Sherwood: Tottenham facing struggle to make top four

Former Tottenham Head Coach Tim Sherwood believes that his old club will struggle to achieve their goal of finishing in the Premier League’s top four due to a lack of attacking options, Talksport has reported.

Sherwood’s successor, Mauricio Pochettino, failed to add a new striker to his squad over the summer, meaning that he is left with only Emmanuel Adebayor, Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado to choose from.

The North London club got off to a strong start in the league by beating West Ham United and Queens Park Rangers without conceding a goal, but a 3-0 reverse at home to fellow top four challengers Liverpool has suggested that they are in need of further reinforcements if they are to have a serious chance of Champions League qualification.

And Sherwood, who led the team to sixth place last season after being appointed in December 2013, has said that Pochettino may struggle to improve on that achievement due to his lack of forwards. He said: “Tottenham are one striker short of challenging for a top four spot. It doesn’t get any easier to break into the top four.

“The emergence of Liverpool has put everyone’s nose out because it’s another spot which looks like it’s going to be taken. Brendan has done a great job there.”
