Jim White thinks Spurs winning the league would be bigger than Leicester's 15/16 victory

Tottenham appear to be back on track after a dismal few weeks which saw them eliminated from both domestic cup competitions.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were also beaten 1-0 at home by Manchester United, with Harry Kane picking up yet another ankle injury at the end of that game.

Dele Alli then picked up a serious hamstring injury in the 2-1 win away at Fulham, leaving Spurs desperately short in attack.

But they have rallied in their last two games, with the returning Heung-Min Son earning them two priceless victories against Watford and Newcastle.

Spurs are now seven points clear of Chelsea and look all but certain to secure Champions League football.

There's even a school of thought that they could make an outside shot at claiming their first ever Premier League title.

However, the strength of both Manchester City and Liverpool, combined with Spurs' injury woes, would make that scenario extremely difficult.

If Pochettino could pull it off, it would be one of the Premier League's greatest ever achievements, but Jim White may have taken his thoughts on the situation a little too far.

Speaking on talkSPORT, White claimed that if Spurs were to upset the odds and win the league in 2018/19, it would be a bigger achievement than Leicester's triumph in 2015/16.



White said: "They are serious title contenders. If Spurs were to do it, it would go down as a bigger achievement than Leicester.

"I think the competition is much more fierce than it was for Leicester."

While Spurs winning the title would be very impressive, it pales in comparison to the miracle performed by the Foxes and Claudio Ranieri.


Leicester were 5000/1 to win the title before a ball was kicked in 2015, while Tottenham were 16/1 back in the summer.

As such, football fans are not best pleased with White's rather ludicrous comments.
