Mousa Dembele says Tottenham can still win the league

Mousa Dembele is refusing to give up hope on Tottenham winning the title despite their disappointment against West Brom.

Leicester have one hand on the title thanks to the slip-up, though realistically, Spurs were already up against it.

Claudio Ranieri's side are three points away from mathematically confirming their unbelievable feat, and though they have three games to do it in, Dembele insists Spurs should not give up.

The Belgian midfielder told Sky Sports: "We have to believe in it still."

Dembele optimistic 

He joins Harry Kane in suggesting that Spurs should not give up just yet, though the England forward also suggested it would be hugely unlikely for them to win the title now.

Dembele admitted that their situation is not ideal, as they are entirely reliant on Leicester dropping points in all of their remaining games.

"It's not going to be easy and we're in a different scenario now than we were (before the West Brom draw) to be honest."

"Last week was very disappointing and in the end we need to win the three games we have left. We don't have it in our own hands so it's a bit different."

Spurs are still to play Chelsea, Southampton, and Newcastle, and now that Leicester are so close, Mauricio Pochettino's side are perhaps better off looking at maintaining second place, an achievement which would still indicate huge progress this season.

Bright future ahead

Dembele has epitomised that progress, turning from a run-of-the-mill squad player into Tottenham's midfield talisman.

He is one of several Lilywhites to have improved dramatically from last season, and if they continue that trend, the 28-year-old thinks they can
go onto great things, despite their disappointment this year.

"Next year, the top teams will be stronger but I think we will be stronger as well. You can see the vibe, there's a positive future for us", he said.
