Tottenham Hotspur may have seen their title chances diminish this evening, but that isn’t to say their Premier League race has been run.
Despite being in third place, Tottenham are by no means guaranteed a spot in the Champions League next season.
Spurs currently sit seven points above the likes of Arsenal and Man United, but with a couple of dodgy results in the coming weeks, that gap could come tumbling down if they’re not careful.
With Harry Kane seemingly injured, Lucas Moura still out, and Heung Min Son away, Spurs could find it difficult to get the goals over the next few games.
They also have to deal with central midfield injuries to Moussa Sissoko, Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama, and Luke Amos. That leaves just Winks and Skipp as senior first team players in that position.
It’s going to be a tough grind through the remainder of January for Spurs, but they must do everything in their power not to get dragged back into a race for the top four.
Hopefully, Spurs can put these injuries and today’s defeat behind them and keep up with the likes of Liverpool, City, and Chelsea.
