Do these stats prove Spurs are title favourites?
Tottenham are having another wonderful season.
This time last year, very few would have anticipated the campaign they embarked on. They pushed Leicester City close for the Premier League title but ultimately fell short in their pursuit.
Somehow, they managed to sour one of their best seasons in the Premier League by surrendering second place to arch rivals Arsenal on the last day of the season, courtesy of a 5-1 drubbing at the hands of already relegated Newcastle.
People have underestimated Spurs again this season, suggesting the big clubs would come back bigger and stronger, and whilst they have, it hasn’t disturbed Spurs’ momentum.
While the champions Leicester are still adjusting to being champions, Spurs have continued their upward rise and are still unbeaten after eight Premier League matches.
They cut it close last weekend against Tony Pulis’ West Brom as they required an 89th minute Dele Alli equaliser to save the day and rescue a point.
Nevertheless, they sit one point off Manchester City and Arsenal, who lead the way in the Premier League with 19 points.
These stats give even more proof to the notion that Spurs are not to be under-estimated anymore. They are genuine title contenders, if not favourites.
