Younes Kaboul is confident that Tottenham have the talent in their squad to be the capital's number one club this season.

After a disappointing start to the 2011-12 campaign with back-to-back defeats against Manchester United and Manchester City, Spurs are now looking to secure their third consecutive victory when they travel to Wigan this weekend.

Having strengthened their squad with the loan signing of Emmanuel Adebayor, and the deadline day arrival of Scott Parker - Harry Redknapp has assembled a team that Kaboul feels is capable of having another successful year, providing they realise their potential.

"The only danger for us is ourselves, no one else," he told the London Evening Standard. "If we keep doing well on the pitch, then we are a match for any team.


 

"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. Can we finish as the top club in London? Yes, we can."

Kaboul cites the change in coaching set-up and culture at White Hart Lane as the main reason why Spurs can be successful this year, comparing his current north London experience with the club's approach under previous managers.

"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," he continued. "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. I am very happy here and I hope that everything is going to keep moving the right way."
