Tottenham will NOT win the Premier League title this season, as they don’t have sufficient cowl for star attackers Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.
That is in keeping with Watford ahead and talkSPORT Breakfast host Troy Deeney, who insists claiming a primary ever Premier League trophy this time period is out of Spurs’ grasp.
The Lilywhites have began the 2020/21 marketing campaign strongly, and Sunday’s defeat of Brighton moved them as much as second – simply two factors behind early leaders Liverpool after seven video games.
Their spectacular early season kind has been largely right down to the fantastic attacking feats of strike companions Kane and Son, with the previous netting six targets and aiding EIGHT already this time period, and Son main the scoring charts with eight targets in simply seven matches.
However no different participant has scored greater than as soon as for Spurs thus far this Premier League season, with Gareth Bale becoming a member of Lucas Moura, Serge Aurier and Tanguy Ndombele with one aim when he netted the winner towards Brighton on Sunday.
Huge issues are anticipated of Bale however he’s clearly nonetheless working his means again to full health following his lack of soccer at Actual Madrid over the previous yr.
And Deeney truly doubts whether or not Bale will have the ability to full an entire season, which is able to trigger Spurs critical points ought to Kane or Son be sidelined by damage.
Requested by Laura Woods if Tottenham can win the Premier League on Monday’s talkSPORT Breakfast, Deeney replied: “Can they? Sure, they’ll. However, will they? I’d in all probability keep on with no.
“I believe over the course of a season – and the mid-week confirmed it – in the event that they had been to get accidents to Kane or Son, have they acquired someone who can step up and rating the targets and hold them going?
“Bale has had his accidents so you may’t depend on him. I don’t imply that negatively, however are you able to sit there and say, ‘he’s going to be match all yr spherical’?
“I believe in the end they are going to all the time concede targets, so I believe they may simply fall quick [of winning the title].
“However I’d say prime 4.”
