Pundit delivers verdict on Tottenham’s title hopes this season
Peter Taylor has his say on Tottenham's Premier League title hopes this season...
Peter Taylor is convinced that Tottenham have what it takes to win the Premier League title this season under Mauricio Pochettino.
The Lilywhites have been in fine form in recent weeks and backed up their 2-0 win over Chelsea earlier this month with a thumping 4-0 victory over West Brom at White Hart Lane last weekend.
Tottenham are firmly in the race to win the Premier League title this season and are currently second in the table, seven points behind leaders Chelsea.
Spurs came close to winning the top-flight trophy last season but eventually ended up in third place behind surprise champions Leicester City and second-placed Arsenal.
However, Taylor is convinced that Tottenham have the quality to go one better this season and beat Chelsea to the title.
Speaking in an interview with The Daily Express, Taylor said: “I think Harry Kane is very important again. He’s such a good player – physically fit too.
“He runs all day and that’s what he does so well. Tottenham have a great chance of winning the title – they seem to be improving.
“They seem to have learned from last season. Mauricio Pochettino has a brilliant squad – you can change the full-backs and it doesn’t make too much difference to the team.
“That’s an important position. The midfield has also been improved – Eric Dier was fantastic last year, but Pochettino has brought someone in who keeps him out of the team and now he is playing in another position.
“Pochettino has been incredibly clever and good. He’s got a great squad and if they keep on with the same confidence, they could do very well and have a strong chance.”
Tottenham are currently gearing up for their Premier League clash against Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday night.
