Jamie Carragher makes Tottenham Hotspur title chances U-turn

Jamie Carragher believes Tottenham Hotspur can compete for the title next season.

Jamie Carragher has told SkySports Monday Night Football that he has changed his mind on Tottenham Hotspur's chances of future success.

Spurs are second in the Premier League, five points back with four games to go, and have won their last two matches by a combined scoreline of 7-0 over Manchester United and Stoke City.

Seeing their team challenging for the title is a new experience for many Tottenham fans, and while this is a golden opportunity they will want to make the most of, Carragher believes there will be more chances around the corner, despite previously suggesting otherwise.

He said: "The more I watch Spurs, and I think I've said it a lot this season, I think I may be wrong in terms of saying 'this is an unbelievable chance to win a title, this chance may not come again.'

"The more I watch them the more I think this chance might come again.

"I'm expecting Chelsea to be a lot better next season, Manchester United, Liverpool to spend, Arsenal to spend and become better as all those sides have had average seasons in their eyes, but the more I watch this team I think in terms of in years to come, this team can challenge for the title."

Tottenham have the core of a team built to sustain success, if they can keep all their key stars in place.

Only one player over 30 has featured for them this season, back-up goalkeeper Michel Vorm, while young superstars like Harry Kane have extended contracts until 2020.

Asked about head coach Mauricio Pochettino's future, Carragher summed it up perfectly when he succinctly answered, 'Why would he want to leave?"
