Paul Merson: I’m still not convinced by Tottenham

Paul Merson Tottenham

Former Arsenal player Paul Merson revealed that he is not convinced by Tottenham and believes that the North London outfit has the ability to implode before the end of the season. Tottenham has put together a superb run of results recently including beating defending champions Manchester City. Arsenal on the other hand has had consecutive defeats against Crystal Palace and Brighton.

“I still feel Arsenal has got a chance. Arsenal has got to go to Chelsea and Tottenham has still got to face Liverpool, which will be a different game. With Chelsea beating Southampton last weekend, that’s sort of cemented their top-four place,” Paul Merson said about Tottenham. “What I would say is that the Arsenal players are at their ceiling. They’re playing as well as they can and there isn’t too much more in the locker. They had a day against Brighton where they dropped off that level and they got beaten. If you take a couple of players out who are very influential in that team and things aren’t great. The squad’s not big and Mikel Arteta virtually picks the same players all the time and against Brighton, they bumped into a team who had nothing to play for and who had a free swing.”

“I still feel Arsenal are in it because Tottenham has still got a Tottenham in them. I don’t mean that in a horrible way, but they still have got a Tottenham in them. Everyone was going mad about them but they could’ve been blown away in the first half against Aston Villa,” he added. “Villa should’ve been out of sight and they only have to have one of those days in the next seven weeks. The 4-0 win over Villa covered over the cracks. They did some great stuff, don’t get me wrong, but in the first half Hugo Lloris had to make save after save.”
