David Ginola makes claim about Tottenham Hotspur

David Ginola says Tottenham Hotspur have the best defence in the Premier League.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder David Ginola still keeps a close eye on his old side.

The one time PFA Player of the Year is particularly impressed with Mauricio Pochettino's team, and believes they have best defence in the Premier League this season.

He used Twitter to convey his opinion on Sunday afternoon, as Tottenham took on Everton, a game which ended as a 1-1 draw.

Tottenham have looked a far better side this season now they have found a natural partner for Jan Vertonghen, international teammate Toby Alderweireld.

Ginola's claim is statistically correct too - Tottenham have conceded fewer goals than any Premier League side, although Crystal Palace have one more clean sheet this season.

  Goals ConcededClean Sheet
Stoke 21 8
C. Palace 19 6
Arsenal 18 9
Man Utd 17 10
Tottenham 16 7

The tough job for Tottenham will be maintaining this, but they have a settled defence and one of the league's best goalkeepers behind them in Hugo Lloris.

Spurs are fourth in the Premier League table, and considered by some as outsiders for the title, and it is their solid foundation which gives them a chance, and at the very least makes them a strong contender to qualify for the Champions League.
