Spurs depth impresses Anderton

Former Tottenham favourite Darren Anderton believes Spurs have a squad - and manager - capable of winning the Barclays Premier League.

Spurs began the season in dreadful fashion - losing 3-0 to Manchester United then 5-1 to Manchester City - but have really hit their straps since then.

Harry Redknapp's side now find themselves level on points with United, and only three ponts adrift of leaders City - something which hardly seemed possible in August.

Despite Redknapp attempting to cool talk of league crown, there is real excitement that this could be the year that Spurs win the title for the first time since 1961.

And, says Anderton - who spent 12 years at White Hart Lane - Spurs have the strength in depth to ensure they will still be in the running come May.

"After the Man City game I was worried because it looked like it was going to be a tough season for Spurs," Anderton told Sky Sports News.

"Harry responded, went out and got Scotty Parker, (Emmanuel) Adebayor and kept Luka Modric; three key players. And since then they've gone from strength to strength.

"They are always good going forward but defensively they've been great. Usually when Ledley King has been out they have struggled but (Younes) Kaboul has come in and been outstanding.

"Parker has been a huge player for them; defensively he has been able to help out and he lets those flair players, the players that can win games for them, go and play."

He added: "(Spurs) have definitely got a manager good enough to produce a team that can win the title and the players are most certainly good enough."
