Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that Tottenham has a good chance to win the Premier League this season.
Tottenham is at the top of the table with 26 points after 11 games, despite losing Harry Kane to Bayern Munich last summer. They are two points clear of Arsenal.
In an interview with Bein Sports, Arsene Wenger said Tottenham will be a contender for the trophy until the end of the season.
Wenger said: “If I said after 10 games [they’d be] top of the league… You ask me, not a tricky question because I like always to say what I feel deeply, and I believe Tottenham will be one of the contenders for the league. They bought Maddison, who is a great player and who is that link from low midfield to high midfield, and added some technical creativity to the team. “They bought Van de Ven who I find exceptional. I find him absolutely exceptional.
“They had weaknesses there [at the back] and last year [Hugo] Lloris didn’t have the best of seasons as well. And overall, the movement from Son into the middle looks very good.”
Wenger believes Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Tottenham will fight for the Premier League trophy this season.
Wenger added: “For the Premier League. I would say Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and City of course will always come back. They look like the four who will fight at the moment for the Premier League.”
