On Monday, Arsenal recorded a 2-0 win over Newcastle to move into third place.
With 63 points, they’re now two points ahead of Tottenham.
While Arsenal boss wants consistency from his side, Spurs have been lacking consistency. And this may just cost them a place in the top four.
Anfield was always going to be a difficult arena to play in. Liverpool had not lost there in over 35 games. However, Tottenham had their fair share of chances but failed to convert. This has left Pochettino frustrated.
Tottenham will launch their new stadium this week against Crystal Palace. There’s plenty to be excited about.
However, there’s also a lot to be worried about. Fans will be looking precariously at their side’s position on the log table.
Will they launch their new stadium with a win over Crystal Palace or will the struggle continue?

With Arsenal now in third, Spurs have dropped down to fourth on the table. If the league were to end today, Tottenham will qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League. But there are still six games to be played before the season is over.
Tottenham and Manchester United have the same number of points (61). Chelsea, in sixth, have 60 points.
A few weeks ago, Tottenham looked sure to finish in the top four. The third position on the table looked like theirs… until they experienced a dip in form.
Suffering four losses in their last five PL games has badly hurt Tottenham’s ambition of a top-four finish this season.
To put things in context, let’s compare the form of all four teams vying for a top-four finish:
- Arsenal: Last 5 league games => W4, D1, L0
- Tottenham: Last 5 league games => W0, D1, L4
- Manchester United: Last 5 league games => W3, D1, L1
- Chelsea: Last 5 league games => W3, D1, L1
It’s not hard to see that Tottenham have slacked in recent games. While they have slowed down, the other contenders have improved on their form.
The season doesn’t end until May. As such, it’s too early to make any calls.
However, Tottenham, having picked only 13 points from their last 30 in the league are at a huge risk of missing out on the top four.

This is good news for every Arsenal fan out there. Some are already making plans to celebrate St. Totteringham’s Day. Manchester United and Chelsea all look set to take advantage of Tottenham’s misery and kick them out of the top four.
It’s Tottenham against a red-hot Arsenal, the raging Red Devils and the Sarri’s Blues. Can they survive and qualify for Europe next season? Join the conversation by dropping your comments. We’d love to hear from you.
