Tottenham Hotspur sit top of the Premier League with an impressive start to the Premier League season. Home wins over Manchester United and Liverpool (albeit) a little help from VAR, plus an away draw at North London rivals Arsenal have helped Spurs stay unbeaten after 8 Premier League games.
After losing Harry Kane on the eve of the Premier League, no Spurs fan would have thought they would be sitting at the summit of English Football as we come into the International break. Big Ange has done a marvelous job, playing some great football and his team have scored 18 goals in the process.
Hung Min Son has once again been the shining light up front with crucial goals, plus James Maddison has settled into the side really well and with a new Goalkeeper and Centre Back pairing Spurs have played some great football and capitalised where they can.
Wins over all of the newly promoted clubs have helped Spurs reach the top of the League and the balance to the side looks good. Sarr and Basouma in the centre of midfield bring a lot of energy into the side, when in previous seasons Spurs have lacked that drive for 90 minutes.
Eric Dier and Ben Davies are now out the side and the change in the way Spurs play has been noticeable with the total football they are playing and no panicking and conceding early goals away from home, which was common last season.
The only concern for Spurs until the transfer window opens in January is that they do have a light squad to any injuries to the key players mentioned above, could mean a drop off in form.
One of the key positives for Spurs to remain in the hunt for a ‘Top 4’ push this season is they are not in Europe and can solely concentrate on the Premier League. With rivals for ‘Top 4’ in Newcastle, Liverpool and Arsenal all in Europe and likely to remain in competitions well into 2024, this may cause their Premier League form to dip a little.
After the international break Spurs have some favorable fixtures with Fulham, Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Wolves next to face and none of these should concern Big Ange as he looks to keep the unbeaten run going.
Newcastle have dropped a few points this season, but have played Man City away. They will look to close the gap on Spurs and the two meetings between these side could be crucial in deciding the ‘Top 4’ finish.
The ‘To Finish in The Top 4’ in the Premier League this season looks different in odds to what it did at the start of the season.
Manchester United have failed to start the season well and with defeats at Arsenal and Tottenham, plus home defeats to Brighton & Crystal Palace, they are a long way off a Top 4 finish.
Spurs have taken advantage of this, but going unbeaten in 8 matches and also beating Man Utd at home.
With their good start and not having Europe to worry about, our punters.pub best bet in this market is Tottenham to finish in the ‘Top 4’ at 5/4 with Bet365
