The Premier League table this season is yet to take shape, with Manchester City still in 10th position and Leicester City currently occupying top spot.

Tottenham are one of the most in-form teams in the league this season, and are currently second in the league. Spurs have won their last three league games and are unbeaten in their last five games.

Meanwhile, Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes Spurs will rather win the league than Chelsea, due to their star studded attacking front three of Harry Kane, Son and Gareth Bale.

Hasselbaink told Ladbrokes: “I fancy – and this might hurt Chelsea supporters – Spurs for the title. I really do.

“If you look at their front three, they’ve got Gareth Bale, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son. On paper that is the best front three in the country.

“The only area where they struggle a little bit is at centre-half, and maybe right-back. But if you look at all the teams in the league, Liverpool have problems at the back. Man City have problems at the back. So do Chelsea and Man United.

“It should be – if you look on paper – Tottenham’s year.”
