Micah Richards says there is “no hope” for Tottenham ahead of Sunday
Micah Richards has predicted that Tottenham have very little chance of getting a result ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game away to Leicester City.
All 20 teams will be in action at the same time this weekend for the final round of league fixtures.
Spurs currently sit seventh in the league table and would sneak into the Europa League positions if results went their way.
However, more alarmingly, there is a chance they could be overtaken by teams below them.
Everton and Arsenal would both have the chance to leapfrog Spurs into seventh if the latter drop points against Leicester. A spot in the European Conference League will go to the club that finishes seventh.
Sky Sports pundit Richards delivered a blunt verdict on “awful” Spurs going into the weekend.
“The way Spurs played today, there’s no hope for them. Leicester will beat them comfortably. Spurs were awful today [against Aston Villa],” Richards said, as quoted by Football Daily.
Spurs were miles off it in midweek during their 2-1 home loss against Aston Villa, as interim boss Ryan Mason watched his side fall short of the standard needed in a big game.
A Europa League position will be beyond them if sixth-placed West Ham avoid defeat against Southampton, so they need to focus on at least trying to consolidate seventh.
It’s still unknown who the club’s next permanent manager will be, but whoever it is will have a much better chance of rebuilding if there is at least some form of European football to play next season.
Spurs are perhaps slight underdogs going into their trip to the King Power Stadium to face FA Cup winners Leicester City, but are more than capable of taking three points if the likes of Heung-Min Son and much-talked-about forward Harry Kane turn up with their A-game.
