It’s hard not to mention the ‘T’ word this week, particularly after last night’s defeat for Manchester United leaves Spurs with the opportunity to draw level on points with the second place side if they beat Everton next Wednesday.
Many Spurs players have been asked for their comments about a possible title challenge and Jermain Defoe is one who insists that our lofty position is not bringing any added pressure to the players.
“I’m loving the pressure,” JD said. “It’s like playing tournament football for England, when everyone is pinning their hopes on you to make the breakthrough.
“City and United know we are a threat, and with every game that we keep on winning we can put pressure on them to keep winning.
“We don’t feel negative pressure. We are enjoying it. But at the same time we know that it may not come again in the way that it has.
“This is such a good opportunity for us. We want to take it with both hands.”
Younes Kaboul was quick to add that the club are now a ‘massive’ premiership side,
“We are a massive team in England now so we have to assume that and play as well as we can every week.”
Talk of the title doesn’t seem to be affecting the players but do the majority of Spurs fans really believe we can mount a challenge?
