Tottenham never seem to do it the easy way.
Their win over Arsenal earlier in the month made them seem absolute certainties for a top four finish, with Andre Villas-Boas dead on course to bring Champions League football back in only his first season in charge for the Lilywhites.
However as we come towards the end of the month, their season has taken a worrying dip, with three consecutive defeats in all competitions, including two in the Premier League.
It means the gap between themselves and arch-rivals Arsenal now stands at just four points, whilst the Gunners have a game in hand.
It is sure to be an exciting finish in the battle for the top four, although Spurs fans can be forgiven for thinking it should be all but done and dusted by now.
Inconsistency has been the issue once again, and should they fall at the final hurdle, a look back at this list of 10 moments Tottenham would rather forget would do well to explain what exactly went wrong.
