Jurgen Klinsmann stated before Tottenham beat Arsenal on Sunday afternoon that they still have the chance to win the Premier League title.
The former World Cup winner was a guest of the club as they beat their north London rivals 2-0 at White Hart Lane.
It was the final match to be played at Spurs’ old home as Dele Alli and Harry Kane got on the scoresheet in the second half to help their team claim all three points.
Prior to the match, Klinsmann felt that “these are the moments you are living for” when talking about his former side chasing the title in big matches.

“They still have the chance to win the title,” Klinsmann told Sky Sports. “These are the moments you are living for. These are the moments where you want to make sure that people recognise you are maturing.
“I think you have a team now that is maturing year bit more – they can still win this whole thing.”
Going by Klinsmann’s comments Mauricio Pochettino’s team did produce a “mature” display as they put the nightmares of last season behind them.
During the previous campaign, when Spurs were chasing eventual winners Leicester City for the title, they collapsed during their final few matches with their young squad coming under huge pressure.
However, this season they are proving that they have learned from that experience as they are set to take the title race to the wire.
Spurs will travel to the London Stadium on Friday evening to take on West Ham where they will be hoping to close the lead at the top of the table to one point.
