Sky Sports football pundit Paul Merson has already ruled Tottenham Hotspur out of winning the Premier League title this season.
Tottenham already find themselves seven points behind leaders Liverpool after just four matches this season.
The former Arsenal midfielder believes that Spurs have a strong side and are instead looking at a top four finish rather than a first league title since 1961.
Merson has claimed that Spurs instead need to win a cup this season now that the league is in his opinion out of their reach despite the fact that we have only just entered September.

While the defeat to Newcastle was inexcusable, Spurs have picked up points away at Arsenal and Manchester City; which we failed to manage last season.
It seems that some in the media are being overly critical of Tottenham who are forgetting that we have already played two of last season’s top five sides.
