Tottenham defender, Michael Dawson has heaped praise on Tottenham’s season so far, and has even claimed that the team has what it takes to lift the title come the end of the season.
Dawson, who joined Tottenham in 2005 from Nottingham Forest, has had a rollercoaster ride since joining the North London outfit.
He made his debut on April 15th 2005 in a 2-2 draw with Liverpool, and has since gone on to make a total of 231 Premier League appearances.
He has seen himself partner one of England’s most consistent defenders in Ledley King, and also gaining the Captains armband in 2012. He has fought his way back into the team, showing great desire and determination and it is clear to see his love for Spurs.

The new season has seen him solidify a blossoming partnership with fellow center back, Vlad Chiricheș and Dawson believes that it’s all down to head coach, André Villas-Boas.
“The gaffer (sic) is a great coach, he’s really determined and you can see he really wants us all to do well.
” Dawson said
“I think most thought it would be difficult for him here [at Tottenham] because of what happened with his time at Chelsea, but he has shown what a great coach he is.
“Our aim this year is top four, but I think most of the lads believe we have the quality to win the title. We've got a great bunch of players and we've shown on the pitch that we can dig deep and win when needed and it’s that desire and determination you need to win the league.
“We’re taking each game as they come. We’re trying not to get distracted with where we are, but there is a belief among the squad that we do have a shot at that title.
Tottenham currently sit top of the table heading into the New Year, with Chelsea sat 3 points behind with 2 games in hand.
