Stan Collymore believes that Tottenham could struggle later in the season due to the size of their squad despite a convincing victory over West Brom on Saturday.
Spurs recorded an emphatic 4-0 win over the Baggies at White Hart Lane and moved up to second in the Premier League table.
Harry Kane scored an impressive hat-trick to continue his goalscoring form, while Gareth McAuley netted an unfortunate own goal for the visitors.
The north London club are now regarded as serious contenders for the Premier League title, having won their last seven games across all competitions,
Collymore hailed Spurs’ “super” display against West Brom, but still feels they are lacking strength in their squad.
“Super Tottenham performance today, movement, creativity and free scoring. Hope squad size doesn’t hurt them down the line. Still too slim,” Collymore wrote on his personal Twitter account.
Superb #THFC performance today, movement, creativity and free scoring. Hope squad size doesn't hurt them down the line. Still too slim IMO.

Spurs will be concerned about defender Jan Vertonghen after he was forced off injured against West Brom, but Ben Davies was introduced to replace him.
Pochettino has also used Harry Winks and Heung-Min Son from the bench, while Michel Vorm, Georges-Kevin N’Koudou, Kieran Trippier and Moussa Sissoko were unused substitutes.
Striker Vincent Janssen was left out of the matchday squad and the north London club are lacking attacking options beyond Kane.
Spurs face a huge game against title rivals Manchester City in their next Premier League game and Pochettino will hope to have his strongest XI available to him.
