Robbie Savage says Tottenham Hotspur are one of six Premier League clubs capable of winning the title this season.

The north London side drew 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon after Dele Alli’s added-time equaliser cancelled out Nacer Chadli’s opener at The Hawthorns.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are in third place in the Premier League table and a point behind leaders Manchester City and their derby rivals Arsenal.

Tottenham, though, are the only club in the Premier League that haven’t lost a game so far following five victories and three draws.

However, Savage believes Tottenham will face stern competition for the Premier League title given the form of their title rivals.

“I think [Tottenham] have got as much a chance as Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man Utd. You are the only unbeaten team and you’re doing this without Harry Kane,” Savage told BBC Radio Five Live.

Tottenham challenged Leicester City for the Premier League title for much of the 2015-16 season before a four-game winless run to end the campaign saw Pochettino’s side finish in third place.
