It looked like it was all doom and gloom at Tottenham after the side’s 3-1 defeat away at Sheffield United aat the start of the month.
However, four wins and a draw in their five matches since then has brought somewhat of a glint of positivity feeling back to Spurs and left Jose Mourinho’s men with a chance of qualifying for the Europa League.
The Spurs boss has admitted that he is keen to qualify for the competition and win it for the third time in his career (Football.London).
Tottenham currently sit seventh in the Premier League table, a position that will be enough to see them qualify for the Europa League, unless Arsenal win the FA Cup, in which case the Gunners will join the 5th and 6th placed side in next season’s competition (talkSPORT).
To guarantee themselves of sixth place and a place in the Europa League, Tottenham would have to better Wolves’ result against Chelsea, when they travel to Selhurst Park for the final game of the season (The Athletic’s Jack Pitt-Brooke).
Since Spurs have the superior goal difference, either a Tottenham victory and a Wolves draw or a Tottenham draw and a Wolves defeat will see the Lilywhites finish above Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
In other words, Chelsea either have to get a favourable result against Wolves in their final Premier League game of the season or beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final, to give Spurs the best chance of being in next season’s Europa League draw.
If Chelsea lose both matches, Spurs will miss out on the Europa League irrespective of their result against Palace.
Spurs Web Opinion
We have done Chelsea’s Champions League hopes a big favour by beating Leicester City last Sunday and one would hope that they repay us by beating Arsenal in the final. Irrespective of whether or not we have sealed Europa League qualification by then, Spurs fans will be desperate for the Blues to turn the Gunners over at Wembley.
