With 10 games left in the season, even the most optimistic Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern don’t believe they can catch the leaders, Chelsea.
The Lilywhites sit 10 points adrift and with Antonio Conte’s men looking unbeatable at present, our resident Tottenham fans in the Tavern are praying that their London rivals slip up somewhere.
However, as our landlord notes, there is a lot of good things happening at White Hart Lane and Mauricio Pochettino has managed to assemble a team that oozes potential and English potential at that.
Securing of a Champions League place will be paramount for this young Spurs side and although the Tottenham fans were left disappointed by their performance in Europe this season, they believe with a few more signings and the experience gained this season – they will be a force to be reckoned with in Europe next year.
Before that, our landlord states that Spurs cannot be complacent and starting with this a difficult game this against Burnley – Pochettino’s men must set a statement showing they mean business going into next season.
The last time these two sides met, the north London side came from a goal down to win 2-1 thanks to strikes from Dele Alli and Danny Rose.
Our landlord expects Pochettino’s men to have an easier ride if they pick this XI he has laid out.
