Spurs defeated Norwich 2-0 on Saturday.
Former Tottenham defender Bassong told the Pink 'Un: "A lot of teams can challenge for the title, even lower teams can improve this season so it's going to be a tough battle. They will be up there I hope.
"They've brought top-quality players in, and as soon as they get up to speed they will do very well. They are here to perform, which is what they did on Saturday."
