Former Tottenham striker Peter Crouch believes that to win the Premier League this season Mourinho’s side has “as good a chance as anyone else”.
It looks like it’s going to be a wide-open title race as it was a crazy start to the 2020/21 campaign, with five points separating the top 14 teams from six games.
With Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son firing in the attack, it’s been one of the best teams so far, and although Crouch believes Liverpool and Manchester City are still the favorites, he thinks his old club is going to be up there.
“It is a crazy league and it feels like anyone can beat anyone at the moment,” Crouch said for SkySports.
“I would say City and Liverpool aren’t as strong as they were and other teams have got stronger. It is definitely something to do with fans not being in the ground, which is causing some strange results and lots of goals.”
“The league is up for grabs. Can Tottenham win it? I’m not sure but I think they’ve got as good a chance as anyone.”
“City and Liverpool have to be the favorites just because they’ve been the strongest team over the last three years.”
This season much of what Tottenham can do will depend on whether Harry Kane can continue to start the season.
The captain of England scored five goals, but more impressively, he created eight goals as his traditional number nine-game evolved.
Crouch is in amazement of the player he’s seen coming through the ranks of the London club.
“There is no limit to what this boy can do,” Crouch added. “I played with him when he was a young kid at Tottenham and I was in the first team and he has always scored goals and he has always been a finisher.”
“He scores every type of goal but when I look at him dropping deep and making those passes, it’s just fantastic to watch and he’s become a creator for Son and it’s mouth-watering when you add Gareth Bale in there as well.”
“The runs they make are so quick and Kane’s ability to find them is just amazing. He drops deep into the pockets and pick out passes. He is Tottenham’s best goalscorer and also their best creator.”
