Jamie Carragher: This is my big worry for Tottenham, fans will not like his comments
By Amir Mir
Jamie Carragher believes finishing in the top four at the end of the season is still a “big worry” for Tottenham.
The former Liverpool defender made these comments after Spurs’ Champions League rivals, Manchester City dropped points at home to Stoke on Wednesday night.
Pep Guardiola’s side are level on points with the north London club in the table with the duo occupying two of the top four spots in the table alongside leaders Chelsea and Liverpool.
At this moment in time, Spurs are in second place on 56 points from their 27 matches, six points ahead of fifth-placed Arsenal who have a game in hand.
Sky Sports pundit Carragher believes there are a number of managers who will come under pressure if they don’t win the league with Chelsea leading the table by ten points.

“I think top four is still a big worry for City and even Tottenham,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“There’s four or five, maybe even six top managers in this league who are going to be criticised if they don’t win the league.”
The White Hart Lane faithful will not be happy with Carragher’s comments given the form and current league position of their side and what they achieved last season.
Mauricio Pochettino guided his team to third place last term, one place below their bitter rivals Arsenal and two places behind surprise winners Leicester City.
This despite, the London club being the closest challengers to the Foxes for the title for the majority of the campaign before they imploded at the end with defeats at Chelsea and Newcastle.
In recent weeks, they have climbed up the table comfortably beating the likes of Stoke, and most recently Everton on home soil.
