Tottenham Hotspur were fighting it out for the Premier League title this time last week, but fortunes can change fast in the Premier League.

Fast forward a week and Spurs may now have a fight on their hands to retain their Champions League spot for next season.

The Lilywhites endured back to back defeats against Chelsea and Burnley in the past week, dropping six points in the process.

Meanwhile, the likes of Arsenal, Man United, and Chelsea have been picking up points aplenty, gaining ground on Spurs game by game.

Arsenal now sit just four behind their North London rivals, and will have the chance to bringing that down to just the one point this weekend.

Spurs are on 60 points, with Arsenal on 56, Man United on 55, and Chelsea on 53.

It could be a nail biting end to the campaign for Tottenham fans, and Gary Neville certainly thinks they will be up against it.

He said (Sky Sports): “It can change so quickly. Last week, Tottenham were in the title race and now you’re looking at whether they will make the top four or not after a couple of bad defeats, so you can never feel like you can take your foot off the gas for a second.

“Arsenal are winning again now. Manchester United are on their heels and Chelsea are not far off so it could soon change, especially with the north London derby coming up.

“I still think Tottenham will make it, though, and with Arsenal vs Manchester United on March 10 at the Emirates, that could be huge in deciding the final outcome.”
