Former Liverpool star Stan Collymore has predicted Tottenham will finish second in the Premier League behind Chelsea who will win the title.
Tottenham slipped to a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham last time out, failing to close the gap on Chelsea.
The gap currently stands at four points, however Chelsea face Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
If Antonio Conte’s side win versus Boro they would go seven points clear with only three games left to play, meaning if they beat West Brom next Friday, the title is sealed.
Collymore’s predictions come from his Boyle Sports column, where he wrote: “Spurs’ loss at West Ham of course means the title could be wrapped up by Friday [when Chelsea play West Brom], leaving a weird two day lull before Spurs get the chance to respond on Sunday which is a huge shame for me.
“Spurs have provided the highlights of the season with their young manager and players playing some gorgeous football.”
The former Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa striker predicts Tottenham will beat Man United in their next game, before drawing away at Leicester and finishing the season with victory at Hull.
Collymore also predicts Chelsea will win the title, claiming victory in their next two games.
He also believes Man City and Liverpool will make up the rest of the top four, and finish in the Champions League places.
Meaning Arsenal (fifth) and Man United (sixth) are the sides to miss out of the top four according to Collymore’s predictions.
Tottenham fans will hope his predictions do not come completely true, but it is unlikely Chelsea will slip up against Middlesbrough or West Brom.
