Sir Alex Ferguson believes Tottenham are currently playing the best football in the Premier League.

Heading into the New Year programme, Spurs are seven points adrift of pacesetters Manchester City and Manchester United, although they do have a game in hand.

And with both City and United to play within a six-week spell from the end of January to the beginning of March, Ferguson believes the Londoners cannot be written out of the battle just yet, and said: "Tottenham can definitely win it."
