Ex-Tottenham forward Teddy Sheringham believes his former club are in the best position they have been since Terry Venables was in charge.

Venables, who is a previous England manager, took charge of Spurs between 1987-1993.

He endured a mixed time at White Hart Lane and his highlight came when he guided the side to victory in the FA Cup in 1991.

Sheringham believes the current Spurs crop under Mauricio Pochettino are a great team and feels they can be the best in London, despite rivals Chelsea top of the Premier League.

“This has to be the most exciting time at Spurs since Terry Venables,” Sheringham told the Sun. “The way the club is going, it could be the biggest in London.”

Spurs face huge competition to be the best in London and neighbours Chelsea appear to be the best in the capital right now.

Antonio Conte’s Blues are 10 points clear at the top of the league and are storming to the league title, but Spurs are their nearest challengers in second.

Pochettino’s side currently have the edge over north London rivals Arsenal, who are sat fifth-place in the league table.

The three elite London-based clubs are all still in the FA Cup and will compete in the quarter-finals this weekend.

Spurs will be looking to negotiate past League One opposition Millwall and Pochettino will be desperate to win some silverware.
