Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premiership Season
for 2014-2015 - Match 28

Well placed for a tilt at top four

Thanks to these two consecutive wins, Spurs are well placed for a tilt at winning a place in the top four. Sunday's game at Old Trafford will be all-important, but after watching United last night losing at home to Arsenal, I am not filled with the trepidation that usually accompanies such trips.

United will have Jonny Evans and now Di Maria suspended, and the home crowd on their backs, I suspect, so why shouldn't we make history this week-end by winning a third consecutive game at "The theatre of dreams"?

Harry Kane was your man of the match for his performance in Saturday's win at QPR, whilst Hugo Lloris won the vote for the mid-week win over Swansea, no doubt clinched by his heroics late in the game. Between them, Kane and Lloris have dominated the man of the match vote, winning 32 of the 47 votes so far. One of them will win the player of the season vote, with Lloris in the lead at present.

Spurs are three points worse off than they were last season after 28 games, but no further apart from the top four, with the gap also three points. QPR replaced Norwich in our version of the season upon season like for like table, which calculates us as being seven points better off than last season in matches against the same opposition.

After Man United, our run-in also includes hosting Man City, and a trip to Southampton. The more challenging matches for our rivals for the top four (I am only including Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Southampton in this table) are as follows:-



Arsenal           Man Utd       

Liverpool (H)     Spurs (H)
Chelsea   (H)     Liverpool (A)
Man Utd   (A)     Man City (H)
                  Chelsea (A)
                  Arsenal (H)

Liverpool         Southampton

Man Utd (H)       Chelsea (A)
Arsenal (A)       Spurs (H)
Chelsea (A)       Man City(A)

Clearly points are going to be dropped by our closest rivals, and Spurs are likely to lose points. However, the facts indicate that we are in with a decent chance of finishing in a top four position.

A decent result on Sunday (and a draw would be okay) will ensure an exciting run-in!
