Tottenham Hotspurs 14/1 to finish top 2 in EPL

by Thomas

Tottenham Hotspur’s Clint Dempsey believes that the club can finish in the top two of the Premier League this season and has warned Manchester City, who currently sit in second place, that they are out to catch them. The are currently 14/1 at bet365 to achieve this.

dempsey-believes-tottenhamSpurs have lost just one game in their last nine and have won their last three in the Premier League, form that has seen them move up to third position in the top flight.Andre Villas-Boas took a while to get settled in North London, but it seems as though the Lilywhites are really starting to click under the Portuguese boss.

With the welcome return from injury of Scott Parker and Benoit Assou-Ekotto as well, the squad looks to be strong and there is no doubt that a few new faces will be arriving at White Hart Lane this month.
The USA international is enjoying his time at the club right now after a slow start and he believes that Tottenham can challenge mega-rich Man City.

When asked if second was a realistic target, Dempsey said: “That’s the goal.”

He then added: “Everybody wants to be pushing for great things and doing something special in their careers. We have the quality in our team and there’s no reason why we shouldn’t think that.”

It should be what they are targeting, but third place might be a more realistic aim for the London side. With Chelsea, Arsenal and Everton looking like they will all battle it out for the top four along with Spurs, it shows you just how competitive it is going to be.

Also, as Newcastle United did last season, a team can come from nowhere and challenge for a Champions League spot.

If we look at some of the betting for Tottenham’s season, you will see that they are out at 14/1 to finish in the top two this season.

A top four finish might be more likely and Spurs are at 5/4 to land a Champions League spot.

As for Dempsey’s campaign, he is a 20/1 shot to be the leading scorer in the top flight for the club, with Jermain Defoe the big favourite at 1/4.

It is certainly an exciting time to be involved with Tottenham Hotspur right now.
