Gary Neville has made his feelings known about Tottenham over the last few weeks. It seems pretty clear that the ex-Manchester United captain and failed Valencia manager just doesn’t like the Lilywhites. A few weeks back he called them spineless and pathetic, and now he’s claimed that they’re the most likely to drop out of the top six, despite being ten points clear of his former club.
Gary Neville believes that Tottenham Hotspur’s place in the Premier League’s top six is the most vulnerable and that Everton should aim to usurp them – although doesn’t believe it will happen just yet.#THFC #COYShttps://t.co/6fwrkNdVTZ

The current Premier League table makes for a nice read for Tottenham fans at the moment. The Lilywhites are third, just six points off of first placed Liverpool despite the fact they still have no stadium, made no summer signings and have suffered a whole host of injury problems this season. However, Gary Neville has still felt the need to slate them and label their position in the top six as ‘vulnerable’.
Neville’s comments actually came from more of an Everton perspective, as he claimed the Toffees should be targetting Tottenham as the club to usurp as they aim to break into the top six. He did also mention that he doesn’t think these changes to the Premier League’s hierarchy will happen anytime soon, but his comments have still irked plenty of Tottenham fans.

Well @GNev2 is normally always praising us but the truth here is he doesn't want to admit Man Utd are the ones most vulnerable, oh and Pochettino isn't going to become Man Utd manager in the summer like we know he's praying for.

Never mind his calamity of a Manchester United team, how does he think Everton can bridge the gap?

The Lilywhites have little love for Gary Neville and tend to just get wound up when he opens his mouth.
