Tottenham Hotspur’s impressive recent form has seen them tipped as outsiders for the Premier League title this season, and they have now been given the seal of approval from an Arsenal legend.
Speaking on Soccer Saturday, Paul Merson admitted that Mauricio Pochettino’s side “are as good as anybody at the moment” and considers them contenders in what appears to be a wide-open title race.
Spurs are fifth in the table and unbeaten since an opening-day defeat to Manchester United. They are only two points behind the fourth-placed Gunners and five adrift of leaders Manchester City.
Victory over champions Chelsea at White Hart Lane tomorrow could take the Lilywhites to within two points of the Premier League summit and perhaps ignite dreams of a first English title since 1960-61.
