Paul Scholes: Why I worry about Tottenham Hotspur

Paul Scholes questions Tottenham Hotspur's depth to maintain sustained title challenge

Paul Scholes has questioned whether Tottenham Hotspur have the necessary depth to launch a sustained top-four challenge.

The north London side are in fifth place and a mere four points behind joint leaders Manchester City and Leicester City following a stalemate with Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League games since a 1-0 defeat by Manchester United at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season.

However, former Red Devils midfielder Scholes is unsure whether Tottenham’s current form will last the duration of the season due to their limited squad strength.

Scholes told BT Sport: “I’m always really impressed with Tottenham. But I worry a little bit with Tottenham in terms of whether they have the strength and depth really.”

Spurs were 4-1 winners against title favourites Manchester City earlier this season, whilst Pochettino’s men have drawn with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool in recent months.
