“Ironically comment”Jermain Defoe is perfectly right with his comments on Tottenham tittle this season

Jermain Defoe has been discussing Tottenham Hotspur’s title credentials and insists the North London club could win the title this year.

Tottenham have enjoyed an incredible start to life with new manager, Ange Postecoglou, since he took over in the summer.

With attacking football back on the menu, players firing on all cylinders, and results going Tottenham‘s way, the Lilywhites are right in the mix at the top of the Premier League table after ten matches.

Of course, it’s early days, and to sustain any kind of title challenge over 38 games is a huge ask for any team. You only have to look at Arsenal’s capitulation last season to see that.
Manchester City, the reigning champions, will always be the team to beat, but Pep Guardiola’s men have already lost two games this season in an uncharacteristic start to the campaign.

Defoe says Spurs can win the Premier League title

Speaking to Sky Sports about his former club’s chances of being involved come the end of the season, Jermain Defoe was in a defiant mood and claimed Spurs players should be feeling confident right now.

When asked about Spurs’ hopes, Defoe said: “Why not? Internally, of course, you have to stay humble. I know it sounds boring but you have to take each game as it comes, never look too far ahead.

“Deep down, even though there’s a lot of football to be played, if I was in that dressing room I’d think ‘OK we’re playing well’ and I think you have to think like that as players. If you don’t think like that you’re probably in the wrong business.

“But at the same time, I don’t think the manager will be sending that message and I don’t think the players will be expecting to win the league. You’ve got City… you look at Liverpool’s firepower… it’s important to take each game as it comes and make sure those performances don’t drop off. The manager will make sure of that.”

I maintain that a top-four finish would be an unbelievable success for us so early in Postecoglou’s tenure. So much has changed, not just players but the style of play too, and it will take time for us to truly build a sustainable title challenge.
