Why Tottenham Are The Favourites To Win The Premier League

Published

White Hart Lane

Just a few more games remain for this season of the Premier League to end and it seems that it is a straight up battle between Tottenham and Leicester for the title. Tottenham might be second in the league table, being five points behind high flying Leicester but Tottenham could well make up the gap on the Foxes with just seven more games remaining in the Premier League table.

Tottenham do have a bit of an issue when it comes to central defenders with their best defender Jan Vertonghen being out till April but not having to play any Europa League games should reduce the pressure on the likes of Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer.

The team from the Lane are certainly in a better position to take on Leicester than Arsenal also and they would be happy to see Harry Kane back in goal scoring form as he could be vital to the side as they try to wrestle the lead from Leicester.

The goals seem to have dried up for Jamie Vardy and they are now having to look at other sources for the important goals, which are not coming in as easily as they did at the start of the season. Tottenham have a number of goal scorers but obviously Kane being fit and fine till the end of the season is one reason why they could actually overhaul Leicester.

Fixtures playing a huge role

While Leicester have been incredible this season, there is this issue of playing some really tough teams at the latter stage of the league campaign. The last three games for Leicester are Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea.

United and Chelsea could still be fighting for the European places come the end of the season, especially Manchester United, who are just a point behind their city rivals, Manchester City for the fourth spot.

Chelsea on the other hand have been exceptional in the Premier League under Guus Hiddink and the Dutch manager would want to sign off his second stint as the interim manager in style.

Tottenham don’t have it all easy also but they face Chelsea away and Liverpool away, their toughest fixtures in the run up for the title race. They do also face Manchester United at White Hart Lane, which could be the fixture that decides if they are still in with a chance of winning it all.

Mauricio Pochettino does have a tough task on his hands but he will ensure his team are ready for it. The fact that this international break came now could be good news for Tottenham as they can now focus on the job at hand.

That isn’t to say that Leicester will not be doing that but Pochettino does seem to have the hunger in his eyes to achieve something with Spurs and the law of averages does state that Leicester have to drop points at some part of the season.

This is Tottenham’s great chance and a good run till the end of the season could see a lot of celebrations at the Lane.
