Chelsea legend John Terry gives clear Tottenham title verdict

John Terry’s one-word remark makes it very obvious how he feels about Tottenham’s chances of winning the Premier League. With a 2-0 victory over Fulham on Monday night, Ange Postecoglou’s team reclaimed first place in the standings. With a matchup against Crystal Palace on Friday night, they have the opportunity to extend their lead to five points before any of their competitors play.

Mauricio Pochettino is expected to make a hostile homecoming to his previous team when Spurs play Chelsea on Monday, November 6 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Blues play Brentford at Stamford Bridge in the early Saturday kickoff, though, before that. As proven by the season in which Antonio Conte won the championship with Chelsea, entering the title battle later in the season is not impossible with only nine games played and Chelsea already being 11 points off the top.

The west Londoners’ slow start has already been partially corrected thanks to two straight away victories that came before the 2-2 draw with Arsenal. Getting a point from their fierce London rivals before the game would have probably been considered a success, but the way the match was handled will undoubtedly have soured Pochettino.

Before late goals from Declan Rice and Leandro Trossard helped the Gunners salvage a point, the hosts were two goals up and in control. Nevertheless, Pochettino has reason to be upbeat about the rest of the season after watching the performances of Cole Palmer, Mykhailo Mudryk, and Conor Gallagher.

Chelsea’s chances of winning the title are still a ways off, but Spurs are undoubtedly being spoken about, according to former midfielder Jamie O’Hara, who thinks there is no reason why they can’t. He stated, via Football Daily, “I’d love to think that we can [win the title],” on Sky Sports. “I believe that getting into the top four is now something we must do, and failing to do so would be somewhat disastrous. We could match Manchester City’s pace. Exactly why not? There are so many strong teams this year. Chelsea will succeed against teams like Aston Villa, Newcastle, Brighton, and Liverpool.

“Teams will deduct points from one another. Tottenham will drop games; we haven’t dropped a game yet, but we will. Man City, as well as Arsenal and Liverpool, will drop some games. It depends on who can maintain consistency and minimize errors. Spurs have a chance to win the league. Why can’t we defeat the competition? We crumble because we’re Tottenham, everyone says.

On his own social media, O’Hara later uploaded the video with the message “Can Spurs win the league [two eyes raised emojis].” And Terry was quite prompt to respond, giving his assessment of the Lilywhites’ chances by simply writing “NO” in the comments.

Chelsea supporters were understandably quick to reply to their former captain with @Piitzy_ writing: “Captain, Leader and a Legend for a reason [four fire emojis and blue heart emoji].” While @JessCFCW added: “JT’s cooking, My captain.”
