Limping through March - with one exception

At midnight on March 31st, Spurs stood in third place in the Premier League, but already as I write (on 2nd April) we have been usurped by our deadly rivals from the wrong end of the Seven Sisters Road. By tomorrow we might be down to fifth place after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United play Wolves tonight. Wolves knocked United out of the FA Cup in the quarter-final but the attention of Nuno Esperito Santo's side might be focused upon their forthcoming semi-final against Watford. Whatever happens tonight (and Wolves won) Spurs know they have a dogfight now to hold onto another top four place and ensure Champions League football in their new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium which officially opens tomorrow with a game against Crystal Palace.

We had to spend three weeks of last month with no domestic football, due to our non-involvement in the FA Cup that seems to mean more to the likes of Crystal Palace (who knocked us out) and Brighton, who we should have been playing this weekend. We will now play the "Seagulls" towards the end of a busy month to come. We have 7 games which include three against Manchester City including the Champions League quarter-final. That could be 8 games if we manage to beat City!

March started with what was our last Premier League game at Wembley against Arsenal in front of a massive 81,000 crowd. Equality was maintained and pride preserved by Hugo Lloris's late penalty save from Aubameyang. It wasn't a good penalty, but Hugo went the right way and Jan Vertonghen came the rescue when Aubameyang tried to follow up. That game was our one and only drawn Premier league game so far this season.

Hugo Lloris's error at the end of the Liverpool game is easily remembered, but people would do well to think of Hugo's heroic performance in our Champions League win at Dortmund, where we had our one (glorious) win of the month to ensure another quarter-final in the Blue Riband Club event. Hugo was our man of the match in Germany and only marginally second to Sissoko, who was voted man of the match against Arsenal.

Defeat to a struggling Southampton side was hard to take, and at Anfield on the last day of the month we suffered a fourth consecutive away defeat in the Premier League. In fact we have lost 6 of our last 7 away games in all competitions, with the last away win only achieved at the very death at Craven Cottage in January. Our away form this season until then had generally been superb, and this current run is our worst away under Pochettino. Our manager had to spend the Southampton and Liverpool games in the stands as a result of a two-game ban from the bench imposed after his post-Burnley contretemps with Mike Dean.

We've only managed to score one goal in each of our 4 games this month, and three of those have come from Harry Kane, who went to Buckingham Palace last week to be presented wwith his MBE by Prince William. Lucas Moura scored the other goal at Anfield.

Jan Vertonghen has once again been Mr Consistency and wins our player of the month vote for the second successive time. If you discount Paulo Gazzaniga who leads the accumulative vote for his outstanding performances in the 10 games he has played this season, Jan Vertonghen is well placed for another Player of the Season vote. Toby Alderweireld marginally leads his central defence partner, and Harry Kane is not far behind.

Let's hope that when we review April, we still have a chance of Champions League football next season, and who knows, maybe we will still be in this year's competition!
