Frank Lampard is puzzled by what Jose Mourinho said about Spurs.
The Tottenham manager earlier remarked: “We are not even in the race so we are not a horse,” the Portuguese manager said. “We are the small, young horse – a pony. We are just a pony, and you see the difference.”
However, Lampard disagrees with Mourinho. He believes that Spurs are as much a title contender as any other top tier Premier League team.
“It’s Jose’s call to say it as he sees it from his end, but from the outside they are top of the league, it’s very close at the top,” he said.
“If we’re contenders then they have to be contenders. If you’ve got Harry Kane and Son in your team – Son has got nine goals, Harry’s got seven, they keep clean sheets well because of the organisation of their team – they would expect to be in the race.
“They have invested heavily – they’ve got people like Gareth Bale sitting on the bench, Dele Alli’s not here. There is a strong squad there. So, I think we are all competing, but Jose can say it as he sees it.”
“There are not just ourselves, Tottenham and Liverpool that are in the race, there are a lot of teams around us in this season which is looking slightly different to recent seasons. I don’t know what to say about that to be honest.”
