With Tottenham Hotspur having now suffered four successive defeats in all competitions, their season looks to be in danger of petering out.
While Spurs still find themselves in the Champions League, their chances of finishing in the top four suffered a major blow with defeat to Wolves last Sunday.
The 3-2 loss left the Lilywhites five points off the Blues who currently sit in fourth spot and two points below both Wolves and Manchester United.
talkSPORT’s supercomputer has now crunched the numbers and predicted how the table will look at the end of the season, and it is not good news for Spurs fans.
While the supercomputer projects Jose Mourinho’s men to finish above both Wolves and the United, it predicts that the Lilywhites will miss out on the top four.
So if the prediction does come to fruition, it will mean that Tottenham will not take part in the Champions League next season for the first time in five seasons.
Instead, it has tipped Tottenham to finish in seventh position which would see the club qualify for the Europa League.
A fifth-place finish in the Premier League could still be enough to see Spurs qualify for Europe’s premier club competition if Manchester City’s two-year ban is upheld by The Court of Arbitration for Sport (the Guardian).
Defeat in the FA Cup to Norwich City last night meant that Tottenham’s chances of ending their twelve-year wait for silverware look set to go on for another season.
Spurs Web Opinion
With Kane and Son not expected to return until the final five games or so, I just don’t see us scoring enough goals to finish in the top four. If we were to miss out on Champions League qualification, I would prefer us to finish 7th or 8th rather than having to contend with Thursday night football next season.
