Can Spurs increase lead over Chelsea this weekend?

Can Spurs increase lead over Chelsea this weekend?

Tottenham Hotspur hold the advantage over Chelsea in the race for Champions League football heading into Sunday’s huge clash at Stamford Bridge. We currently hold a five point lead over our London rivals with eight games to play, and are only two points below Liverpool who have played a game more. Victory for us this weekend would go a huge way towards playing in Europe’s elite club cup competition. However, history is not on our side. We have never won…

The Quarter Final Trail on New Turf

The Quarter Final Trail on New Turf

There has been much fuss made of the playing surface at Spotland Stadium in the run up to Rochdale’s FA Cup 5th Round clash with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Millwall had to suffer a torrid time on what was described as a beach by various pundits, and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was not happy with the prospect of his team playing under the same conditions. Rochdale were forced to make their third successive postponement of a League One game this…

Are Tottenham the Favourites for the North London Derby?

Are Tottenham the Favourites for the North London Derby?

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur meet at the Emirates Stadium in the first North London Derby of the 2017-18 Premier League season this Saturday. Tottenham made an excellent start to the month with a convincing 3-1 thrashing of defending champions Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday 1 November. Harry Kane was back in the starting lineup for the first time since our 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool in October, having missed the EFL Cup loss to West Ham and the…

Man City v Tottenham – A Statistical Preview

Man City v Tottenham – A Statistical Preview

Only three positions separate Spurs and Man City in the Premier League table and despite having their title chances rubbished following a heavy defeat to Everton last weekend, only three points separate the sides. Tottenham are of course in much better form, with Pep Guardiola all but admitting the title was beyond his side following that defeat. But should their Citizens be written off? A look at the form guide gives us some indication of what might happen at the…

Swanning Around

Swanning Around

Tottenham are in desperate need of a big result. Back to back defeats at the hands of Monaco and Chelsea have dealt a serious blow to Spurs’ season, and while there is still a long way to go, a return to form prior to the all-important Christmas period is crucial. The victory over Manchester City aside, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are yet to hit the heights of last term, and I feel as though the unbeaten tag Spurs had in the…

Leverlosing?

Tottenham return to Wembley this Wednesday evening for a crucial Champions League encounter with Bayer Leverkusen. The two sides fought out a 0-0 draw a fortnight ago in Germany, a match which was dominated for the most part by Bayer Leverkusen. It could be argued that Spurs were fortunate to come away with a point, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side defended well and still have the opportunity of qualifying for the latter stages of the competition. If Tottenham are going to…

Spurs Are on Their Way to Wembley….

….to play their first Champions League fixture since 2011. Tottenham’s third place finish in the Premier League last season meant the end of Thursday night football for the time being at least, and Spurs will now be in action on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, taking part in Europe’s elite football competition. Mauricio Pochettino’s men come into tonight’s clash with Monaco off the back of an impressive display away at Stoke this past weekend, a game where they ran out 4-0…

Are The Odds Stacked Against Us?

Are The Odds Stacked Against Us?

The 2016/17 Premier League season gets underway in just three days time, and there are some very interesting prices available on a variety of markets involving Tottenham Hotspur over the course of the upcoming season. Although Spurs were involved in the title race for the bulk of last term and ultimately finished in third place in the Premier League, the bookies only rate Tottenham as the joint 5th favourites for the upcoming EPL crown. With Arsenal having snatched 2nd spot…

Is the Premier League Title There for the Taking?

Is the Premier League Title There for the Taking?

It certainly was last season, and Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City took full advantage. For me, teams in the English top flight have forgotten the art of defending over the past few years, and the standard has definitely slipped. Although Manchester City made it to the semi final stages of the 2015/16 Champions League, the performances of English sides as a whole was very disappointing, and the previous year was even worse. This certainly supports the argument that top level English…

Tottenham v Man City Preview

Tottenham v Man City Preview

The pick of the midweek fixtures is definitely the clash at White Hart Lane between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City. Spurs sit seven points behind title chasing City but a victory for Tim Sherwood’s men would see them close that gap to just four and be hot on the heels of the Premier League leaders. Since the arrival of Tim Sherwood as manager, Tottenham have been in terrific form in the league and should come into this game full of…
