Tottenham failed to get their top four challenge back on track, with a dour 0-0 draw against Burnley on Sunday lunchtime.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side trail fourth placed Manchester City by eight points, and look set to rival Liverpool for that fifth spot – and Europa League qualification.
It should still go down as a season of progression under the Argentine however.
Harry Kane has established himself as one of the most exciting young talents in Europe, with the forward having scored 29 goals in all competitions this season.
Christian Eriksen has also proved himself to be a quality playmaker, and for as long as Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen remain at the club, Spurs will have the spine of a very decent side.
Let’s hope the summer spending is good, and not in the same style as it was when some of these shockers were brought to White Hart Lane in the past.
