Alan Shearer has expressed his opinion on where Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur will finish in the Premier League after yesterday’s draw.

Spurs fought back valiantly twice against Manchester United yesterday, but may be disappointed not to take the three points.

Ange’s brave and exciting team showed all the hallmarks of the team that Tottenham fans have come to love again this season.

Rodrigo Bentancur, in particular, put in an excellent performance, which was praised by Jamie Redknapp after the game.

With these strong performances, which often lead to Spurs taking the three points, it is certainly interesting to consider where the team will finish in the league.

Eighth place last season was not enough for Tottenham – the club belongs in European football.

After last night’s game, Alan Shearer gave his opinion on where Tottenham Postecoglou will finish this campaign.

Speaking to “The Rest Is Football” podcast, Shearer announced his return to European football.

However, some Spurs fans feel he slightly underestimates their potential.

Alan Shearer thinks that Angelo Postecoglou’s Tottenham are still in contention for fourth place:

Shearer said in a podcast, “I’ve been impressed with them and I think they’ll finish fourth or fifth.”

Spurs are currently in fifth place with the same points difference as Arsenal, but have played one game more.

The gap to Aston Villa is now three points as the two sides played out a draw on their travels yesterday.

Although Shearer thinks the game will be close, Postecoglou is certainly hopeful that his young Tottenham side will challenge for a place in the top four.

The Spurs boss will surely target Villa and Arsenal in the coming months as Manchester City and Liverpool look set to clash again in the title race.

Fortunately for the top five, West Ham United are some six points behind Spurs in sixth place.

Postecoglou has laid some excellent foundations this season and everyone at the club seems to believe in his ideas.

Spurs now have a break until 26 January when they take on Man City in the FA Cup.

And it will be interesting to see if they recruit a talented young central midfielder during that period.
