Tottenham Hotspur have fought against the odds to haul themselves into the title race this season.

The North London club currently sit between Liverpool and Manchester City in the table, the two clubs heavily tipped to be this year’s favourites.

Spurs came into the campaign without a stadium, and as the first Premier League side ever to not make a single summer signing.

However, Tottenham have gone on to enjoy their greatest ever start to a season, while also making the final 16 of the Champions League, as well as the Carabao Cup semi-final.

Spurs are six points behind Liverpool, and one point ahead of City, but will look to strengthen their position over the next two games.

Liverpool face Arsenal then City as their next two fixtures, with Spurs playing Wolves and Cardiff, so things could get interesting this time next week.

However, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has ruled Tottenham and his side out of the title running.

The phrase ‘speak for yourself’ springs to mind.

He said (Evening Standard): “You know very well my opinion. As I said from the beginning of the season there are two teams a step above, Liverpool and Manchester City.

“Now there is a little gap, I think City will be able to recover the gap, the title is fighting between City and Liverpool.”

  1. Can’t wait till Hazard jumps ship and Chelsea FC are exposed for the average football club that they currently are. This tool will also follow all Chelsea managers and get fired into his second season.

  2. You can abuse Sarri as much as you want, but he’s right – we’ve already been beaten at home by City and Liverpool (not to mention Arsenal and Watford away), and a winning streak mid-season isn’t what’s needed to win titles, it’s consistency over the whole season, and we’ve not managed that for sixty years, whoever’s been in charge. If we’re still second with two or three games to go, I might change my opinion, but we’re about to lose to Wolves, and that’s not title form!
