Premier league news Graeme Souness makes bold Tottenham and Gareth Bale suggestion Last spor news
MetiNews.Com - Graeme Souness has made a bold prediction about Tottenham but it does hinge on whether the returning Gareth Bale can stay fit following his loan move from Real Madrid.
Breaking News ! Former Liverpool midfielder turned pundit Graeme Souness says Tottenham 'will finish top four' if they can keep Gareth Bale fit. Bale returned to North London on a loan deal after seven years with Real Madrid and featured from the bench as Spurs' suffered a crushing blow against West Ham today, blowing a three-goal lead and conceding the equaliser four minutes into stoppage time. Just what Bale will add to Tottenham in his second spell remains to be seen with only a cameo off the bench to go off so far, but nevertheless, Souness believes that if the Welshman stays fit, Jose Mourinho's men will finish in the top four this season. “The rest of the players would’ve got a lift from him being there," he said on Sky Sports. "The standards would’ve gone up. Everyone gets a lift, and I come back to it, the challenge for Spurs is keeping him as fit as possible and getting plenty of minutes out of him.
. Everyone gets a lift when a great player comes to your football club.” Souness also spoke about Spurs duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, who have both enjoyed excellent starts to the season, continuing their good form with three goals between them on Sunday. Asked if the pair get the best out of each other, he replied: "I think so, I don’t think you can afford to play against this Spurs team with such a high line, like Southampton did, and they never learned from it and got punished severely.

"I just think when you look at what they’ve got in that front three, they could be having a miserable day and still end up on the winning side. "The team could be having a miserable day, but with those three in the game, they are fabulous, top players, who can take games without the rest of them being at their best.”
