Arsenal legend Ian Wright has admitted that Tottenham will have “deserved” to win the Premier League title, if they can hunt down Chelsea.

Wright admits that “everything” about Spurs has impressed him this season as they look to overhaul Chelsea’s four-point lead at the top of the table with just six games to go.

The 53-year-old, who made over 200 league appearances for the Gunners, thinks Mauricio Pochettino’s outfit would be worthy winners if they catch Antonio Conte’s men.

“If Tottenham win their first league title since 1961, nobody could say they don’t deserve to be champions,” he wrote in The Sun.

“Everyone was resigned to it being a procession rather than a race when Chelsea kicked off this month with a ten-point lead at the top.

“But while everyone else chucked in the towel and handed the crown to the Blues, Spurs have refused to abandon the chase.

“Everything about them impresses me; the players, manager, their attitude and the fantastic football they produce for their fans.”
