Don't bet against Spurs - Hodgson

Published Add your comment

West Brom manager Roy Hodgson hailed Tottenham as serious Barclays Premier League title contenders after watching the Londoners close the gap on second-placed Manchester United with a 1-0 win over the Baggies at White Hart Lane.

Spurs moved within three points of United after Jermain Defoe's 63rd-minute strike on Tuesday evening, and their chances of breaking into the top two will be boosted if the Red Devils fail to overcome Newcastle on Wednesday night as Harry Redknapp's men have a game in hand.

"They are serious contenders. They have proven that already," Hodgson said. "There is no question about that. They win their matches. They keep putting pressure on Manchester City and Manchester United to win their matches and they are getting some distance between themselves and the chasing pack so they have to be very happy with their first 19 games."
