Gary Neville: Tottenham can finish above Liverpool and Arsenal in Premier League this season
Tottenham sit fifth in the Premier League, level on points with Arsenal and five behind leaders Liverpool; Ange Postecoglou was missing seven first-team regulars at Old Trafford for their 2-2 draw with Manchester United
Gary Neville believes Tottenham can finish above Liverpool and Arsenal in the Premier League this season should they keep their players fit.
Spurs' 2-2 draw at Manchester United moved them level on points with fourth-placed Arsenal and five behind leaders Liverpool heading into the second half of the campaign.
Manager Ange Postecoglou was without first-team regulars Heung-Min Son, Pape Sarr, Yves Bissouma, James Maddison, Giovani Lo Celso, Dejan Kulusevski and Ben Davies at Old Trafford yet were the better side - and Sky Sports' Neville belives they can finish as high as second when they're back.
"If they keep their players fit, they are a certainty to finish in the top four and I think they can get to second and third," said Neville.
"With those players back, and if they can get through these next few weeks, I genuinely think they can be better than Arsenal and Liverpool this season.
"It might end up being a good draw in the FA Cup against Manchester City. Go out of that and concentrate completely on the league. But they do need to win a trophy.
"If he wins a trophy, great, but we know in the past when teams have had a really explosive season, they're not usually in Europe or competitions.
"For Ange Postecoglou to get to second or third, which they could do if they have a clean run at it, would be something special."https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/13048274/neville-spurs-can-finish-above-liverpool-and-arsenal
