Arsenal legend Martin Keown has tipped Tottenham to have a strong season this year.
Spurs signed Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon to permanent deals while also getting Giovani Lo Celso on loan.
They may have missed out on Paulo Dybala on transfer deadline day, but have undoubtedly made improvements on last year’s squad.
Keown told talkSPORT: “Our neighbours just down the road, Tottenham, listen they never had a home last season, they had nine players involved in the latter stages of the World Cup and they made it to a Champions League final.
“Why can’t they win the league? They will be thinking that now they’ve bought players, last season they didn’t buy anyone.”

He said: “No. But I think they will have something to say about who might win it. They are looking strong.
“They are just purring in the background there. They’ve got a top manager there in Pochettino. He called out the chairman really and they spent a bit of money.
