Tottenham Hotspur started this season without a stadium, without any new players, and in many people’s minds, without a chance of the top four, yet alone the title.
However, after their best ever start to a Premier League season, Spurs now find themselves well in with a chance at the trophy.
Tottenham are the last in a three horse race for the Prem this season, six points below League leaders Liverpool.
Spurs are also in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup, the knock outs of the Champions League, and the fourth round of the FA Cup.
It has been a fantastic season for the Lilywhites so far, but they will be looking to kick on a collect a piece of silverware to show for their efforts.
The Premier League would be the ultimate crowning glory for a fantastic five year project under Pochettino, and just past the half way point, they are in with a shot.
He had this to say on Tottenham’s title charge (Football London): “It’s going to be always difficult to win the points in the Premier League, every game is tough. Of course our challenge is to be higher and at the top of the table. I know very well that to be consistent is the most important thing if you want to win the title. We were very good in the last three, four years being consistent in a long competition like the Premier League, because we finished first season fifth, third, second, third and we are third again now after half-time in the season.
“I think we find the way to compete in a very good way in a long competition. It’s true that maybe we struggle, we arrive to a league cup, in a semi-final or final, and compete but it wasn’t enough in the way we competed for a title, we were so close. Now we’re in another semi-final and four competitions. I think we are more mature. Of course in the Premier League if you want to be involved in the race you need to be consistent. We were consistent but we were still one step away, against Chelsea, Manchester City or Leicester.”
