Andros Townsend backs Tottenham to win Premier League

England and Tottenham starlet Andros Townsend has backed the North London side to win the Barclays Premier League.

Andros Townsend has stated his belief that Tottenham can "definitely" win the Premier League.

Townsend, 22, has stolen the limelight at White Hart Lane this season, making himself a mainstay in the Tottenham set-up as well as forcing a first England start from manager Roy Hodgson.

Speaking to The Metro, Townsend stated his belief that Tottenham can win the Premier League: "I definitely think we can win the title. It’s a big target for us."

The winger, who spent last season on loan with Queens Park Rangers, has enjoyed an emphatic start to the season, scoring twice and making nine league appearances for the Lilywhites.

Spurs have come under criticism for their lack of potency in front of goal, but Townsend reiterated a belief that Tottenham have a squad capable of disrupting the regularity of the top three.

“There’s a great atmosphere in the squad and that’s given us confidence. We know it will be difficult and there are lots of sides up there, but I think we’ve got the strength and depth to match them,” Townsend commented.

"We’ve had a good start to the season and the boys are feeling good."
