What Should Tottenham Do Now, After The Point Against Liverpool?

A hard fought draw was all that Tottenham could muster at Anfield. Liverpool did have the better of the exchanges in the first half but Tottenham came back strongly to get a deserved point at a stadium which doesn’t have the best of memories for the club.

Spurs had to move up a gear in the second half and that performance will surely please Mauricio Pochettino in the run up to the Premier League title. Speaking to the BBC, the Argentine was upbeat about the performance.

“It was difficult to come here and try and win the three points but we were calm and believe in our quality.

“We feel disappointed but we still need belief and to be ready for the next game.”

Spurs, however were dealt a blow as Leicester kept up their charge for the title and got all three points against Southampton. The win for the Foxes meant that Tottenham are now seven points behind the leaders with only six games left for both teams.

Leicester just need 12 more points from their remaining six games to guarantee a Premier League title and that could well be achieved before the Foxes face any of the tough sides in their last three games.

Tottenham do have a chance of making a late dash for the title but they need to keep the pressure on Leicester. The Foxes have won five out of their last six games with a 1-0 score line and even against Southampton they were extremely lucky to get the win.

Ronald Koeman was livid that his team did not get two penalties but apart from that, they should have still had one goal in the game if not a point or more. This is exactly the kind of thing Tottenham will hope for, Leicester could slip up and the side from London should be ready to pounce on that.

Tottenham do not have any more distractions left, it is just the Premier League title and they should go all out for it. This is the best chance of winning the Premier League and well rubbing it into the Arsenal supporters faces.

The next game for Tottenham is the clash against Manchester United, a side that seems to have found its gear in the hunt for Champions League football. Manchester United have one of the tightest defences in the league and seem to be getting the results which have them in fifth place just a point behind Manchester City.

The Red Devils know that they need to match City’s result or better it regularly if they are to get into the top four but Tottenham are doing their bit as well and are set to have a tough fight against a team that just about defeated them at the start of the season.

Spurs have to take games one at a time, instead of trying to think about the second and third games in their fixture list. The more time they spend on studying their opponents and working ways to beat them, the better they would be in trying to close the gap on Leicester.

We have seen teams spectacularly implode in Premier League title races, Liverpool being the last team to do that as they messed up with just three games to do. Leicester could also do that, there are no guarantees in football and a calm and cool Tottenham side could be the ones to take advantage of it.

Spurs need to keep winning and that can only be done if they continue playing the way they have all season. No pressure, no burden, just eleven players having the time of their lives on the pitch. Come May, it could be thousands of Spurs supporters who celebrate wildly but that isn’t a surety yet.

The Premier League still has a lot of twists and turns and Spurs will hope to avoid all that as they look for silverware at the end of this season.
