David Ginola insists that Tottenham have a genuine chance of winning the Premier League title, because their midfield is the best in the league, talkSPORT
Spurs saw off Everton 2-0 on Wednesday night and went level in the table with second placed Manchester United in the process. Harry Redknapp’s men only sit three points behind league leaders Manchester City and are in a prime position to challenge for the league title. Aaron Lennon opened the scoring for Tottenham and has been a key component in a Spurs midfield of Lennon, Scott Parker, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale. Cameos from young players like Jake Livermore, as well as Niko Kranjcar and Steven Pienaar, mean that Spurs have a magnificent midfield this season.
Former Spurs player Ginola believes that quality in the midfield is vital and has allowed Spurs to be in with a realistic chance of becoming champions. Spurs face Wolves this weekend and could move into second outright if Manchester United slip up at home to Bolton.
Ginola said: ‘Tottenham’s midfield is probably the best in the country. When you have Scott Parker, Aaron Lennon, Rafael van der Vaart and Gareth Bale, you’ve got pace and skill. You’ve got everything. I don’t know yet (whether they can win the league). They’re eight points ahead of Chelsea though and everything is possible. If they carry on playing this way, then we will see, but why not?’
