Tottenham Hotspur are looking to win their first top flight title since 1961.
Spurs finished 28 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City last term, but Mauricio Pochettino has really bolstered his squad this summer, and many are tipping the north London outfit to push Pep Guardiola's men all the way this time around.
Tottenham haven't won the league since 1961, and Pochettino will be desperate to be the man who helps his side end that ridiculously long wait.
Spurs proved last season that they can mix it with the very best, and if they can find more consistency this term, they have every chance of usurping City and Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title.
Van der Vaart doesn't think Tottenham have enough this season, however, telling Sky Sports:
"It's going to be so tough. They are not strong enough to play through the whole season. Man City and Liverpool are too strong."
And some Spurs fans took to Twitter in reaction to the Dutchman's remarks...
It's hard to disagree with that. Had we managed to pull off the transfer of the century for Dybala, added a quality RB and keep Eriksen then I would be more confident.— Carlos Kickaball (@CKickaball) August 12, 2019
y does everyone gas liverpool up, they'll be found out this season— Tommy (@Tommy84321672) August 12, 2019
Interesting counter to that: if Liverpool had the same selection problems as us last year would they have achieved what we did? Our 4 best attacking players (HK, HMS, CE, DA) played in the same team 13 times out of 58— Orrinoco flow (@Orinnoco_Flow) August 12, 2019
He’s right— Dan (@Daniely79) August 12, 2019
Bang on Rafa .... Battle for Top4 again !— Cos1882 (@CNK82) August 12, 2019
IF we brought in two top level fullbacks then maybe we could get closer
He's right. We've added three good players, but in my opinion it's not good enough. I hope I'm wrong though— Tommy94 (@94tshelby) August 12, 2019
Probably right— na (@wiiiiiiiiinter) August 12, 2019

Van der vaart is spot on. We should have signed more players this summer— Stephen George Lott (@stephenlott) August 13, 2019
Have something to tell us about this article?
