Tottenham’s 6-2 win over Everton and Manchester City’s loss against Crystal Palace has turned the Premier League into a tight race once again.
Granted, Liverpool are still six points ahead of us but our performance against their Merseyside rivals will put fear into any team that faces us.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men were excellent in the final third and we have three easy fixtures lined up in the festive period.
Bournemouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers face us at Wembley before we travel to Cardiff. Spurs have more than enough quality to see off the trio and get nine points from the three games. That should push us up the table and we should cut the gap at the top after the next three fixtures.
Tough tests are ahead for Liverpool and Man City
Starting off with City, the shock loss to Crystal Palace proves that they aren’t at the same level as last season. The Cityzens were poor against Palace and their next two clashes are away to Leicester City and Southampton respectively.
The Foxes are always tough opposition and Jamie Vardy’s pace could be the undoing of the City defence. Southampton, under new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, got an important win over Arsenal recently and we cannot rule out the new manager bounce stinging City.
Pep Guardiola’s men are just two points ahead of us and we could overtake them even before they face Liverpool at the Etihad on January 3.
The Reds have been the best Premier League team this season, at least the table says so, but they have been a bit lucky.
The win over Everton, the penalty miss for City at Anfield and even some penalty calls have gone their way. They face Newcastle before playing Arsenal and Manchester City in the festive period. The games after the Newcastle fixture will not be easy under any circumstance, and I am certain they will drop points in the coming days.
Jurgen Klopp has created a formidable side but they won’t be able to give much rest to the likes of Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane.
Tottenham have options to give Harry Kane a break, and with Son Heung-min leaving for the Asian Cup in January, the South Korean might play in place of the Englishman. Mauricio Pochettino is performing miracles at Tottenham, and we also have the Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea coming up.
The priority for Spurs is to take one game at a time, and with three easy Premier League fixtures coming soon, there is more than a good chance for us to top the table. We were the ‘nearly’ men a few years ago and this team is basically the same group of players with more experience under their belts.
The onus is on us to beat all that stands before us and if we do that, we will win the Premier League.
