Tottenham Hotspur begin their run of four games in eight days tomorrow night, starting with a home fixture against the title holders Manchester City.
A win at Wembley would send Pochettino’s men leapfrogging over the blue side of Manchester, staying in touch with Liverpool who lead the race.
Two days later, Tottenham face another London derby against West Ham, the last of which they edged 1-0.
This fixture is in the latest round of the EFL Cup, something Spurs will be determined to stay a part of after their Champions League woes.
The Carabao and FA Cups could prove to be Tottenham’s best chance of silverware this season.
Next up comes Wolves away in the Premier League, a tough fixture with the high flying promoted club adapting well to life at the top.
This also becomes an extremely vital game if Spurs fail to beat City at Wembley. They will need three points to stay in touch with the rest of the big six, apart from United of course.
The final game across the eight days comes at home to PSV in the Champions League.
There are still thin hopes of survival in the competition, but Spurs will need to win all three remaining games to stand any realistic chance.
Spurs could be knocked out of two competitions in the next eight days, or they could shape their fate positively in three.
Let’s hope it is the latter.
