Are Spurs Still Top 4 Favourites for the 2024/25 Premier League Season?

Ange Postecoglou’s first season with Spurs was full of drama, excitement, and plenty of attacking football. After a promising start, which saw Tottenham go on an impressive 10-game unbeaten run, Spurs gradually tailed off towards the backend of the season, dropping vital points while trying to juggle an injury-ravaged squad. Their final home game of the season even saw them missing 8 key players against Manchester City, including James Maddison. However, despite the injuries, fans would still have liked to see Spurs finish the season with a trophy, having exited the cup competitions early and ultimately missed out on the top 4. But with the 2024/25 season just around the corner, “Big Ange” is looking to turn a corner and make his 2nd season with Tottenham a major success.

Will Spurs Make Top 4 in the 2024/25 Season?

If Spurs are able to make some big summer signings, stay injury-free, and reignite their early-season form from last year, they should be able to make the top 4. Currently, most bookies have them as 2/1 to finish the season in the top 4, with Aston Villa, Liverpool, Newcastle, Chelsea, and Manchester United also given promising odds. Manchester City (1/10) and Arsenal (1/4) are assumed by the bookies to once again enter a title race together, so they’re the leading favourites and only two teams that are seen as virtual guarantees to be inside the top 4 come the end of next season.

Jonathan Ridehalghl, expert analyst from BettingTools, has shared his thoughts on Tottenham’s search for a top 4 position:

“With Spurs finishing fifth place last season, they’ll be more desperate than ever to make the top 4, so you can expect them to cause problems for Villa and Newcastle once the new season kicks off. And if they’re able to get some new signings through the door, they’re a pretty good bet for third or fourth place.”

What Do Spurs Need for a Top 4 Finish?

It’s expected to be a busy summer transfer window for Spurs.

Since the departure of Harry Kane, the club has yet to sign a proper number 9, with Son Heung-min filling the role for the entirety of last season. Despite bagging 17 goals and 10 assists, many believe that Son is still not a natural out-and-out striker and is best out on the wing, which is why Spurs could potentially be looking at a fresh striker for the 2024/25 campaign. Current potential candidates include Ivan Toney and Tammy Abraham, with both of them currently being assessed by the Spurs hierarchy following the news that Richarlison could potentially be leaving the club.

In addition to a new striker, Tottenham could also use a new right-back. Emerson Royal is expected to depart Spurs for AC Milan during the summer, so Spurs have turned their attention to Monaca right-back Vanderson, who would give them a major boost out on that right-hand side. At the same time, there are reports going around that Ange Postecoglou wants to bolster the midfield by signing Weston McKennie, who just finished a great season with Juventus.

There’s also a good chance that Spurs will look to sign an additional winger, too, especially after their injury woes of last season and Timo Werner’s inconsistency. However, due to budget restrictions, Tottenham might have to consider the loan market or free agents, with players like Anthony Martial (just released by Manchester United) potentially coming in. Despite this, though, it’s assumed that Tottenham will remain focused on a new striker above everything else.


The 2024/25 season is set to be an exciting one. It could be the most competitive top 4 race in Premier League history, with Spurs, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea all desperate to get one of those all-important Champions League places. The good news for Spurs fans is that Tottenham are one of the favourites to make it, but they’ll be relying on Ange Postecoglou to avoid the fatal “2nd season” syndrome if this is to happen.
