Gary Neville believes that Tottenham’s title challenge this season should be “celebrated”.

The Lilywhites have been Chelsea’s closest challengers for the Premier League title in recent weeks and are second in the table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men had been keeping up the pressure on the west London side before their 1-0 loss to West Ham United last week allowed Chelsea to move a step closer to the title.

Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night to leave them just one win from being crowned champions.

And former Manchester United defender Neville has given his honest take on Tottenham’s season under Pochettino.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Neville said: “I don’t go along with the theory that they have to win a trophy to make it a success for this team.

“This is the best Tottenham team I’ve seen in my lifetime, the most exciting.

“You think about the shambles Mauricio Pochettino picked up a few years ago… for me, he’s done a brilliant job and we should celebrate what Tottenham have done this season.”

Chelsea will be crowned Premier League champions on Friday night if they beat West Brom at The Hawthorns.
