Merson predicts Spurs will ‘melt’ in Premier League title race

Former Arsenal attacker Paul Merson has written off Spurs chances of winning the Premier League, claiming Mauricio Pochettino’s will ‘melt’ during the title race.

Merson recently claimed that Arsenal are 20 years away from winning the Premier League and it seems he doesn’t have much positive to say about the Gunners’ North London rivals either.

“They’re six points behind… But we see what happens with Tottenham, don’t we? They get into a good position, they’ve got Wolves at home and then they melt,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“When the pressure is off they go three goals up in 20 minutes at Cardiff. The shackles are off.

“Three days before they have a chance to win the Premier League and they didn’t have a shot in the second-half!

“So for me, I don’t give them a chance – I don’t think they’ve got it.”

Spurs currently sit in third place in the table after 21 games, four points behind second-placed Man City and six behind leaders Liverpool.
