A fight to be England captain
back goes forward, he’s always looking for the gaps to cover
“The amount of metres he covers is immense.”
Parker reckons there is more to come from Spurs this season as they chase the Premier League title.
Harry Redknapp’s side reached a half-century of points with Monday night’s 0-0 draw at Liverpool.
It keeps them in third place, seven points behind leaders Manchester City and five adrift of Manchester United.
Parker said: “I’ve never had that many points. It’s already been a fantastic season for us – and it can still be an even more fantastic season for us.
“We’ve still got a long way to go and we need to stay strong and build on what we’ve done.”
The draw at Anfield came without a number of first-team regulars.
“Given how many players we had out, that point says everything.
“I’m really excited about what’s in progress at Spurs and I’m really looking forward to the remaining games.
“We were without Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon, Younes Kaboul, Rafael van der Vaart and William Gallas.
“If someone had said at the start of the season we could go to Anfield without them and not really look like losing, I’m not sure too many would have believed it – certainly not too many fans.
“So that’s a real mark of where we are now. It’s clear to see, as everyone knows, our squad is strong – and I just think it’s our mentality.
“These days, when we go to places like Anfield, we’re not going to roll over easily.”
