After yesterday’s triumphant victory over Manchester City last time out in the Premier League, Mauricio Pochettino and his increasingly impressive Tottenham Hotspur outfit have now arguably sounded themselves out as genuine title contenders throughout the remainder of the 2015/16 campaign.
The likes of Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen have continued their fine run of form for Spurs since the turn of the year, new emerging stars – such as Eric Dier and Dele Alli – have also served Tottenham well across the current season, and although the determined Leicester City still remain top of the Premier League table right in the here and now, nothing has quite been decided among the upper echelons of the English top-flight as of yet.
So, in light of what has so far proven a rather entertaining 2015/16 domestic campaign thus far, have Tottenham Hotspur really got what it takes to land the Premier League title this season?
Well, as arch rivals – Arsenal – also managed to seal a possible title defining victory over Claudio Ranieri’s plucky Foxes this weekend, thoughts of landing some much needed domestic silverware have certainly intensified in and around North London as of late…
Not to discount Leicester or Man City, but the fact that the title could be between Arsenal and Spurs is so exciting yet so frightening.

Some fans will nonetheless find themselves getting carried away should Tottenham Hotspur actually achieve the so-called impossible at the end of the season…
Tottenham are still outsiders so I'll happily say if we win the title I'll jump in the Thames ….

…and after yesterday’s impressive victory over Manchester City, who could really blame them?
At this stage of the season, momentum and confidence play a huge part in deciding the title race and, at the moment, Tottenham have both.

Many non-Tottenham supporters are admittedly feeling somewhat apprehensive towards their title-contending counterparts down at White Hart Lane this season…
Spurs look really tough to bet against for the title this year, as much as I hate to say it ????

…even if Mauricio Pochettino’s side were in-fact somewhat lucky to receive a potential match-winning penalty at the Etihad this weekend…
That penalty against Sterling confirms what we knew already, that Mark Clattenberg doesn't know his back from his elbow.

Many nevertheless feel as if Tottenham deserve to be crowned champions come the end of the 2015/16 campaign…
Would be really glad if Tottenham win the epl title. They've been absolutely good on the road. Dele Alli is my young player of the year.

…with the current Spurs boss himself also worthy of receiving the ‘manager of the season’ award when all is said and done…
