Danny Mills delivers verdict on Tottenham title chances
By Harvey Byrne
Sky Sports pundit Danny Mills believes Tottenham still “have a chance” of winning the Premier League title, if they keep their side fit.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team ran out emphatic 4-0 winners over Tony Pulis’ West Brom side on Saturday in a dominant display, which could have been far more if not for the goalkeeping heroics from Ben Foster.
The victory elevated Spurs up to second place and seven points behind league leaders Chelsea.
Tottenham did suffer an injury to star defender Jan Vertonghen during the match, but former Premier League full-back Mills believes there aren’t any weaknesses in the team that started at White Hart Lane.
Additionally, he feels if Spurs are able to keep their team fit then they are still in contention of winning their first league title.

“That Tottenham team that started (against West Brom), I don’t see a weakness in that side,” started Mills speaking on Sky Sports News’ Premier League Daily show on Monday morning.
“They are exceptional. A big loss maybe in Vertonghen, however long he’s going to be out for, but that starting eleven there is no weakness in that side.
“There is no opportunity to say that’s where we can get at them, so if they can keep that team fit they have a chance.”
Tottenham were considered Leicester’s closest rivals for the league title going into the final stages of the last campaign.
However, an end of season collapse saw them drop down to third place with fierce rivals Arsenal even able to overtake on the final day of the season.
They will now be looking to improve on the last campaign and they have placed themselves in a good position to do so.
Tottenham have won their last seven encounters in all competitions and they will be keen to keep their run going with Manchester City coming up next.
