Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell admitted that seeing Jose Mourinho rebuild Tottenham into a winning team and together with Gareth Bale’s return to the club is not pleasant viewing for Gunners.
Spurs currently sit just two points off Liverpool in top spot but they could even be leading the pack if they had not thrown away points at home against Newcastle and West Ham.
Jose Mourinho has refused to get carried away by talk of a potential title challenge, insisting instead that his players are focused on winning every game.
Campbell begrudgingly admitted that he can see the Lilywhites going on to lift the title this season.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Arsenal man said: “This is every Arsenal fan’s worst nightmare.
“Mourinho making a difference at Spurs and Spurs getting Bale in, strengthening that squad and looking really strong.
“Can they win the league? Yes, there will be a difference with Mourinho at the helm. Will they? They better not! It’s one of those, we know the attacking prowess they’ve got, we know Harry Kane, Son, Bale now.”
However, Campbell insisted that he is yet to be convinced by Tottenham’s consistency and that the next few weeks will tell us a lot about the club’s title credentials.
He added: “They’ve got an embarrassment of riches but to win a title you have to had tread that path, most of the time, Leicester were an anomaly and an anomaly happens once in a blue moon.
“You have to have been successful, as far as I’m concerned, to go that whole way. Spurs haven’t done it, they’ve got no history of doing it.
“Can they beat anybody? Yes they can, they can beat anybody. Do they have that longevity and consistency to do it week to week? I’m not convinced yet, I need to see them against some of the bigger teams.
“Obviously the West Ham 3-3 would have knocked their confidence but they came back with a win so fair play to them.
“We’re going to see over the next few weeks how Spurs are because then they’ve got some big games coming up.
“If they can come through some of them being up there [in the table], then you think, ‘okay, now you’ve got to keep an eye on them.”
