After some mouth-watering highs in recent weeks, Tottenham Hotspur undoubtedly experienced a real low this weekend as they lost 2-1 to Burnley at Turf Moor.
Spurs had the chance to close the gap at the top to just two points behind leaders Man City and Liverpool.
City were not in Premier League action due to the Carabao Cup Final, and Liverpool ended up dropping two points when facing Man United at Old Trafford.
Come the end of Sunday, Tottenham would have been just three points behind and well in the title race, however, the loss has seriously dented any outside hopes once again.
Spurs are now six behind Liverpool at the top, and face tough games against Chelsea and Arsenal this weekend.
Tottenham have not only there title hopes on the line, but two losses against their London rivals would also plunge them back into a fight for the top four.
Football Fancast believe that both Juan Foyth and Moussa Sissoko should be dropped for the match against the Blues.
They claim that Foyth lacks experience when it matters, and that Sissoko simply needs a rest after a long run of games this season.
‘Unfortunately, the first player that needs to miss out when Spurs visit Chelsea on Wednesday is Juan Foyth.
‘The 21 year-old has shown real character to bounce back from his shocking display in the 3-2 win at Wolves, but his lack of experience and maturity was on full display at Turf Moor.
‘Davinson Sanchez may be a bit rash at times, but the beastly Colombian international will have a far better chance of stopping the irresistible Eden Hazard than Foyth, who looks like an accident waiting to happen at the moment.
‘The next man that needs a rest is surely Moussa Sissoko, who had a run of fantastic form earlier this season, finally proving why the club shelled out £30m for him back in 2016.
‘The 29 year-old’s performances have dipped a little bit in recent weeks though, and he was back to his old self against Burnley – flying all over the pitch with plenty of effort but offering nothing of any quality or substance.
‘With Chelsea sure to be absolutely desperate for three points, Victor Wanyama might be the best choice to replace the Frenchman, offering that extra bit of defensive security in front of the three centre backs.’
