Arsenal great Ian Wright believes that Tottenham Hotspur would be worthy Premier League champions. The North London side are high on confidence after winning their last seven consecutive matches which included a 4-0 thrashing of Bournemouth during the weekend.
The title race is now wide open as leaders Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester United means that they only have a four point advantage over Spurs. Wright believes that, should Spurs manage to usurp Chelsea by the end of the season, they will be worthy champions of England.
He said during an interview with The Sun, “If Tottenham win their first league title since 1961, nobody could say they don’t deserve to be champions. Everyone was resigned to it being a procession rather than a race when Chelsea kicked off this month with a ten-point lead at the top.”
Tottenham’s success this season is in large part due to the attacking prowess of Dele Alli and Harry Kane as well as resolute defending. They have only conceded 22 goals, which is the lowest of any team in the League thus far.
