Van der Vaart: We can win the title

Next Story

Rafael van der Vaart claims Tottenham must now be taken seriously as Barclays Premier League title contenders - and they will show leaders Manchester City just why at the Etihad Stadium the weekend after next.

Spurs are now level on points with Manchester United and just three behind leaders City after another convincing performance as Everton were beaten 2-0 at White Hart Lane. Spurs could wipe out City's lead if they beat Wolves on Saturday ahead of the Blues' trip to Wigan on Monday night, and Dutchman Van der Vaart sees no reason why they cannot last the distance.

"Everybody knows Spurs have a great team and if we can keep playing like this, then we're also favourites to win the title," Van der Vaart told the London Evening Standard.
