Harry Redknapp gives verdict on whether Tottenham can win Premier League title

Harry Redknapp sees no reason why Tottenham can't contend for the Premier League title.

Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT that he thinks former club Tottenham can challenge for the Premier League title this season.

Tottenham have lost just twice in their 19 Premier League games this season, and have now racked up three wins in a row after Monday's dramatic 2-1 win over Watford.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has earned plenty of plaudits this season having brought through Eric Dier and Dele Alli in midfield, whilst he has also put together an outstanding centre back pairing in Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.

With the meanest defence in the division, a bright, energetic midfield and a striker in top form in Harry Kane, Tottenham appear to have it all at the moment, and they sit just four points off top spot in the Premier League ahead of this weekend's trip to Everton.

Fans are now starting to dream of a stunning title win, given that Arsenal and Manchester City have both had their recent struggles, whilst Manchester United sit nine points behind leaders Arsenal right now.

In an unpredictable Premier League season, it's at least feasible that Tottenham can continue this sensational form and stun the world by winning the title - and their former manager Harry Redknapp agrees with that assertion.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Redknapp has claimed that he thinks Tottenham are a real Premier League title candidate this season, if they can keep up their performances in the second half of the season, given that no team has really broken away from the chasing pack so far.

"Tottenham have been excellent so far this season," said Redknapp. "If they put the same type of run together in the second half of the campaign there’s no reason why they can’t [make a title challenge], it’s wide open this year. Nobody is running away with it."

"Arsenal were strongly fancied after they beat Manchester City but then they get beat 4-0 by Southampton, there’s something not right with City at the moment and Leicester have still got a chance, it’s been incredible what they’ve achieved, a miracle. The title race is wide open and Tottenham have got a real opportunity. They’re looking very strong, they’re right up there and there’s no reason they can’t have a crack at it," he added.
