence and centre-forward, while Spurs look pretty settled across the squad now.
