Phil Thompson believes Chelsea and Arsenal are ‘fragile’ mentally and will miss out on a top-four end.
Spurs at present occupy third spot and appeared a useless cert to qualify for Europe’s premier competitors subsequent season however have amassed only one level from their final four league video games and are actually in peril of lacking out.
Arsenal have closed the hole behind their london rivals to only one level following their necessary 2-Zero win over Manchester United, who sit inside hanging distance of the 2 sides in fifth place.
Chelsea are solely a degree behind United and it’s set to be an extremely shut run race for a top-four end.
However Liverpool legend Thompson is satisfied that Spurs have higher ‘togetherness’ than each Chelsea and Arsenal, whereas United are reaping the advantages of the ‘Solskjaer effect’, which ought to carry them each into subsequent season’s Champions League.
‘Chelsea are still a bit fragile, on and off the pitch,’ he informed Sky Sports activities. ‘It doesn’t appear to be fairly proper and outcomes are fluctuating, fairly related with Arsenal actually.
‘Though they appear to have good outcomes, you can’t rely on them after which they’ve a few dangerous outcomes. It’s how they will capitulate in video games.
‘Manchester United ought to be fourth as a result of it’s the Solskjaer impact and the feel-good impact of what he has accomplished. It will most likely be sufficient to see them in there on the finish of the season, they’re in a better place than the opposite two. It will be very tight between all of them however that’s how I see it panning out.
‘Although Tottenham have had a dodgy spell, football-wise they have a bit more togetherness than Arsenal and Chelsea so you can see them having enough to win their games, as well as getting the players fit such as Harry Kane and Dele Alli. Kane is a more consistent goalscorer and I would rely upon him more than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Arsenal and Gonzalo Higuain at Chelsea.’
