Tottenham Hotspur were second in the League not long ago, but they now find themselves embroiled in a fight for the top four.
As many of you will know, finishing in the top four represents the chance to compete in the Champions League next season, something Spurs will be determined to do in their new stadium.
Spurs have been in the top European competition for three seasons in a row now, and won’t want to put a stop to their label of ‘regulars’.
Despite sitting comfortably just over a week ago, defeats to Burnley and Chelsea, as well as two dropped points against Arsenal have seen Spurs pulled back into the brawl.
While Tottenham have been dropping those eight points, the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, and Man United have been picking them up aplenty.
Chelsea boss Sarri has now revealed that his side went into their match against Spurs with the aim to pull them back into the top four fight, and he warns that is now where they are.
Sarri said (Guardian): “We were trying to involve Tottenham in the fight and I think that now they are involved.
“So, better four teams for two places than three for one place.”
