Ex-Tottenham captain tells talkSPORT they CAN win PL title

first_imgFormer Tottenham captain Michael Dawson believes Mauricio Pochettino can lead the north Londoners to Premier League glory this season.With all eyes on leaders Leicester, Spurs have quietly gone about their business this season and the recent victory at Man City moved them up to second in the table, just TWO points behind the Foxes.The north Londoners – who are still fighting on three fronts in the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League – have lost just three times domestically this term and they look capable of maintaining their title push.Central defender Dawson made over 300 appearances for the club in eight-and-a-half years at White Hart Lane before joining Hull City in 2014.Speaking ahead of their FA Cup clash at Arsenal – live on talkSPORT, the 32-year-old told Drive: “Yes I do [believe they can go on and win the title].“I’m absolutely delighted for everyone there.“The job Pochettino is doing there is incredible. If you look at the players and the way they are playing, he’s got a style of football that suits them.“I love watching them – they go out and play with no fear and you talk about them winning the Premier League and people say they have players who have never won things.“Well they are certainly up there and playing with no fear and I’d back them to go on and win the league.”As they remain in the three competitions in February, Thursday’s Europa League draw at Fiorentina in the last 32 was their 37th of the campaign.Some fear the number of games may eventually catch up with the squad, but Dawson is sure they can come through the fixture congestion well.“[Squad rotation] is one thing the manager does there – if you look at them in the Europa League last night they have a squad and the way they play, the intensity they play [with], he has to change them.“They have a good squad, good players coming through – it’s great to see the likes of Harry Winks and Josh Onomah and young players playing with no fear by the looks of it.“They are going out there and enjoying it, it’s great to see.”last_img read more
