A run of games against Man United, Liverpool and Arsenal could have derailed Tottenham’s bid for Champions League qualification for next season, but instead two victories and a draw have pushed them above Chelsea into the top 4 and left last season’s champions looking the more vulnerable team.
Spurs have impressed in their Wembley wins over United and in Saturday’s north London derby, while they recovered from a sluggish start to give Liverpool a real run for their money at Anfield. Their next four league games are against Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Huddersfield and Newcastle and give them a real opportunity to push on towards a top four finish, if they can balance the demands of the league with those of a Champions League last 16 tie against Juve.
From 6/4 at the end of January, Tottenham are now 1/3 across the board to finish in the top four, with Chelsea at Evens ahead of their home game against West Brom on Monday. That ought to be a straightforward fixture against the bottom club, but after 3-goal defeats to Bournemouth and Watford, Chelsea clearly have the jitters.
