Graeme Souness delivers honest verdict on Tottenham’s title hopes

Graeme Souness is certain that Tottenham have what it takes to win the Premier League this season

Greame Souness is convinced that Liverpool have what it takes to challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The north London side earned plenty of praise last term for their free-flowing attacking displays as they became the main team to challenge Leicester City in the race for the title.

The Lilywhites ended up being pipped to a second-placed finish by Arsenal on the final day of the campaign but still secured a route into the Champions League thanks to their third-placed finish.

Spurs have started the season strongly and are currently third in the table and just a point behind leaders Manchester City and second-placed Arsenal after eight games.

And former Liverpool star Souness is certain that Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be able to challenge for the top-flight title this term.

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ on Monday morning, Souness said: “The mix of age group they have can only get a lot better. I still see them as being a real threat to win the league this year.

“I think they’ve got a really healthy group.”
