Mauricio Pochettino’s side brushed aside Tony Pulis’ West Brom side past weekend as they followed their victory over Chelsea in the last round with a bang. They have now stitched a 6 game winning streak in the Premier League and have slowly moved up the points table. They are currently in the 2nd place, 7 points off Chelsea at the top and the manager will hope that his side can compete for the title for the second year running. Though the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are all fighting for the crown, Pochettino’s side have slowly pushed everyone down and will only have to be consistent
Though the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are all fighting for the crown, Pochettino’s side have slowly pushed everyone down and will only have to be consistent until the end of the season to stand a shot at the silverware. Though not the favourites, the Spurs side are definitely an unsung contenders of the title and here are three reasons why:
Though not the strongest squads in Europe, Pochettino’s side have some decent players in their squad that can help them in crunch times. The likes of Erik Lamela, Kevin N’Koudou, Moussa Sissoko and Vincent Janssen are all top class players but have not been regulars in the first team – mainly due to the their recent form and injuries – although, they’ll get better with time. Eric Dier and Ben Davies have also found it hard to cement a place in the first team and with a bench this strong, the side is certainly well equipped for the title race. All they need is their fringe players to find some form.
