What a strange weekend of football it was for Tottenham Hotspur, as fans tasted the lows and the highs of Premier League life.
Spurs started off the weekend of football by blowing a clear opportunity to secure top four football for next season while hanging onto their third place for the time being.
However, despite dominating the match against Bournemouth, and having numerous clear goal-scoring chances through Alli and Moura, Spurs somehow shot themselves in the foot.
After Heung Min Son and Juan Foyth were both given their marching orders either side of half time, a nine-man Spurs was left to fight for a draw.
Unfortunately, Nathan Ake broke Tottenham hearts with an injury-time headed winner, but that only delayed Spurs celebrations by a day.
Manchester United and Arsenal both fell to 1-1 draws on Sunday, leaving the former out of the top four race, and the latter needing an eight-goal swing to overtake Spurs on the final day.
In order to mathematically secure top four, the easiest method for Spurs would be to pick up at least a point, or a win if they harbour hopes of overtaking Chelsea once more.
If Tottenham lose to Everton, they must ensure to keep the goals conceded to a minimum, as they currently have a superior goal difference to Arsenal by eight points.
As long as Arsenal don’t go on a goal-scoring flurry, and Spurs don’t concede a barrage of goals, Champions League football will be coming to the new stadium next year again.
