Former Tottenham boss Harry Reknapp stands by claims his old club could win the Premier League this season.
He wrote for The Sun: "I've come in for a bit of stick for suggesting Spurs can be serious title challengers this season, but what's so daft about that?
"It is pretty obvious no one is going to run away with it like Liverpool last time — and some of the results have been real coupon busters.
"And I know Tottenham have been a bit of a mixed bag themselves, even if how well they played at Old Trafford was almost ignored as most people focused on how bad United were.
"You cannot knock the squad Jose Mourinho's built, though, and there is genuine competition for every single position.
"It's packed with internationals and the depth means that they're far better placed to handle the inevitable injuries.
"OK, they might still fall short, but it would hardly be the strangest of outcomes in these strangest of times."
