Roy Keane’s blunt response when asked if Tottenham can win the title

The former Manchester United captain plays down talk of Tottenham Hotspur winning the Premier League title

Roy Keane says Tottenham Hotspur have “no chance” of winning the Premier League title this season.

The north London side played out a goalless draw with Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday night to keep their hopes of reaching the Champions League knockout phase alive.

Tottenham are the only unbeaten club left in the Premier League after a run of five victories and three draws in their opening eight top-flight games.

Furthermore, Mauricio Pochettino’s side inflicted a first Premier League defeat on Pep Guardiola after a 2-0 win against leaders Manchester City at White Hart Lane earlier this month.

Asked if Tottenham are capable of winning the Premier League title this season, former Manchester United captain Keane told ITV Sport:

“This idea that they can win the Premier League – no chance!”

When challenged that Tottenham’s unbeaten record would surely suggest they are contenders, Keane added:

“I don’t care. I can’t see them winning it.”

Tottenham will make the trip to Eddie Howe’s in-form Bournemouth side at the Vitality Stadium in Saturday’s early kick-off in the Premier League.
