Nacer Chadli's one-word response when asked if Tottenham would take second place now

Tottenham Hotspur are currently in second place in the Premier League table.

Nacer Chadli has told Sky Sports Soccer Saturday that Tottenham Hotspur would no longer be satisfied with second place.

Spurs are currently placed two points behind Leicester City at the top of the table, and they have performed above all expectations so far this campaign.

However, after coming so far, Chadli now insists that if he is not lifting the title in May then he will be disappointed.

“No,” Chadli simply responded, when asked whether he would take second place if it was offered to him now.

Tottenham were considered outsiders to claim a top four space at the start of the campaign, but they have put together a very strong season to date.

Spurs have lost just three of their first 26 Premier League matches, and they beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in their most recent outing.

The Lilywhites are now four points clear of Manuel Pellegrini’s side, while they sit above Arsenal on goal-difference.

Spurs’ next league match comes against Swansea City in two weekends’ time, and if they are able to win then they could leapfrog Leicester to move to the top of the pile.
