Slaven Bilic believes that Tottenham are the best team in the Premier League this season – ahead of Chelsea.

Chelsea took another big step towards winning the title this season when they secured a 3-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

However, Tottenham kept up the pace on the Blues when they beat Arsenal 2-0 at White Hart Lane to keep them to within four points of Antonio Conte’s men.

Tottenham have the chance to move to within one point of Chelsea when they take on West Ham at the London Stadium on Friday night.

And West Ham manager Bilic believes that Mauricio Pochettino’s men have been the best team in the Premier League this season.

Bilic is quoted as saying by Metro: “That game is always big, it’s a derby, and it can’t be just an ordinary game,’

“Then, if you add to that that they need points to stay in the race and we need points to climb or to make us safe.

“We’re going to approach it in a very positive way, knowing we are playing, for me, against the best team in the league.

“Hopefully, I’m going to enjoy it, but it’s going to be a very nervous game. We will have to be on top of our game.”

Tottenham confirmed that they will finish above Arsenal in the table this season for the first time in 22 years thanks to their win over their bitter local rivals at White Hart Lane at the weekend.
