Paul Merson believes that Tottenham mixed start to the 2019-20 season has already precluded them from being title contenders.
London club drew games against Premier League champions Manchester City and Arsenal. Mauricio Pocchetino’s side also lost points against Newcastle (1-3)
“Tottenham made Crystal Palace look average. They are a team that have won away to all the big teams, but in the first 45 minutes, Spurs were back to the side we all know on Saturday, but for me it’s already too late for them to catch Liverpool”, said Merson to Sky Sports News.
After five games Tottenham are in 3rd place, with Liverpool seven points ahead having enjoyed a perfect start to their Premier League new season.
