Tottenham can win the Premier League - Caulker

Former Tottenham defender Steven Caulker believes then north London club has what it takes to become Premier League champions this season.

The England defender formed part of a heroic rearguard action for new-club Cardiff against Spurs on Sunday but could do little as Andre Villas-Boas's side scored with their 29th attempt in the 93rd minute to secure a valuable 1-0 win.

Spurs splashed well over £100 million on seven new players over the summer to counter the loss of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, and Caulker believes they now have the personnel to go all the way.

When asked if Tottenham could win the title, the £8 million defender told the Daily Mirror: "Yeah, with the players they have brought in and the squad they have got, they should be achieving things.

"They have spent a lot of money and when teams spend that amount of money you expect big things from them.

"It's slightly different there now. Without Bale they did not have that threat - but they have other players who came in and looked strong. I thought their movement up front was great.

Spurs are currently joint-top of the Premier League along with rivals Arsenal after five games, with their only defeat coming against their north London rivals.

"With the money they have spent they have got great players with a lot of movement," Caulker continued. "They have got Soldado and Eriksen running off and you have got to be focused.

"When you bring on a £27m-plus player in the last minute, like [Erik] Lamela, it is going to be difficult. With the money they have spent they will all cause teams problems."

Tottenham go up against Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup tonight before they continue their Premier League campaign against Chelsea on Saturday.
