Tottenham clashed with Liverpool in north London on Saturday evening in gameweek 7 of the 2023/24 Premier League season. Spurs headed into the game looking to match their best-ever start to a Premier League campaign after seven games.
The Lilywhites were unbeaten in the league and, when all was said and done on Saturday, that run continued.
Tottenham are now 2nd in the Premier League with five wins and two draws, leaving them just one point off Manchester City, who face 3rd-place Arsenal later this week.A draw or Arsenal win in that game could see Spurs go top of the table and given the new lease of life they have under Ange Postecoglou, they are now among the favourites to win the Premier League.
Tottenham can be backed at 16/1 with bet365 to win the 2023/24 Premier League.
Speaking after Saturday’s game, Gary Neville did express his belief that Spurs are not title contenders. But given they have no European football this campaign and are already out of the League Cup, their lack of quality squad depth may not be as big an issue as Nevillie made it out to be in his post-match comments:
“I don’t think they’re title contenders,” Neville said on Sky Sports. “When you see the bench coming on at the end, you know they’re not title contenders, I think they’ll be way off that. But what they are is spirited, more resilient than I imagined they would be and I say that more out of the North London Derby last week and what I saw.
“They’re in a good place. There’s a spirit in the stadium, on the pitch and there is a connection with the way the manager is, the players on the pitch and the people in the crowd. We’re not talking too much about the boardroom at Spurs as much as we would have been in the last few years.
“There’s no doubt there’s something happening here for Spurs. It isn’t always as good as it looks and I think there will be challenges down the line, but I think they’ll have a better season than I thought they would.”
