Some Spurs fans are left to think ‘what if’ following Liverpool’s title triumph

Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Manchester City on Thursday served as a confirmation that the Premier League title has headed to Anfield.

While everybody has known that this moment has been coming for a while, the fact that the Reds managed to seal first place with a record-breaking seven games to spare shows how utterly dominant they have been this season.

Some Spurs fans on social media believe that it could have easily been Tottenham who had been lifting the Premier League trophy instead of Liverpool had the North Londoners done things differently over the last couple of years.

They noted the similar trajectories of Spurs under Mauricio Pochettino and Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp and felt that it was the investment of funds into the first-team squad or a lack thereof, that proved the difference between the two clubs.

Some fans blamed Daniel Levy for failing to invest on players as well as for sacking Mauricio Pochettino, and suggested that those decisions were the key as to why the Lilywhites have fallen so far behind the champions.

I too am quite envious of what Liverpool have achieved over the last couple of years. However, it is not as simple as saying we would have done the same had there been more investment into the squad.

It is worth remembering that we spent fairly big last summer after being defeated in the CL final, just as Liverpool did after being runners up during the 2017/18 season.

Despite the huge money we’ve spent on the stadium, our net spend has been pretty similar to Liverpool’s over the last five years. So it is not as simple as putting our failures down to a lack of transfer spending

I think there was also a mentality difference with Pochettino always trying to make us out to be the underdogs and suggesting that we are not title challengers. Klopp, on the other hand, embraced the challenge of guiding Liverpool to their first title in over 30 years.
