Jamie O'Hara Reckons Spurs & Everton Will Challenge For Title This Season

It's already clear that is going to be a strange Premier League season. The lacks of supporters inside stadiums is still taking some getting used to, but the results on the pitch have been bizarre.

The last set of fixtures provided the best example of this dynamic at play, with 6-1 and 7-2 defeats for Manchester United and Liverpool respectively showing how strange this campaign has been thus far.

It's unclear if surprising results such as those ones will continue for the whole season, but it could have big impact on the final standings at the end of the campaign. The top four looks wide open as things stand, but could we some some surprised title challengers?

Appearing on Talksport earlier today, Jamie O'Hara said that he thinks both Everton and Spurs will compete with Liverpool and Manchester City for the title this season.

It's a four-horse race. Liverpool are favourites, you can't write them off even though they've had a bad result against Villa, they're still favourites.

Man City will obviously be there. You have to put Everton and Spurs in the mix...

[Spurs] have got Mourinho, he's a winner. I think he took a lot of stick last season with people questioning him. Then that first game in the season even I gave him a bit of stick.

They've brought in Reguillon, they've brought in Vinicius, they've brought in Bale. All of a sudden you're looking at them and you're seeing that they've got the belief.

I just think that Mourinho has got something about him, he's the 'special one'. I think he can do something special this year.

Liverpool and Everton will meet tomorrow in what will be the first big test of the top four credentials Carlo Ancelotti's side.

O'Hara believes a win in that one would cement their status as title contenders.

The big game for me is at the weekend with Everton vs Liverpool. If Everton get a result you definitely have to say that they are in for it.

I think that Liverpool fans are a little bit worried about Everton...

This season things are going to change. I think you're looking at a new top four.
