Tottenham won't make top four - Carragher

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher doesn't expect Tottenham to win the title or make the top four this season. 

Writing on his column for Sky Sports, the former England international believes that Andre Villas-Boas' side will have to wait another year for Champions League football. 

Spurs made a strong start to the Premier League season, but suffered a major setback in their last outing as they went down by three goals to nil at home to West Ham United. 

After seven league games, the north London outfit sit outside the top four in sixth place and, despite making a number of new signings over the summer, Carragher believes they will come up short once again in this campaign. 

On a potential title challenge, the Sky sports pundit said: "Tottenham have started well this season but I think they will find it very difficult to win the Premier League.

"They have spent a lot of money and when you do that people start to talk about you in terms of the title, and if they are within touching distance with 10-15 games to go they will have a chance.

"But Spurs have slipped out of the top four and the main aim when you do that is to get back in it, rather than looking to immediately win the league, and I don't think they are where Man City, Chelsea and Man United are at the minute."

Carragher believes Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea will make the Champions League places come the end of the season and also believes the start Arsenal have made will make it hard for Spurs to crack the top four. 

He continued by saying: "And because of the sides they are up against, I reckon they might just miss out on a place in the top four; it's hard to say United, City and Chelsea won't get in those Champions League spots and Arsenal have started like a house on fire."
