Tottenham Already Have The Strikers To Challenge For The Premier League Title - Gary Mabbutt

Former skipper rejects notion that new forward is needed at White Hart Lane.
Former Tottenham captain Gary Mabbutt has dismissed talk that Spurs are desperate for a new striker and believes the current squad is good enough to go all the way in domestic and European competition this season.

Spurs travel to Craven Cottage on Sunday for a fourth round FA Cup clash with Fulham with all four strikers struggling for goals this season.

Jermain Defoe (0), Peter Crouch (1), Roman Pavlyuchenko (5) and Robbie Keane (0) have bagged a meagre six Premier League goals between them this season, which has led to questions over whether their firepower can match their aspirations.

Manager Harry Redknapp has made no secret of his desire to bring in a world-class frontman with the club preparing a possible move for Atletico Madrid hitman Diego Forlan.

But Mabbutt believes the dynamic within the team has changed and with goals coming from all areas of the team, they should stick with the squad they have.
