Defoe adamant Spurs title contenders - thanks to Mourinho

Former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe believes his old team are title contenders under Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho has a habit of winning titles in his second season in charge of a club. The only time he's failed to do so in the Premier League was with Manchester United in the 2017-18, when they finished second.

So can history repeat itself and can Tottenham win their first top-flight title in 50 years? Defoe seems to think so.

"Of course they can," said the 38-year-old Rangers striker to Mennie Talks.

"It's not me being biased, I'm just looking at the performances. We have Mourinho and we are playing the way we are, so anything can happen."
