Tottenham’s surge up the table has left them with the possibility of going third tonight if they beat Aston Villa by a sufficient enough score line to take them above Newcastle.
However, with teams such as Liverpool and Arsenal starting to find form, assistant Joe Jordan has stated that Spurs need to keep on winning games such as these if they are to stand a chance of regaining a Champions League slot.
“We’ve done very well after the first couple of matches,” said Jordan.
“Fulham was a tough place to go where we’ve struggled in the past, but we came away with three points two weeks ago.
“That’s an indication that we have made progress. Let’s hope it continues.”
Joe carried on to claim that Villa will provide tough opposition this evening.
“It is a tough game for us, they have a lot of pace up front,” he added.
“They are very quick on the counter attack so we will have to be very conscious of that.”
Spurs’ challenge for top four places was undone by their failure to win games such as these last season and let’s hope that the prospect of going third tonight doesn’t weight too heavily on the players’ minds.
