Gallas tells Tottenham teammates: We're good enough to win title

Tottenham veteran William Gallas insists they can win the Premier League this season.

He believes Tottenham now have the players and the mentality to be champions.

Spurs striker Jermain Defoe said: "When Gallas was at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho, they were unbelievable.

"They didn't lose a game at home because they had that rock-solid belief.

"He passes that all on to us and tells us to stop settling for fourth place and qualifying for the Champions League, like we did two years ago.

"He tells us to think, first and foremost, about finishing top. Hopefully the top two will slip up. You never know what will happen between now and the end of the season.

"The other day, I was having a conversation with him and he was saying that he doesn't understand anyone within the squad who thinks we can finish fourth or even third.

"If you look at the players we have got, the way we play and where we are in the League now, why can't we win it?"
