Jamie Carragher delivers verdict on Tottenham title chances
By Harvey Byrne
Jamie Carragher believes that Tottenham “will be in the thick of the fight” for the Premier League title this season.
Spurs currently sit in fifth place in the top flight table and are the only unbeaten side after 10 fixtures.
Carragher has touched on their impressive record and believes that the current mood around Tottenham, which isn’t good at the moment will completely change if they maintain their record against fierce rivals Arsenal on Sunday.
“Would it be the end of the world if Spurs failed to advance? Again, the answer is no,” wrote Carragher in his column for the Daily Mail.
“The aim for Tottenham is to be Champions League regulars but, with them only being three points off the top, why can’t they push for the title?

“They will be in the thick of the fight and remember, they are the Premier League’s only unbeaten team.
“Should that still be true after they have faced Arsenal, the mood around Tottenham will change completely.”
Spurs will be keen to push on from last season’s third place finish, which saw them in contention for the title with Leicester right up until an end of season collapse.
They are currently going through a similar spell of poor form, which has seen them go six matches without a victory in all competitions.
However, form will fly out of the window for their match against fierce rivals Arsenal and they will also be boosted by the returns of Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane from long-term injuries.
