Ledley King says that now is the time for Tottenham to end several decades of wait for a league title.
The club will be taking on Arsenal in a derby at White Hart Lane. After having played second fiddle to their North London rivals for several years, Spurs can not only hope to improve their chances of winning the league but also end Arsenal’s hopes. A win for Tottenham at White Hart Lane will send a strong message to the league according to King. The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, and Manchester City have been off colour throughout the campaign.
Leicester City and Tottenham have taken full advantage of such a season by dominating the campaign from start to finish. Leicester have suffered only three defeats in the league so far while Spurs have lost four matches. In comparison to the 2014-15 season, Spurs lost a whopping 12 matches through the whole campaign. The club finished fifth in the table and reached Europa League. Now, a place in the Champions League may have just been secured with this kind of impressive form. The club want even more as they are in a great position for the title. Leicester continue to have a five-point advantage over the London outfit.
“The time is now.The two teams up there now will feel there’s a big chance of winning the league this season. I do believe it will be harder in the coming season. So for both teams – use the opportunity.They are doing everything right and at this stage they are the two favourites. As long as they keep going about their business the way they are, they stand a great chance.I really do believe we will win.I’ve played in enough derbies to know form goes out of the window in these types of games,” said King.
