Arsenal legend Martin Keown comments on Tottenham’s title hopes

Martin Keown discusses Tottenham's Premier League title hopes this season...

Martin Keown has admitted that Tottenham Hotspur’s impressive victory over Manchester City in the Premier League last weekend has proved that Mauricio Pochettino’s men are title challengers.

The north London side produced an impressive display at White Hart Lane as they overcame the Premier League leaders to become the first team to take any points off Pep Guardiola’s men with a 2-0 victory.

That result lifted Spurs up to second place in the Premier League table and just one point behind the leaders after seven games of the new season.

Tottenham were Leicester City’s closest title challengers last season as Mauricio Pochettino’s men finished third in the table after eventually being pipped by Arsenal on the final day of the campaign.

It remains to be seen whether Spurs can continue their strong start to this season, but former Arsenal star Keown admits that he has been impressed by what he has seen from the Lilywhites so far this season.

Speaking in an interview with The Daily Mail, Keown said: “We will only know that [Spurs are the real deal] if they win the Premier League.

“Until the final fence last season, Tottenham demonstrated they were equipped to challenge — now they have shown City this title is by no means theirs.”
