A Chelsea legend has been very vocal on X. When questioned whether Spurs will win the league, he replied with a one-word answer that was savage.

Might they do it? The question on everybody’s mind right now is whether or not Spurs can actually win the Premier League. After nine matches, Ange Postecoglou’s side sit top of the table and remain one of two sides to be unbeaten in the Premier League so far this season.

Certainly, it’s been a great start to life in North London for the new manager, but can he go all the way by lifting the title come the end of the season? Well, one legend of the game who knows a thing or two about winning trophies has had his say.

Chelsea legend John Terry dismisses Spurs winning the league

Reported by the Chelsea Chronicle, former captain and one of the best defenders in Premier League history John Terry has spoken out on whether he thinks Spurs will win the Premier League this season. His simple, one answer reply was “NO”.

John Terry isn’t alone in thinking this. In fact, I struggle to find any neutral fan who thinks Spurs will win the league. They just don’t have the backbone to do it. While the football might be flourishing right now, when the trimmings come down, so will Spurs.

We cannot overlook the underlying problem in their squad. They don’t have an our-and-out centre forward. While Son and Maddison are coming up with the goals now, how will they compete with Man City when Erling Haaland can bang in goals even when the team isn’t playing well?

Look at their rivals last season. Arsenal had a much greater chance of winning the Premier League title since a chunk of their players knew what it took as they’ve been there before. But due to their lack of an out-and-out striker, they crumbled. Spurs will suffer the same fate, except they’re unlikely to go quite as far as Arsenal did, so we cannot call them bottlers.

Meanwhile, find out who Pochettino would like to sign as Thiago Silva’s replacement.

Do you think Spurs will finish in the top four?
