After a two week break from Premiership action, Spurs now find themselves in the expected fifth Premiership position after Arsenal’s late win over Norwich on Saturday. Champions League qualification is now out of our hands and those who would like to see us back in the Europa League will be looking nervously at Everton who sit just three points behind us.
Every game is huge between now and the end of the campaign and that’s a fact acknowledged by our Belgian central defender Jan Vertonghen.
“We have to stay together and to go for that top four place in the Premier League,” said Jan on the club’s official website.
“We have a rest, we clear our heads and we come back against Manchester City.”
Jan also feels that the return of some key players will help our cause when we face the FA Cup finalists on Sunday.
“A lot of players could be coming back, important players and we only have big games now, City, Chelsea, all cup finals. We go for the highest place possible,” he added.
Those key players could include Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon and Younes Kaboul but will the extended break work in our favour, as it did before the Swansea match or is the campaign in freefall?
