It looks like it is all doom and gloom surrounding Tottenham at the moment after they crashed out of the title race owing to successive losses against Burnley and Chelsea. While Tottenham fans were dreaming off going 2 points behind Liverpool going into last weekend, they could find themselves just a point above Arsenal after the North London derby.
This has set alarm bells ringing among Spurs fans as Tottenham still have to travel to the Etihad as well as Anfield, and could thus find their Champions League spot in jeopardy. However, Tottenham manager Pochettino has claimed that the team can completely change the feeling around the club with wins over Arsenal and Dortmund.
If Spurs manage to win their next two games, they could find themselves 7 points clear of their North London rivals and with a place in the final 8 of Champions League. The Tottenham manager thus insisted that Tottenham’s next three games until the international break are extremely crucial.
Speaking to Football.London, the Argentine said, “Of course. All can be very good or very bad in football in a few days, the perception can change quickly. One result can put you in your best emotion or drop you in a very difficult situation.
“We know very well that the balance is the most important. We have ahead two very important games. First tomorrow Arsenal, then Champions League and then finish with Southampton on Saturday. After two defeats we know it’s so important tomorrow.
“The most important thing first it’s to enjoy the game and try to be focused and play with freedom. Our position is fantastic.”
