Tottenham Hotspur added further weight to their Premier League title challenge on Wednesday night as they comfortably dispatched Everton at White Hart Lane, but manager Harry Redknapp is refusing to over-hype their title winning credentials.

Goals from Aaron Lennon, on his first league start for three weeks, and Benoit Assou-Ekotto secured a vital three-points for Spurs, who now draw level on points with second-placed Manchester United, three points behind leaders Manchester City.

The win was Tottenham's 14th league success of the season, confirming their best ever start to a domestic campaign since their last league title winning season in 1960/61.

"It's not impossible for us to win the league," Redknapp said.

"We have a chance. The players believe we have a good chance. I wasn't there but someone said William Gallas came in the other day and said to everyone: 'Listen, we have a chance here'. It's not beyond the realms of possibility. We are in there.

"It's going to be hard but we are not a bad side. We have some real quality. We can play and we have a good spirit."

"The first goal was all-important because Everton are always difficult to beat and dangerous on the break as well," added Redknapp.

"They have good players so we needed that goal and once we scored, we dominated the game. After that we had plenty of possession and we played some fantastic football at times."

"It was a great win, you never get an easy game against Everton.

"The passing, the crispness of the passing and the movement off the ball was fantastic. I enjoy watching it and I'm sure the spectators must enjoy watching us play."
