Huddlestone eyes Tottenham title tilt

Spurs’ 2-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday sees them sat on 14

points from eight games, the same return as Manchester United and

Arsenal. They are just five points behind leaders Chelsea and are

well-placed to push on from this point. Harry Redknapp’s men will

have to juggle their domestic endeavours with Champions League

commitments, but they now have the squad to compete on multiple

fronts. With that in mind, Huddlestone sees no reason why they

cannot launch a sustained assault on the top flight title. “If we

can be a bit more consistent, because we’ve dropped a few sloppy

points, then why not,” said the England international, who bagged a

controversial winner to see off Fulham at Craven Cottage. “Title

contenders? That’s a big statement to make, but the way the season

is going, everybody keeps taking points off each other. “If you’re

up there March, April time, you’ve got a great chance.”
