Moussa Sissoko thinks Tottenham Hotspur can still finish in a top-four position, but recent history suggests there is little hope of improving their lowly league position.

The pattern of poor form in the league has been established since the second half of last season, when Tottenham won only three of their final 12 league games.



Football folklore dictates that the second international break of the season is a realistic time to assess where teams might finish, and it does not look good for Spurs, who were somewhat fortunate to escape with a 1-1 scoreline against Sheffield United – their fifth draw in 12 Premier League games.



So perhaps Sissoko spoke in hope more than expectation when he was asked if qualifying for the Champions League was now out of reach.

This time last year, Tottenham had not drawn in the league and lost three, only one more than at this stage this season.

When we come back [after the international break] we will try to catch the teams in front of us and see where we are at the end of the season.” There is little evidence, however, to suggest this a temporary blip.

A year ago Manchester City were top, Liverpool second, Chelsea third and Spurs above Arsenal in fourth – and that was where those five clubs ended the season.
