Andre Villas-Boas reckons Tottenham could be title contenders this season after the crazy start to the Premier League campaign.

The Spurs boss said last month that it was too soon for his revamped side to win the league.

But Tottenham have conceded only one goal in nine games in all competitions and are level on points at the top of the table with Arsenal.

And with no teams enjoying a 100 per cent record AVB said: “I think we could have the tightest Premier League in years. No team is on maximum points so it means this year it will be very tight at the top. We have Manchester United struggling for points but on the other hand they have played all of the top teams.
