Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to the news that Chelsea have closed the gap on the race for Champions League qualification.
Spurs fluffed the opportunity to extend their grip on a top four finish with defeat at West Bromwich Albion, whole Chelsea beat third-placed Liverpool 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
The result means that Tottenham (71) are just two points ahead of Chelsea (69) with two matches remaining.
The more optimistic Spurs fan will point out that we are still playing for third, considering Liverpool have 72 points with one game to play.
In my opinion, Spurs must beat both Newcastle United and Leicester City in their remaining matches to be sure that we dine at Europe’s top table next season.
Here’s a selection of thoughts from your fellow Spurs fans.
Just have to knuckle down and beat Geordies and Leicester Its in our hands Two games we should win against sides on holiday
Fuck it up and we will more than deserve all the piss taking abuse that will come our way

Unfortunately @LFC have been absolutely appalling today and that means it’ll be a nervy end to the season for @SpursOfficial. Should have had top 4 in the bag after winning at the Bridge but the season has really dropped off ?⚽️

We really, really are going to fuck the top four.

The turning point this season was Poch changing a winning team to give Kane a run at the Golden Boot. Poor management that. Oh yeah & where are all those fans who mocked those of us that said top 4 wasn't a gimme after the City game? Possibly 4 points still needed. ??

If we fuck this up make no mistake we will be broken. The players, the fans, the manager. Broken

If we lose top 4 then poch is done in my opinion. Unacceptable to throw away a 10 point lead.

Spurs and Liverpool really taking it to the wire to prove who are bigger bottlers.

If we don’t secure top four after the position we were in AND the fixtures we have left, the season is a failure, no two-ways about it.

Pochettino will be on very thin ice if we don’t get CL. After 4 years he clearly wont have changed our mentality. The absolute acid test if we are ? bottlers or not ?
