Tottenham Hotspur are about to enter a pivotal part of the season with Champions League glory and a place in the top four of the Premier League still up for grabs.

While Spurs still sit in third spot in the league table and look favourites to finish the campaign behind Manchester City and Liverpool they have certainly been more inconsistent with their form compared to recent seasons.

Former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson has insisted that Spurs’ lack of consistency is largely down to the injury issues that they have had to manage with Harry Kane and Dele Alli being two of the key players who have missed game time during important parts of the season.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, the 39-year-old discussed why injuries to key attacking players were the reason Spurs eventually fell off from the title race.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Injuries are hardly the only issue Mauricio Pochettino’s men have been up against with having to also play for a large portion of the season with uncertainty hanging over their heads of when they will be moving into their new stadium.

Additionally, the club has failed to sign a single player in the last two transfer windows.

It is an encouraging sign that despite these problems, Tottenham still look set to finish third and qualify for the Champions League for the fourth season running.
