There are no passengers in Tottenham's squad and they are right in the title mix, says former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp.
The North London side continued their storming form on Saturday, recording a second successive 4-0 victory at White Hart Lane as they beat Bournemouth.
Tottenham remain unbeaten at home in the Premier League this season and matched their best ever record in a single campaign for home wins, having done so 12 times in a row.
The win saw them close the gap on Chelsea once again to four points ahead of the Blues' trip to Old Trafford live on Nissan Super Sunday, with Redknapp praising the work ethic of his former side.
"There are no passengers in this Tottenham team. Everybody is at it. Everybody is closing, pressing and they all buy in to it," he told Premier League Live following the game.
"I'm not trying to dig out Arsenal here but in the Arsenal team at times, they do have passengers and people who don't buy into the pressing side of the game.
"At Tottenham, it is completely different. You can see the energy they play at because the amount of times they win the ball up the pitch, it becomes infectious. They think 'this is great' and every time somebody goes to press the ball, someone is in behind them. It happens all over the pitch.
"You have to be well coached but you have to buy into it, you have to be young and you have to be full of energy which is what this Spurs side are at the moment.

"Whether they can go on and win the league, it might take a bit of a capitulation from Chelsea, but they are right in the mix."
