Alan Shearer says that Tottenham Hotspur can win the Premier League title this season if they keep Harry Kane fit.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has written on Coral.co.uk that Tottenham Hotspur can win the Premier League title this season.

However, there is a one key condition.

“Tottenham have become very difficult to beat, they’ve got the best defensive record, and have a very good spine,” the former Newcastle striker has written on Coral.co.uk.

“Can they challenge for the title? In any other season I would have said no, but the way this season has gone for them, I will say yes they can challenge for the title.

"Harry Kane’s fitness is vital. As you know, I’m a huge fan of his and if they keep him fit, then yes they can win.”

Harry Kane is one of the best players at Tottenham and is their main goalscorer.

The England international striker is in good form at the moment, and his fitness and goals will be key to Spurs’ chances of having a successful season.

The 22-year-old has scored 11 goals and created 21 chances in 20 Premier League appearances so far this season.

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 36 points from 20 matches, just six points behind leaders and North London rivals Arsenal.

Leicester City and Manchester City are above Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the league table in second and third respectively, while Manchester United are just three points behind in fifth.

Spurs have been the most consistent team in the league this season and have lost just two games.
