Tottenham Hotspur moved to the second spot in the Premier League table after thrashing Bournemouth 5-0 at Wembley on Boxing Day. The result came just thee days after Spurs scored six against Everton at Goodison Park.

On present form, this Tottenham team looks near unstoppable and has Spurs fans believing that they can go toe to toe with Liverpool for the title. The Merseysiders, however, have been near flawless so far this season, and stunningly have only conceded 7 goals in 19 Premier League games.

What could work to Spurs’ advantage in the near future however is that having played the majority of their first 18 games of the season away from home, Spurs have some real home bankers coming up over the next couple of months.

Liverpool, on the other hand, are just entering a tricky set of fixtures. Here’s how the next 8 league fixtures look for both teams:

Tottenham’s next 8 PL fixtures: Wolves (H) Cardiff (A) Man United (H) Fulham (A) Watford (H) Newcastle (H) Leicester (H) Burnley (A)

Liverpool’s next 8 PL fixtures: Arsenal (H) Citeh (A) Brighton (A) Palace (H) Leicester (H) West Ham (A) Bournemouth (H) Man United (A)

On paper, many of Tottenham’s games look far more winnable. While Liverpool have to play Arsenal, Man City, and Man Utd apart from making a tricky trip to West Ham, the only potential banana peel Tottenham seem to have is their home tie to Man Utd.

However, in the form Liverpool are in, you could see them winning most of those fixtures irrespective of who they are playing.

It is thus imperative that Spurs continue their impressive run of form and try to get maximum points off the next 8 games in order to capitalise on any potential Liverpool slip up.
