Dejan Kulusevski responds when asked if Tottenham can win the Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur star Dejan Kulusevski was asked if his side can win the Premier League title this season ahead of league leaders Arsenal and defending champions Manchester City.

Spurs are currently third in the league table, three points behind Pep Guardiola’s side and eight behind the Gunners – who’ve both played a game less than Antonio Conte’s men.

Dejan Kulusevski responds when asked if Tottenham can win the Premier League

Antonio Conte is a proven winner, there’s no doubt about that.

The Italian is arguably the best manager Spurs have had in over a decade, and he’d love nothing more than to win the Premier League title before he leaves North London.

Could he achieve that this season? Kulusevski says he doesn’t want to put any pressure on his side by publicly claiming that Tottenham can win the Premier League title.

Asked if Spurs can become the champions in the second half of the season, the Swede told Sky Sports: “I don’t want to put any pressure on the team.

“I know we are a good team, I think we can do better than we did in the last six months. So we’re going to go hard and we’re going to give it all.

“You cannot ask more than that, you give your best, you do what your coach says, and then we’ll see where we’ll end up.”

TBR View:

Spurs definitely have a fantastic squad, and with Conte at the helm, anything is possible.

However, Spurs will need a lot of help in the January transfer window if they are to go on a title charge in the second half of the season.

Harry Kane will have to put the heartbreak of the World Cup behind him, while Son Heung-min will need to start delivering as he used to before the start of this campaign.

It’s extremely difficult for Spurs to win the league this season, but football is a funny game and stranger things have happened in the past.
