Roy Keane has questioned Tottenham’s title credentials despite Jose Mourinho’s side reclaiming top spot in the Premier League with a laboured goalless draw at Chelsea.
Spurs simply needed to avoid defeat at Stamford Bridge to return to the summit and they just about got the job done, with Chelsea guilty of squandering a host of second-half chances in a cagey affair on Sunday.
The point maintained Tottenham’s two-point lead over their London rivals and, crucially, moved them ahead of champions Liverpool on goal difference, further fuelling the prospect of a title triumph come May.
However, asked whether Mourinho could steer Spurs to their first league title since 1961, Keane told Sky Sports: “He’s done it before. His CV is fantastic.
“But I don’t think these players he has at Spurs are good enough to win the title. They have the X-factor in Mourinho and Harry Kane, I don’t think that’s enough. They were hanging on at the end at Stamford Bridge.
“I think they are on for a very good season, but a very good season is a big difference to trying to win the league title. I don’t think so. Manchester City are stronger than Spurs.”
Keane added: “Spurs have had some really good results, but they have still had the odd blip here and there, against Newcastle and West Ham.
“But there wasn’t much surprise with what we saw with Tottenham at Chelsea. They are quite dependent on Harry Kane, he was quiet.
