Scott Minto has backed Tottenham to secure second spot in the Premier League at the end of the season.

Sky Sports pundit Minto believes the north London club will not win the title but believes they are “capable” of finishing second ahead of “some really, really good teams”.

Supporters will be thrilled with his comments because it means Spurs could finally finish above their rivals Arsenal.

Under Arsene Wenger’s 20 year reign, Tottenham have never finished above the Gunners which has given their supporters the bragging rights for a number of years.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side take on Everton in a Premier League clash at the weekend and Minto backed the Argentine to secure another win in their quest to secure a top two spot.

“I just think Spurs are fighting for that second spot,” Minto told Coral’s official YouTube account. “I don’t think they can win the title, that is Chelsea’s, but I think they are more than capable of finishing second against some really, really good teams around them.

“These are the types of games they have to win at home if they are to finish second and I believe they will.

“Spurs to win to nil and Harry Kane to get on the scoresheet.”

At this moment in time, Pochettino’s side are in second place, ten points behind leaders Chelsea and three points ahead of fourth-placed Arsenal who have played a game less than their rivals.

Spurs will be looking to keep hold of second place when they welcome Europa League chasers Everton to White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Ronald Koeman’s side are sitting five places below the London-based club in the table and go into the mouth-watering tie having not tasted defeat in the league since mid-December.

Equally, their opponents are unbeaten on home soil this term, picking up points against the likes of Manchester City, West Ham and Chelsea.
