Erik Lamela suggests that Tottenham Hotspur can win the Premier League title this season.

Tottenham Hotspur star Erik Lamela has told The Telegraph that he and his teammates can win the Premier League title this season.

Spurs are just six points behind leaders and North London rivals Arsenal in the standings at the moment.

A top-four finish is Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s main objective, but a title challenge is not impossible.

Lamela, who can play as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, believes that Tottenham can go all the way.

“Everything is possible if you believe and I think this team really believes,” the Argentina international told The Telegraph when asked if Spurs are title contenders. “So if this team wants to, it can.

“We will see at the end of it if it is going to happen but we will give our best. We have only lost two (league) games and we know that if we continue like this then we are equal to any other team.”

Lamela is enjoying a good season and has established himself as one of the best players in the current Tottenham squad.

The 23-year-old has scored three goals and created 35 chances in 18 Premier League appearances so far this season.

The former AS Roma star, who has been on the books of Spurs since the summer of 2013, was linked with a move away from White Hart Lane in the summer of 2015.

According to The London Evening Standard, Italian giants Inter Milan and French club Marseille were interested in Lamela.

The Tottenham star has made it clear that he is keen on staying at the North London outfit.

“Yes, I am very happy here,” Lamela told The Telegraph. “I enjoy the every day life I can get here and I also enjoy being part of Tottenham. I am really, really happy.”

Tottenham will take on Leicester at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.
