Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp believes his old club have ‘every chance’ of challenging for the Premier League title this season.

In an interview with talkSPORT, the ex-West Ham and Bournemouth boss argued that Jose Mourinho has a squad capable of lifting the trophy.

Harry Redknapp sees Spurs’ strengths

The club’s closest attempt at securing the Premier League title came in the 2016/17 campaign, where they finished second to Antonio Conte’s Chelsea.

But Harry Redknapp believes the club are now in a position to challenge the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool for glory.

“I look at that squad and it’s a very strong squad,” said Redknapp. “He’s [Mourinho] got internationals covering every position.

“It’s a squad that I believe is very capable of challenging for the title. I still would make Liverpool and Man City favourites, but I think Tottenham have got every chance.

“It’s wide open this year. It’s so tight.”

Flying start in front of goal

Spurs sit fifth in the current Premier League standings on 11 points, two off joint-leaders Everton and Liverpool

Mourinho’s men have won three, drawn two and lost one of their six league matches so far, but lead the way in terms of goals scored.

They have found the net 16 times, one more than champions Liverpool and twice as many as last season’s top scorers Man City.

Forward pairing key

The attacking duo of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son have been crucial to such a stunning start in front of goal, with the latter now on eight for the campaign.

The South Korean has scored the same amount of goals as both Arsenal and Manchester City have managed so far, with his fellow forward Kane also in fine form in the final third.

The England international boasts five league goals from six games, with his eight assists well ahead of any other player in the division.
