Rio Ferdinand has hailed Tottenham Hotspur, after they beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium earlier today.
Spurs’ win over City was arguably the biggest victory of their season so far, and it has confirmed their status as title contenders.
The Lilywhites are only two points behind top of the table Leicester City, and Ferdinand believes that they may be the team to watch.
Spurs are going to take some stopping now...they looked so composed....that is the element of their performance that impressed me most today— Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) February 14, 2016
Tottenham’s win over City was highly impressive, as they had to show their resolve to claim the three points.
Spurs took the lead when Harry Kane blasted home a penalty, but they were dealt a set-back when Kelechi Iheanacho netted an equaliser.
At that point Tottenham could have crumbled, but they stood firm and were rewarded for their spirit when Erik Lamela set-up Christian Eriksen to score the winner.
Leicester are top, Spurs are second. What a wonderful season this is!— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) February 14, 2016
