Souness warns top-four chasers Spurs trio can pull off explosive CL finish
Posted On March 8, 2021
Graeme Souness believes that Harry Kane, Gareth Bale and Son Heung-min will score Tottenham’s way into the Premier League’s top four if they remain fit.
Spurs put on another dazzling show against Crystal Palace on Sunday after blasting past Burnley last weekend.
Bale netted a brace either side of half time and received an assist from Kane as he did against the Clarets.
Kane then netted a double of his own, with Son supplying his second goal as Spurs ran out comfortable winners.
The win is a third in succession in the top flight for Jose Mourinho’s men, who have climbed to sixth.
However, they have eyes on a top-four finish and have a game in hand on fourth-placed Chelsea. What’s more, Souness told Sky Sports that he can see Spurs reaching the Champions League in this vein of form.
“If they can keep that front three on the pitch, if you can guarantee Spurs will keep Bale, Son and Harry Kane fit between now and the end of the season in every game, I think they will get into the top four,” the pundit said.
“They will score their way into that.”
Bale’s recent prominence to form is arguably the greatest change in recent weeks for Spurs.
Indeed, Son and Kane have proved crucial all season and took their combined tally for the season to 42 goals and 32 assists against Palace.
Bale, though, initially struggled with fitness problems before struggling for game time under Mourinho.
As such, yielding four goals and and an assist from three successive Premier League starts has added to Spurs’ danger.
The north London club return to action on Thursday when facing Dinamo Zagreb in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie.
Mourinho hails Tottenham reaction
But despite running away with victory against Palace, Tottenham had to react to Christian Benteke’s equaliser right before half time.
They did so in strong fashion and boss Mourinho admitted that conceding at such a time could bring out negative thoughts in the dressing room immediately after.
However, he revealed how his stars used their solid recent results as a springboard to get another win.
