It was a good weekend of fixtures for Tottenham Hotspur as they extended their grip on the top four with a 4-0 win over Huddersfield.

A goal from Wanyama and a hat trick from Lucas Moura sealed all three points and some extra goal difference for the Lilywhites on Saturday lunchtime.

Unfortunately, Man United escaped dropping points in the late kick off after Paul Pogba scored two penalties to narrowly defeat West Ham.

However, good news was yet to come, as Chelsea lost to Liverpool on Super Sunday by two goals to nil.

This prevented the Blues from leapfrogging Tottenham in the table, and they now sit one point behind Spurs, despite having played a game extra.

Arsenal have yet to play this weekend, but have a tough away fixture against Watford to navigate tonight.

Spurs currently sit in third on 67 points, with Chelsea on 66, United on 64, and Arsenal on 63.

If Spurs managed to win their game in hand on Chelsea, they must be confident of securing Champions League next season, especially with three home games still remaining.
