Former Arsenal and Tottenham boss George Graham believes Spurs will be the ones to miss out on the top four in the Premier League this season.
Graham believes Arsenal will pip Spurs to the final Champions League spot, but he does not believe that would constitute a poor season for Andre Villas-Boas' side.
Graham told the Sunday Mirror: "Tottenham will be the ones to lose out.
"They have a difficult run-in and they have played a game more than the others.
"But I want to stress that it would be anything but a disaster for them to make it a poor season. In fact, I would say the opposite.
"He (Villas-Boas) has been assembling a squad and has done well to be in such a high position in the league and still be involved in the Europa League.
"He can build on that. And I hope he can keep Gareth Bale - for the club's sake and the player's sake.
"It is unfair on Bale to compare him to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. He would really benefit from another season in England."
