King: Spurs can challenge for title

Published Add your comment

Ledley King believes that if Tottenham can keep up their current form, the side can challenge Manchester City and Manchester United in the race for the Barclays Premier League title.

After a disappointing finish at the end of last season, with Spurs failing to qualify for back-to-back Champions League births, Harry Redknapp signed big-name players Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker, and kept Luka Modric to show their intent to stay amongst the elite in England.

And now, Spurs have won seven of their last eight matches, and have convincingly pushed aside Arsenal and Liverpool as they aim to qualify for the Champions League once more.

After Tottenham continued their brilliant form with a win over Fulham, and moved to within four points of Manchester United with a game in hand, King is aiming even higher than a top four finish; the skipper wants to win it all.

“I hope we can be the biggest challengers to the Manchester teams,” he said.

"We feel we can win every game and that showed against Fulham, although we didn't play well. But there was still the feeling we could get the result and that's something new.

"Maybe the old Spurs side have played good football but when it gets tough we were not there to stick it out. We are better away from home now and able to grind out results."

Tottenham’s achievements so far this season are made even better by the fact that they’ve been juggling a tough Europa League schedule with their Barclays Premier League matches.

The side face Aston Villa at home next Monday after the international break, and then take on West Brom at the Hawthorns the following Saturday.
