Waddle: Spurs are in the mix for Premier League title

Chris Waddle believes his former side Tottenham are right in the mix in the Premier League title race.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side responded to their shock home loss to Wolves by beating Cardiff on Tuesday, comfortably winning 3-0 courtesy of goals from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min.

The result, coupled with Liverpool‘s defeat to Manchester City on Thursday, leaves Spurs in third-place – six points behind Jurgen Klopp’s leaders.

Waddle – who played for Tottenham between 1985 and 1989 – believes his former side are in the mix to make a serious title challenge.

“I would put Spurs in the mix – the Champions League might play a big part and the Wolves defeat was one of those games – it can happen, but everybody thinks that’s them done and why? They went to Cardiff and looked fresh, so why write them off?” Waddle told BBC 5 Live.

“They have got Manchester United, Liverpool and City coming up.

“If they go and get a result, what do people say then? You do not know what is going to happen. At the minute you would say City and Liverpool are slightly ahead, but you don’t know what is going to happen.

“There are three teams in it, for me.”
