Paul Merson has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur are the worst side to watch in the Premier League at the moment.
Tottenham started the season well and they sat top of the table earlier in the campaign. But they have been on a poor run of form of late which was started by their 2-1 loss to Liverpool in December.
They have only won twice in the league from their previous ten games. This came in the form of victories against Leeds United and Sheffield United.
Included in this run have been five defeats. Three of these have come in their most outings against Liverpool, Brighton and Chelsea.
This poor form has seen them fall down to eighth in the Premier League. They are now seven points behind Liverpool in fourth, but Spurs do have a game in hand.
Merson told Sky Sports News that he was “so disappointed” with Tottenham in their defeat on Thursday to Chelsea:
“Some Tottenham fans will see this, while some might think I’m being harsh, but Tottenham are the worst team in the Premier League to watch, at the moment.
“We’ve all seen teams play like this, of course we have, but not with the quality of squad Spurs have. I was so disappointed in Spurs. I could not believe what I was watching.
“This is as bad a football as you’ll see, at the moment. Even West Brom are going and having a go. Newcastle went to Everton and had a go. It’s just hope football. Hope that they score first and then they have something to play for.”
