Ian Wright says that Tottenham must also considered as part of the title race in the 2015-16 season since they may have finally achieved the consistency required to be part of it.
For long periods, the club has struggled with expectations. It has qualified for the top four only once in the Premier League history. For a club that is going to move into a brand-new 60,000 seater stadium, these are not good figures. Mauricio Pochettino was appointed with the task of taking the club into the top four on a regular basis. After struggling in his first season at White Hart Lane, the manager is showing incredible promise so far.
The 3-0 win coupled with Manchester United’s failure to secure a win against Stoke City meant that Tottenham have now gone into the fourth spot. Wright, though, things that the club should not stop their ambitions for this season at this position. He expects them to kick on in the coming weeks. Since the deficit between Tottenham and the top of the table, which is occupied by Leicester City, is fairly low, speculation about a title challenge from the London outfit has not gone away. Tottenham are only four points behind table leaders Leicester.
“Well the way the season is going you’d have to say a few teams have got a very good chance.Spurs are in or around [the top places],” said Wright. One of the big challenges for Tottenham will be to maintain this position even after the New Year’s day. The fixtures are usually very heavy during this period in English football. There may be an opinion that Spurs may struggle to cope up with the physical demand due to the large number of matches and are due to their involvement in the Europa league, which has an extensive number of matches itself.
