The race for fourth is looking increasingly like a race for fifth as Liverpool beat Newcastle on Sunday to go ahead of Spurs on goal difference.
Those who are looking to the battle for fifth place will see this month’s clash between the two sides as the pivotal point in this fight, but with Spurs’ game in hand and two home games coming up, it shouldn’t come down to that.
Aside from Tottenham, Liverpool are away to Fulham and Aston Villa while Tottenham also have Man City away and Blackpool and Birmingham at home. Liverpool’s games are ‘winnable’ but bookmakers still have Spurs as favourites and that’s just about right.
The key is going to be in winning our two homes games and if we do that then fifth place should be secure. However, many will argue that winning home games against sides in the bottom half should have been the key to this whole Spurs season.
