The sad truth is that Tottenham have been dragged back into a race for the top four, a position they should never have found themselves in.
All the way through the campaign, Spurs had proved to be heads and shoulders above the pack battling for the last Champions League spot, but recent form now says otherwise.
Despite having a chance to close the gap between themselves and the League leaders to just two points a couple of weeks ago, Spurs are now way adrift and just a point above Arsenal.
It is painfully tight between the four teams chasing for third and fourth place in the League now, with Tottenham leading the way ever so slightly.
The Lilywhites are on 61 points, with Arsenal next on 60, Man United in fifth on 58 points, and Chelsea in sixth on 57.
However, Chelsea do have a game in hand on their rivals, meaning they could leapfrog Man United and join Arsenal on 60 points.
Either way, it is anyone’s game heading into the final eight games of the season, and it is a must for Tottenham to finish in the qualifying spots after the lead they once had.
Spurs are without a game for over 20 days now after their Crystal Palace match was cancelled, meaning the rest of the sides will have a chance to put points on the table and overtake Tottenham.
But who has the easier season run in? It actually doesn’t look bad for Spurs, apart from the two trips to Liverpool and Man City…
