As Chelsea wobble, can Spurs surge to Premier League title?


Moving forward, the main challenges for Tottenham are managing the weight of expectations, putting together a good run in the Uefa Champions League and keeping hold of their best players.

Tottenham are arguably playing the most aesthetically pleasing football this term and this is shown in an impressive goal difference of +46 compared to leaders Chelsea's +38.

The result will either alleviate the pressure on Conte and his players or turn the screw even tighter. Last season, Chelsea had no pressure in 10th place and you play calm, you are happy. We are fighting for ourselves and to be there and play for the top four. His work rate is on another level, and since he has moved into a more attacking role his game has evolved. "Otherwise we must clap another team".

Son netted Tottenham's second goal to take his season tally to 19 and become the highest-scoring South Korean in a single European season since Cha Bum-kun at German club Bayer Leverkusen in 1985-86.

Plenty of eyebrows were raised at Jose Mourinho leaving Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic and Carrick on the bench, but just seven minutes into the game Jose had cause to smile, as he watched Ander Herrera play Marcus Rashford through, and the 19-year-old fired past Asmir Begovic to give United the lead.

Referring to the fact that the majority of the current squad were a part of the 2014/15 Premier League winning side, Begovic has told Chelsea's website that the team must focus on themselves rather than second-placed Tottenham.

Mourinho insisted he took no extra satisfaction from beating his old club. United, meanwhile, closed to within four points of fourth-place Manchester City, on whom they retain a game in hand and who welcome them to the Etihad Stadium a week on Thursday. Then there is a visit to Leicester City before a final-day trip to Hull City, who might need points to ward off relegation.

Leicester are very much down however - they were winning two nil against Crystal Palace but by the end suffered a draw.

"The first reason is because with Liverpool and Manchester City victories, if we don't win today goodbye Premier League".

The former Juventus coach said he was not anxious about the pressure mounting over the final six games, however.

Tottenham are certainly the form team going into the clash, having won eight matches in a row in all competitions and scored an average of three goals a game in that period. "They are feeling the possibility to write the history and it is important to know this", the Italian said.
