Tottenham Hotspur have finished third and second in the last two Premier League seasons but the bookmakers think they will drop out of the top four in 2017-18 – and miss out on Champions League football along with their arch-rivals Arsenal.

Spurs have been the last challengers standing to the champions in the previous two campaigns, namely Chelsea in 2016-17 and before that Leicester City even though they were ultimately overhauled for second place by Arsenal.

But after a run of only two Premier League points collected from a possible 12 immediately after the November international break, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have drifted out to 11/10 to finish in the top four this time around as they temporarily even dropped below Burnley in the table.

The bookies’ odds suggest that when the 2018-19 season comes around, fans of both big North London clubs will only have Europa League football to look forward to, in Arsenal’s case for a second consecutive campaign - unless they emulate Mancheser United and lift the trophy.

Tottenham’s place in the top four will be taken, according to the bookies, by Manchester United, who are showing a vast improvement this time around in their league form having finished fifth last season.

Jose Mourinho’s side were the biggest under-achievers in the Premier League last term, mainly because of the number of points they dropped at home due to drawing more than half of their fixtures at Old Trafford.

But United have looked a more adept side so far this season and while a sustained challenge for the title will almost certainly prove beyond them, they will expect to finish comfortably inside the top four – and the bookmakers believe they are a better prospect than reigning champions Chelsea to do so.

The top six were eight points clear of Everton last season, with a further 15 back to the remainder, and at this stage the bookmakers appear unconvinced that any other club can muscle in on the cartel like Leicester City did a couple of years ago.

The Toffees have blown their chance of challenging the ‘big six’ with a poor start to the season that cost manager Ronald Koeman his job, while even though there has been a very promising showing from Burnley so far it is not expected to result in European football for the Clarets via the league.
