Chelsea are 1st on the table, while Tottenham are 5th, but despite 10 points separating the two teams, Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen believes that Chelsea are not much better than Tottenham.

When asked if Spurs could challenge for the Premier League title, Eriksen told Sky Sports News: “Yes, 100 per cent, for sure.

“If you watch the first 44-and-a-half minutes of the game at Chelsea, I think we did very, very well. We showed we can compete with them.

“It’s not like you can say “Oh they are much better”. Yes, they are doing really well and have not lost for 11 games and are on a really good run.

“But for us it is just about keeping up with everyone else and being as close as possible to the top. Of course I really want us to do better than last season, when we did really well.

“Hopefully we will finish even higher and we want to be in a position to do that so that is the main target.”
