Mauricio Pochettino looks ahead to ‘helpful’ season run-in

Tottenham Hotspur not only have a Champions League semi final to look forward to, but they also now have a firmer grip on the top four race in the Premier League.

After Man United and Arsenal both losing this weekend, Tottenham’s own dropped points to Manchester City seem insignificant.

Spurs have got past their toughest remaining game in the season without dropping out of third, and all four clubs fighting for those two remaining Champions League points have now played the same number of games.

Chelsea could go above Spurs tonight if they win at home to Burnley, but Tottenham would have a game in hand on the blues.

Spurs also have a favourable run in for the rest of the season, playing three home games at a ground in which they have yet to drop a single point.

Tottenham face Brighton, West Ham, and Everton at home, as well as an away trip to Bournemouth.

Poch had this to say on the schedule (Football London): “We hope we can keep going, getting the same result. It is going to be fantastic and it is going to be helpful for us playing in the new stadium with our fans and we hope and wish to repeat the performances of the previous results.”
