Bacary Sagna thinks Tottenham performances are just a flash in the pan

Former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will experience a ‘collapse’ this season following their promising beginning.

Sagna, aged 40, has raised doubts about the Tottenham ability to compete for the Premier League title, specifically questioning the depth of talent beyond their captain, Heung-Min Son.

“The title race will be between Arsenal and Manchester City, Spurs will collapse, as usual,” Sagna told Paddy Power. “And that’s not just me speaking as an Arsenal fan. I don’t see them being consistent enough all season.

“Apart from Heung-Min Son, I don’t see anyone in that team that can lead the team or play a vital role in Spurs’ title race. I have respect for the players, and they play good football under a good coach, but the season is very long, and I don’t see them competing on a long-term basis. They started well, and they can qualify for the Champions League, but I don’t see them competing for the title.”

Spurs currently occupy the top spot in the Premier League standings, sharing the same number of points as Mikel Arteta’s team, thanks to their undefeated performance at the start of the season.

Following their latest 1-0 victory against Luton Town, in which his team played with ten players after Yves Bissouma received a red card, Postecoglou expressed the squad’s ambition to alter the team’s “destiny,” as they have been without a trophy since 2008.

The Spurs boss will seek to capitalize on the impressive beginning he has experienced in the Premier League, as he readies his squad to welcome London rivals Fulham to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the upcoming weekend.
