Speaking to Reuters, Ledley King believes our current run proves that the team have got over their initial problems at Wembley when they managed only two wins in their first 12 games at our temporary home.
”The Wembley hoodoo is firmly gone now,“ he said. ”It takes a while to settle in. Everything is a bit different. Even for the fans it is different.
King added:”You expect a few hiccups moving into a new stadium, but the team are over that now. They have put in some good performances – Dortmund, Real Madrid, the Liverpool game – and then Stoke on the weekend was another great performance, scoring five goals.”
Following the Brighton win, and with runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City up next Mauricio Pochettino proclaimed that Tottenham would “go to Manchester to win”.
City are in fine form, having earned a Premier League-record 15th consecutive win when they beat Swansea City on Wednesday, maintaining their 11-point lead at the top of the table however King says the title race is not over yet, saying that in Harry Kane, We have one of the best strikers in the world who can cause City problems.
”People are looking at this Christmas period and hoping that City slip up. Then if they do slip up once, how will they react?: said King,”I have been around in this league long enough to know it only takes a few bad results and the picture changes.”
King added: ”When you talk about the best strikers in the world you always talk about (Cristiano) Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but after that Harry Kane is right up there, especially in terms of (a) number nine.
King went on to say ”For me, (City‘s) Sergio Aguero was the best striker in the Premier League, but I think that Harry has overtaken him now. Right now, I wouldn’t swap Harry for anyone. If he plays well, Spurs have every chance against City.”
