Tanguy Ndombele has told Sky Sports that Tottenham Hotspur are capable of winning the Premier League title this season, but has stated that the club’s objectives are to finish in the Champions League places.
Spurs have made an excellent start to the Premier League campaign, while beating Chelsea on penalties to enter the last eight of the Carabao Cup – and have won all five of their Europa League games so far.
Had Spurs held on to wins over Newcastle and West Ham, the north Londoners would be two points clear of current league leaders Everton. Instead, they sit in a healthy fifth position – two points behind Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Harry Redknapp told Sky Sports News on deadline day that Tottenham can win the Premier League title, and Ndombele believes it is possible – however, the Frenchman is keeping his feet on the ground after just six games.
“Our objective has always been to get into the top four,” Ndombele said. “More than that? Why not? But nobody wins the league in six matches. Even if we were top of the league, there would still be 32 matches to play.”
TBR’s view – Tottenham have the depth, and quality
Certainly, under a serial winner such as Jose Mourinho, Spurs have never been better-placed to mount a Premier League title challenge. They have internationals all over the park, two in every position.
The return of Gareth Bale has sparked a revival, and Daniel Levy has been praised. Issues at right-back, centre-back, left-back, central midfield and back up to Harry Kane have all been solved. So, as Ndombele says, why not?
