Tottenham Hotspur could fight to challenge the top four, claimed Gary Lineker, former England striker turned popular soccer pundit.
While the clubs likely to be in the top four are Chelsea and Manchester United, Lineker argues that Liverpool and Manchester City are expected to fight for the title.
For the Champions League spot, Arsenal should wage a tough fight, expects BBC pundit, but as they feel their squad is a little light they may struggle to do so.
“For me, Arsenal is more likely to trouble the top four than Tottenham,” Lineker wrote for The Sun.
“My old club has a few players coming to the end, and they look a little light on me.”
“And if Harry Kane or Son Heung-min were injured, they would be very light, despite the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty.”
Lineker is absolutely right here. Mourinho stated at yesterday’s press conference that he needs to sign a striker this summer.
The North London has not been able to sign a good back-up striker for Kane, although they have been linked to a host of strikers for the past 12 months or so.
Three players signed this summer – Joe Hart, Doherty, and Hojbjerg – but many feel they still need more signings.
