With just a few games left to go until the end of the season, Tottenham still have a lot to play for as they find themselves in the semifinals of the Champions League, and with a fight on their hands to finish in the top 4.
The race for the two remaining top four spots seems like it is likely to go down to the last game of the season with just three points separating Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United in the table at the moment.
Spurs fell to a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday but thankfully Tottenham’s rivals failed to capitalise on Spurs’ defeat as both Arsenal and Man Utd suffered losses against Crystal Palace and Everton on Sunday respectively.
Tottenham full-back Ben Davies, who played the full 90 minutes against City, felt that the only difference between Spurs’ performance last Wednesday and their performance on Saturday, was the fact that they didn’t take their chances in the latter.
Speaking to the club’ official website, the Welshman said: “It’s always hard to see any positives straight after a defeat.
“It was tough, they had a lot of the ball and we knew we had to try and take our chances if they came.
“We certainly created the chances but unfortunately we didn’t take them this time. That’s the difference between this game and Wednesday night, we were a bit more clinical.”
The 25-year-old, however, insisted that the team has set themselves the target of trying to win all four of their remaining Premier League fixtures until the end of the season.
He added: “So it’s never easy to reflect but look, it’s about kicking on and trying to win every game between now and the end of the season. That’s the target and it starts against Brighton on Tuesday.
“It will be tough, they are fighting for everything and they will go the full 90 minutes to try to get something out of the game. We have to be ready. We’ve played well at the new stadium so far and we need to keep that momentum going for the rest of the season.”
