Spurs defender William Gallas feels Harry Redknapp’s side are looking like champions.

 

The former France international tasted league success twice while at Chelsea, and says he can sense a similar feeling at White Hart Lane.

 

Spurs have won nine or their last ten league fixtures and have put in a number of stylish performances during the run.

 

"We have the look of the champion," Gallas told The Times. "I have won trophies and I know what it feels like to win and it is quite possible to do something here too.”

 

"Against West Brom and Fulham we have not played as well. It was the same when I was at Chelsea when sometimes we did not deserve to win a game, but with luck we won 1-0 or maybe 2-1, and it is a little bit like that with Tottenham.”

 

Gallas knows it will not be an easy task and insisted belief is an important factor in being able to lift the league trophy at the end of the season.

 

The former Arsenal man has warned that his old side will make things tough now they have rediscovered winning ways, as well as a number of other clubs.

 

"You play for success, you play to lift yourselves, so now we have to believe in ourselves, work hard to try and catch City,” he added.

 

"It is very wonderful to see how we play and we can win every game.

 

"But we should not forget that City are on top and Arsenal are back. It is very important to show again what we can do this season."

 

Gallas, who signed for Spurs on a free transfer after not renewing his contract at Arsenal, has not been playing regularly this season due to Harry Redknapp preferring the Ledley King and Younes Kaboul partnership.

 

The 34-year-old has accepted he may not be playing as regularly at this stage in his career, but refuses to stop working hard to give Redknapp a selection headache.

 

“It is not a bad team, we have some strong players who, like me, want to play every game," he added.

 

"Sometimes you can be frustrated but you come to accept it. Sometimes it is not easy. What is more important is the club is winning.

 

"You know I am a competitor and, if I was not, I would just sit on the bench and get my money. In the past I showed that I do not play for money, I play because you know the football was my dream when I was young."

 

Gallas concluded: "I have maybe two or three years to play and so I don't want to regret anything when I finish."
