Spurs can do the double claims former Celtic boss

Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon has insisted that Spurs are very much in with a chance of winning both the Premier League as well as the Champions League this season.

Spurs have one foot in the quarter finals of the Champions League after they swept aside Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the first leg of the round of 16 tie at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night.

On the Premier League front, Tottenham currently find themselves 5 points behind Manchester City and Liverpool with 12 games left to play including trips to both Anfield and the Etihad ahead of them.

Lennon said Spurs are peaking just at the right time and their momentum could carry them all the way.

Tottenham will soon be boosted by the return of both Harry Kane and Dele Alli, with Kane said to be in line for a possible recall for the trip to Burnley in the Premier League next Sunday (Sky Sports).

Speaking to Sky Sports’ The Debate, he said: “Their league challenge is still very much alive. They are only 5 points off with four games to go. They are right in it if they can keep this momentum going.”

With respect to the Champions League, the 47-year-old said that if Spurs reach the final eight, they can go all the way provided they get a bit of luck with the draw.

He added, “Certainly in the Champions League, once you get into the quarterfinals, anyone can win it after that. They might get a favourable draw and get into the semifinals and then momentum can take you all the way if you’re playing well.”
