Arsenal legend Ian Wright refuses to write off Tottenham Hotspur as title contenders

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has refused to write off Tottenham Hotspur from the title race this season. He believes the north London club could be involved in the race till the end of the campaign.

Speaking to Premier League productions (h/t Football. London), the former Gooner gave his opinion on the title race for this season.

“It feels like they are creeping up. Nobody is speaking about them too much. Everybody is talking about they aren’t this or that. You have an elite manager that have elite players. If that happens, where he adds a couple of players until after the World Cup and they are still in touch, then you have to start looking at Spurs because they aren’t playing unbelievable right now, but they are in touch.”

Tottenham have gotten off to a very good start this season. Antonio Conte’s side have only lost one game in the league so far and sit joint second on points with Manchester City. The defending champions are ahead of us on goal difference.

Spurs cannot be ruled out of the race, at least for now. Next month the league will go into a month-long break due to the World Cup and this could be a very big deciding factor as to who will end up champions in May next year.

With the Gooners playing Europa League this mid-week, Spurs have the chance to move within one point of their north London rivals with an extra match played as they travel to face Manchester United later tonight.

More Tottenham News:

Conte is no stranger to winning the Premier League. The Italian won the English top-flight trophy during his time at Chelsea. Spurs last won the league in the 1960-61 season and never won the Premier League since its inception. Perhaps this season the wait will end for the club and its fans.
