Ledley King holds a belief that Tottenham are capable of winning their first Premier League title this season.
Tottenham currently sit joint second in the table, just two points off leaders Arsenal and have impressed, conceding just twice in their opening six games.
They have also had an assured start to their Europa League campaign, compounded by a confident 2-0 win away to Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala last night.
Spurs face London rivals West Ham on Saturday and will be bidding to catch Arsenal, who face a tricky tie away to West Brom.
Former captain King - an ambassador for Spurs - says he has been so impressed by early performances from Tottenham that he believes a title tilt is a real possibility this season.
He told the Evening Standard: “It [the title] is something I have thought about.
“There is still a long way to go, but if the team can keep performing as they are until Christmas, they can re-evaluate the situation and take it from there.
“They look like one of the strongest teams and, along with Arsenal, they have been one of the most consistent. The race looks open, more than it has done in previous years.
“In recent years, you always expected Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea to be at the top of the table from the off, but they have all struggled a little bit. At this stage, you wouldn’t know who to put your money on.”
The win against Anzhi saw eight changes from the team that drew 1-1 with Chelsea last week but many of those changes are expected to be rectified when West Ham visit White Hart Lane.
