Sandro wants Chelsea title statement

Sandro believes Tottenham can be title contenders this season – but only if they show what they are made of against fellow title-hopefuls Chelsea on Thursday.


Spurs currently sit two points clear of Chelsea going into their clash at White Hart Lane this week after claiming a tight 1-0 win over Sunderland, while the Blues stumbled to a 1-1 draw with Wigan.


Tottenham will look to keep within touching distance of both Manchester clubs going into the new year with their game in hand against Everton to come in January, and Sandro believes that victory against Andre Villas-Boas’ men would open up a world of possibility for the Lillywhites.


"It can give us the belief that we can win the title," Sandro said. "If we win this game, the only way will be up for us. We can make a big statement, although it will be a very difficult game.


"But we are playing at home and that is very good because the support is very good and that helps us. Yes, we can win the title. Why not? Every single player in the squad is good, we are a strong team and our bench is strong as well."


The Brazilian international has found himself on the sidelines this season thanks to a combination of injuries and the form of Scott Parker, and has only played three league games while Harry Redknapp’s men strung together an 11 game unbeaten run to move them into the top three.


The lack of game time has led to speculation Sandro could be leaving White Hart Lane during the January transfer window.


But, having started against Sunderland, the former Internacional midfielder will be hoping for another nod from Redknapp against Chelsea, and admitted this season has been “frustrating” for him so far.


"It has been very frustrating but the injuries are in the past now," he added.


"I've worked so hard to be back in this position of being able to play again. My injuries are completely over now and I think I can establish myself in the team."
