Tottenham Hotspur once found themselves in a three horse race for the Premier League along with Manchester City and Liverpool and at one stage even finding themselves in front of City in second place.
However, a poor string of results pushed them away from a potential title challenge to fighting for their place in the top four.
Not many football supporters would disagree with the fact that Liverpool and Manchester City have been in a different class to the other teams this season which has seen them amass an impressive 20-plus point gap between themselves and the chasing pack.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has given his opinion on whether the club can close the gap but highlighted that talks must be held with club officials to see whether there is an appetite to change the way the club operates.
He said: It is difficult to assess when you compare the points from City and Liverpool and the rest of the team it is massive. But the motivation in the last part of the season was massive, a different motivation to everyone else. They have an unbelievable squad to sustain competing at the same level. Different teams it was more difficult to keep this level. The idea is to improve every season, but that is part of my answer before. What is next for Tottenham, we need to discover after the final in Madrid, to talk and see how we are going to operate in the future? (Football.London)
Tottenham will have to spend in the summer to fight it out for the title next season if they want to close the gap on the top two.
