Tottenham Hotspur currently leads the Premier League standings, maintaining an unbeaten record this season.
The question arises: Should we view them as potential title winners?
In a recent exclusive column for the Daily Briefing, respected football journalist Fabrizio Romano weighed in on this.
While acknowledging that Ange Postecoglou is performing impressively as Spurs’ manager, Romano opined that it might be challenging for Tottenham to sustain their title contention throughout the season.
Despite the setback of Harry Kane’s transfer to Bayern Munich during the summer, Tottenham has not shown any signs of slowing down.
The arrival of James Maddison in the summer has provided the team with a much-needed boost, supplemented by remarkable performances from players like Son Heung-min and Yves Bissouma.
Romano expressed admiration for Tottenham’s efforts but highlighted the challenge the young squad might face, especially when up against formidable teams like Arsenal and Manchester City.
He mentioned, “Both Tottenham and Arsenal are neck-and-neck in terms of points and goal difference. While Tottenham’s performance is commendable, given the youthful nature of the squad, sustaining this momentum will be challenging.”
He further emphasized Postecoglou’s excellence as a manager and stated, “Everyone at Spurs recognizes his brilliance.
However, it’s important to note that this season is just the onset of a new era for Tottenham. While the club remains grounded in its ambitions, only time will tell where they stand.”
In summary, while Tottenham’s start to the season is promising, the journey to the title might be a testing one, considering the challenges ahead and the evolving dynamics of the Premier League.
