first_imgDarren Anderton has poured cold water on the idea that Tottenham can secure Champions League football this season and believes they will only end up sixth.Spurs finished in the same position last year in the Premier League, but there is a belief under new boss Mauricio Pochettino they can improve on that this time round.However, former Tottenham star Anderton believes the top four will prove beyond the north London club once again.“I think they will probably finish sixth. I just think the top four will probably be the same,” he told the Sports Bar.“I think it’s difficult to break into that and of course, [Manchester] United have got to do better this year. So I think they will probably get into the top five.“I don’t think that’s a bad thing, it’s just not easy to break into there. We had a couple of years when we were in there but we’ve fallen away the last couple of years. Last year was a bit disappointing.”Unlike many clubs, Tottenham have not been very active this summer, only adding three players in the shape of defenders Ben Davies and Eric Dier, plus goalkeeper Michel Vorm.But while Pochettino has claimed he is happy with his “unbelievable” squad, Anderton reckons they are in need of adding some more exciting players if they want to improve this season.Anderton added: “The signings haven’t set the world alight in terms of excitement for us but we’ll see what happens in the next couple of the weeks,”“I don’t think it will be acceptable for Spurs fans [not finishing in the top four] but I think it will be acceptable for the squad that they have got at the moment.” .last_img read more
