Tottenham Hotspur suffered their fifth successive away defeat in the Premier League on Saturday after a narrow 1-0 loss at Manchester City.
Phil Foden’s fifth-minute header proved to be enough to separate the sides with Spurs spurning a number of good opportunities in front of goal to get something out of the match.
The loss had many fans fearing that it was an opportunity for Arsenal and Manchester United make up ground and capitalise on Spurs’ inability to notch up any additional points.
Arsenal faced Crystal Palace at the Emirates yesterday afternoon, while Manchester United travelled to inconsistent Everton.
While on paper many would have expected Arsenal to take all three points from the match, they were on the end of a 3-2 defeat to Roy Hodgson’s side.
Manchester United’s form since the full time appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been poor and they were humbled 4-0 at Goodison Park.
The two defeats have represented a huge boost to Tottenham’s top four chances with Pochettino’s side still occupying third place and are a point ahead of Arsenal and three better than United.
