Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts insists that the club are in real danger of failing to win a Premier League game for the foreseeable future, following their derby day disaster.
The club have endured an inconsistent start to the season and actually opened their campaign with three wins on the trot, beating Manchester City, Wolves, and Watford.
Those results saw Nuno Espirito Santo win the Manager of the Month award in the Premier League and have since lost 3-0 to both Crystal Palace and Chelsea, before Sunday’s 3-1 reverse against Arsenal in the North London Derby.
Will Spurs beat Arsenal?
Next up, Santo’s men play Aston Villa, Newcastle United, and West Ham United in the top-flight.
Villa beat Manchester United 1-0 at the weekend; Newcastle have ground out draws against Leeds United and Watford in recent weeks, while West Ham United have only lost once this term, to the Red Devils, and that loss only came about as a result of a missed penalty in added time from Mark Noble.
Roberts is concerned that the form of Spurs’ next few opponents means that it is difficult to see when Spurs will next record a win in the top-flight.
Roberts said: “You’ve got Aston Villa who are flying at the moment, you’ve got Man United, Newcastle, West Ham and I think Everton.
“You’re looking at it and thinking, ‘the way we’re playing, when’s the next three points coming from?’ I’m being serious.”
