Tottenham fans’ dreams of becoming English champions for the first time since 1961 hang in the balance, with a win over Manchester United on Sunday a pre-requisite if it is to become a reality.
A 1-1 draw against Liverpool last time out was not a bad result for Mauricio Pochettino’s men but it allowed Leicester to stretch their advantage at the top to seven points.
With only six games remaining, there is little room for error and three points is the only option for the North Londoners this weekend.
Spurs opened this memorable campaign at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture and deserved a lot more than the 1-0 defeat they recorded due to a Kyle Walker own goal.
Since then the side have been fearless, with Pochettino’s young side impressing on a weekly basis and proving very worthy title hopefuls.
United possess some dangerous players but should not pose a daunting opponent for a Tottenham side that has played with passion, bravery and application this term.
Harry Kane has been in scintillating form of late and was on the mark again at Anfield last time out, netting with a superb finish.
The England international is the division’s top goalscorer in 2015-16 with a remarkable 22 strikes and will be confident of adding to his tally at White Hart Lane on Sunday. Back Kane to score at any time for odds of 2.28.
Dele Alli missed an excellent chance to steal all three points for Spurs against Liverpool, but the teenage midfielder has been a revelation this season.
The youngster is full of drive and motivation, with every likelihood that he could make amends against United and hit the back of the net.
Leicester travel to take on Sunderland immediately before Tottenham’s clash and as such the deficit could be reduced to four points by the end of the weekend.
Pochettino and his side should be proud of their efforts this season, with another excellent opportunity for Spurs to show just how good they are on Sunday.
