While they are expected to continue with the dominance next term, Saunders contends Tottenham could be a surprise package in the title race.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Saunders claimed that the north Londoners could be just one or two signings away from challenging the two English heavyweights at the top of the Premier League.

Liverpool seal third signing of the summer transfer window

“The manager is relentless. He doesn’t just want to win something now, he’s not interested in four years he’ll have a good team, he wants to win something now or he’s off," he noted.
“I think they are a couple of signings away from having a right go at Man City and Liverpool," he added.

Tottenham's decent summer transfer window

Saunders' suggestion came at a time Tottenham are enjoying a decent summer transfer window by their standards.

The Antonio Conte-tutored side have already completed three signings in Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma, and Fraser Forster.

They are expected to make more signings in the coming weeks as they look to challenge for titles.

Spurs had a successful end-to-the-season last term, sealing a fourth-place finish behind Chelsea and ahead of arch-rivals, Arsenal.
