Tottenham could well do the unthinkable by winning the Premier League title after almost 50 years. Spurs are second in the league standings behind Leicester but with the kind of players they have, they could actually pip the Foxes if things don’t go right for the league leaders.

Winning the title would certainly make each Spurs player a legend in their own right, after all winning the league after the 1960-61 season would be a miracle but there have been quite a few legends in between.

David Ginola and Jurgen Klinnsman are just a couple who did great in the Premier League era and we list out five more greats who turned up for the white of Tottenham in recent years.

Robbie Keane

Keane had a couple of stints at the club and will always be remembered for his exuberant celebrations. The Irish international had over 300 appearances for the whites in two stints at the club. Keane might be playing in the MLS at the moment but his time at Tottenham was certainly incredible and he always gave his all for the club, no matter what.

Teddy Sheringham

Sheringham’s best moments for the club might have come a few years ago, well many years ago but he was one of the best to have graced the English game. Teddy had two great spells at the club and scored over 120 goals for Spurs in just over 270 games. Sheringham might have moved to Portsmouth later on but the striker was beloved at Spurs and still is seen as a hero at the club.

Ledley King

A player whose England and Tottenham career was plagued with injury, Ledley was a great central defender but just couldn’t stay fit for long enough to have a big impact for Tottenham and for England. Things had gotten so bad for him that he could not play two games in a week and often had to be rested just to keep him fit. King made 321 appearances for Tottenham over 14 seasons but he did get a testimonial for his services.

Jermain Defoe

Another player who had two stints at the club, Defoe is still banging in important goals for Sunderland in their survival fight but for Tottenham he was the main striker for a number of years. Defoe scored 143 goals for Spurs in 363 appearances for the club and still is regarded as one of the best strikers to have played in the Premier League.

Les Ferdinand

Another striker in the list that could be considered as one of the best ever to have played for Spurs is Les Ferdinand. The 49-year-old might be in the coaching team at the moment but during his time, he was one of the best strikers in the Premier League. Ferdinand ‘s career was filled with injuries though he did have a great partnership with Jurgen Klinnsman, there is one bit of trivia though, he did score the Premier League’s 10,000th goal, not bad for someone who supported Spurs when he was a child.
