Following their ever so convincing 4-1 win against struggling Sunderland, football spectators worldwide are still left baffled by the ever growing quality of Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs believed that the 2015/16 campaign would be one of redevelopment, and prioritised a top four finish as their ultimate goal.
The side currently do sit in fourth, miles clear of closest competitors and arch rivals West Ham, only losing three matches in the process. But, the question on many Premier League fanatics' minds remains: Can Tottenham Hotspur clinch the Premier League trophy and bring it home to White Hart Lane come May?
Starting from their foundation at the back, The Whites' defence is as good as any other title challengers'. The centre half duo in Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld has been especially key in Spurs' success, with the Belgian partnership keeping clean sheets and breaking down world class strikers with ease.
English wing backs Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier have both been very impressive of late, following their slow starts to the season.
The heart of Tottenham's back line comes in the form of club captain, Hugo Lloris. The French international has had a magnificent season thus far in orchestrating Tottenham's defensive success while making 74 saves in the process.
The Spurs midfield has been even more impressive. New signing Deli Alli has been the star of the Tottenham show this season, with the 19-year-old adjusting to the Premier League tempo as quick as any other superstar, even breaking into the English National Team set up. Former MK Dons starlet is expected to travel to France in the summer, and act as a key player in the upcoming European Championships.
His Danish counterpart, Christian Eriksen, has also performed at an elite level so far. Although the central midfielder was struck by injury in the early parts of the season, he has regained his form massively, scoring four and assisting six in his 17 appearances for the club.
Academy graduate and fan favourite Harry Kane has been the star of the show so far. Much like other Spurs players, Kane started the season very sluggishly. The English International scored his first Premier League goal of the season eight matches of the season, but has since improved massively. The Former Millwall loanee has scored 11 goals since this drought, even netting a hat trick against Premier League newcomers AFC Bournemouth.
To put it simply; yes, Tottenham Hotspur have as much of a chance to win the Premier League as any other club battling for it. However if the campaign does go horribly wrong in the coming months, the impressive potential capabilities of Tottenham's young Englishmen will surely blossom in the coming seasons, and a first division title will arrive at White Hart Lane in due time.
