"When it comes down to [the top four battle], it's all about the squad - and Spurs have got a very strong squad with lots of talent and lots of quality players," Sky Sports News quotes Anderton as saying. "There's a new buzz about the place, there's lot of positivity - and they're playing good football.
"Of course Emmanuel Adebayor has come back in - that was a masterstroke by Tim to get him back on board and playing well. At the moment they look like a very good team."
Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League, level on points with Liverpool.
