Liverpool legend: Tottenham are a proper team, this is my only worry for them
Graeme Souness delivers his verdict on what he has seen from Tottenham in the Premier League this season
Graeme Souness has been very impressed by what he has seen from Tottenham this season but warned that Spurs could struggle badly if Harry Kane were to pick up an injury.
The Lilywhites have been in good form in recent weeks and were 4-1 winners over Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday afternoon.
Spurs are currently gearing up for their crunch clash against Chelsea at White Hart Lane as Mauricio Pochettino’s men look to become the first team to beat Chelsea in 13 Premier League games.
Tottenham finished third last season despite being Leicester City’s closest challengers for much of the campaign.
Liverpool legend Souness is a big fan of Tottenham but admits that they could struggle should they lose Kane to a serious injury at any point.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Tottenham, Souness said: “Tottenham have undoubted quality.
“We’ve mentioned Harry Kane, Dele Alli, they look solid at the back. They’re a proper outfit.
“The only concern we have is if Harry Kane was to have a period injured – they would be in trouble.”
Tottenham reached the Champions League group stage this season but failed to progress as they were parachuted down into the last 32 of the Europa League.
