Could Tottenham’s relegation form see them relegated?

15 games, 15 points.

That is not the form of a title chasing team. It is not the form of a mid-table team. It is the form a team in the midst of a relegation battle.

LLDLLWWLWLLDWDL is Tottenham’s form over the last 15 games. Just Watford and Brighton are in worse form.

Even my basic maths tell me that 15 points from 15 games is a point a game. Over a 38 game season that would multiple up to 38 points. Last season Cardiff went down with 34 points.

It is actually surprising that Arsenal have the 3rd best form in the league, taking into account how they fell away in the closing stages of the season.

If Tottenham find themselves in the relegation after half a dozen games, surely they have to be considered relegation contenders rather than Champions League challengers?
