Keane: Tottenham not good enough to win the title

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane believes Tottenham are not good enough to win the Premier League.

Spurs are currently joint top of the table with Liverpool, with Chelsea two points behind.

There was no chance among those teams, as all of them drew this weekend - with Spurs and Chelsea playing each other.

After that 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge, Keane spoke on Sky Sports about Spurs' chances at winning the trophy this season.

Keane told Sky Sports: "He's [manager Jose Mourinho] done it before. His CV is fantastic.

"But I don't think these players he has at Spurs are good enough to win the title. They have the X-factor in Mourinho and Harry Kane, I don't think that's enough. They were hanging on at the end at Stamford Bridge.

"I think they are on for a very good season, but a very good season is a big difference to trying to win the league title. I don't think so. Manchester City are stronger than Spurs."

Keane added: "Spurs have had some really good results, but they have still had the odd blip here and there, against Newcastle and West Ham.

"But there wasn't much surprise with what we saw with Tottenham at Chelsea. They are quite dependent on Harry Kane, he was quiet.

"Jose Mourinho said his players were disappointed in the dressing room, I think they should be delighted. Mourinho will be delighted."
