Cape Town - Harry Winks believes Tottenham have what it takes to fly under the radar and cause a surprise in the Premier League title race this season.

Winks enjoyed a 23rd birthday on Saturday as Spurs beat Newcastle to temporarily move into second place in the Premier League, before Manchester City beat Arsenal the day after.

Spurs received a further boost as Liverpool dropped more points in a 1-1 draw with West Ham on Monday and are now five points behind the leaders and two behind City.

They remain clear outsiders in the title race, but they still have to visit Liverpool and Manchester City and could still have a say in the title race, maybe even win it.

"It's difficult, we lost to Wolves and people said that we were out of the title race and it's time for us to get top four and then we won against Newcastle and people say we are back in it," Winks said.

"We don't really get involved in that whirlwind, all we do is take it game by game and focus on the next opposition.

"At the end of the season we will be looking into that and see where the title is.

"We have still got Man City to go to and Liverpool to go to, they are two games that if we want to be title contenders we have to win, for now we are happy with the position we are in, we are doing really well and that is the most important thing."

Tottenham host Leicester in the Premier League at Wembley on Sunday.
