Kevin Campbell has claimed the combination of Jose Mourinho transforming Tottenham and Gareth Bale’s sensational return are “every Arsenal fan’s worst nightmare”.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gunners striker and lifelong supporter is worried about the improvements at Spurs.
Mourinho’s side are third in the Premier League after seven matches on the back of an avalanche of goals inspired by Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.
With Bale back at the club where he developed into a global star, Campbell is concerned about the “embarrassment of riches” available to proven trophy winner Mourinho.
“This is every Arsenal fan’s worst nightmare,” Campbell told Football Insider.
“Mourinho making a difference at Spurs and Spurs getting Bale in, strengthening that squad and looking really strong.
“Can they win the league? Yes, there will be a difference with Mourinho at the helm. Will they? They better not! It’s one of those, we know the attacking prowess they’ve got, we know Harry Kane, Son, Bale now.
“They’ve got an embarrassment of riches but to win a title you have to had tread that path, most of the time, Leicester were an anomaly and an anomaly happens once in a blue moon.
“You have to have been successful, as far as I’m concerned, to go that whole way. Spurs haven’t done it, they’ve got no history of doing it.
“Can they beat anybody? Yes they can, they can beat anybody. Do they have that longevity and consistency to do it week to week? I’m not convinced yet, I need to see them against some of the bigger teams.
“Obviously the West Ham 3-3 would have knocked their confidence but they came back with a win so fair play to them.”
“We’re going to see over the next few weeks how Spurs are because then they’ve got some big games coming up.
“If they can come through some of them being up there [in the table], then you think, ‘okay, now you’ve got to keep an eye on them’.”
