Former Tottenham boss David Pleat feels his old club can still finish in third place.

QPR did Spurs a favour with victory over Arsenal yesterday.

Pleat told the Sunday Mirror: “It’s still possible to ­finish third.

“Spurs have played some very good games and had some very good wins this ­season. It reminds me a bit of that 1986-87 campaign. We played some brilliant stuff.

“Mind you, I think only four of the ­current side would get into that side.

“Gareth Bale would, certainly.

“The two full-backs – Kyle Walker and Assou-Ekotto – and maybe Luka Modric. We had such great players.”
