Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul believes the North London outfit have what it takes to finish as the top club in the capital come the end of the season.

The French international is confident that the strength in depth available to manager Harry Redknapp means they have the capability to finish as London’s number one side for the first time since the 1994/95 season.

Spurs are looking to add their third straight win of the season against Wigan on Saturday after enduring a miserable start to the campaign losing 3-0 and 5-1 to Manchester United and City, respectively. 

However, the additions of both Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker has seen their fortunes changes and victories over Wolves and Liverpool has lifted the spirits around White Hart Lane.

“The only danger for us is ourselves, no one else,” Kaboul told the London Evening Standard.

“If we keep doing well on the pitch, then we are a match for any team. Can we finish as the top club in London? Yes, we can.

“Arsenal have lost many players and it seems like they are having a bad time in the Premier League, although we never know with teams like that when they will wake up. But if we believe in ourselves, keep doing the right things and moving in the right direction, then we can do something very good.

“I have had two spells at Tottenham (under Martin Jol and Juande Ramos) and the comparison between now and the last time is like comparing day and night. It is a really professional club. A lot of changes have been made in a good way, so that is why Spurs today are better than they were before.”

Kaboul has been in good form for Spurs this year, helping provide three of the teams last four clean sheets and he believes the competition is fierce for his returning team-mates, including William Gallas.

“When you get the confidence of the chairman, the manager and everyone, you can only do better and to have that confidence is very important for a player,” added Kaboul.

“I am very happy here and I hope that everything is going to keep moving the right way.

“I am 25 now and I need to confirm what I am. I have to be at my best in every game and that is the only way I can improve more. The only thing that interests me is to be in the starting eleven.

“I have played at right-back before for Spurs because we didn’t have enough players in that position and I need to help the team but my best position is at centre-back.”
