Tottenham Hotspur CAN win the Premier League this season, former player Ryan Mason tells talkSPORT
Mason said on The Final Word all the talk about it being a two-horse race between Liverpool and Manchester City for the title will work in Spurs’ favour
Tottenham should be considered contenders to win the Premier League this season, former player Ryan Mason has told talkSPORT.
Many have suggested it’s between Manchester City and leaders Liverpool to win the 2018/19 crown, however, Mason believes Spurs – who are currently six points off the Reds – are capable of mounting a challenge too.
The north London club have made their best ever start to a Premier League season this campaign, registering impressive results including a 3-1 dismantling of Chelsea in November.
And Mason, who was forced to retire from football in February 2018 a year after sustaining a fractured skull during a match, cited how the hype surrounding Liverpool and City could work in favour of Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Mason said on The Final Word: “I’ve said it all season and I really believe it.
“They’ve got a manager that’s been there for his fifth season now. They’ve got a squad of players who know each other inside out.
“They’ve challenged a couple of times but failed unfortunately.
“For me, it’s probably suiting them that all the talk is about Liverpool and Manchester City because quietly they’re going about their business, they’re winning games and they’re within touching distance.
“When we come out of this Christmas period in January we’ll probably have an idea of who the top two are or someone may have run away with it.
“The next six or seven games are crucial to see how the season will pan out.”
