Very important point for Tottenham.

Posted on May 09, 2013 by Scraggs

Following a good performance last night against Chelsea the race for Champions League football is still out of Tottenham’s hands and they must rely on others to assist them in their pursuit. The point earned has made a huge difference and could still prove crucial as it is no longer a defeat for Arsenal that is hoped for but a more realistic draw. Simply because of the superior goal difference of both Arsenal and Chelsea it is clear that Tottenham must accrue more points if they are to succeed.

Before the Sigurdsson equaliser Tottenham were lying 2 points behind Arsenal and needing them to lose one of their two remaining fixtures to stand any chance of overhauling them and as those two fixtures include Wigan and Newcastle, both fighting to save their season and position in the Premiership, based on current form a defeat is a most unlikely outcome but a draw particularly away to Newcastle is a realistic possibility.

Unfortunately the point for Chelsea means that they only need one more win to ensure a top four finish, is it feasible that Chelsea might not beat either Villa away or Everton at home? unlikely but stranger things have happened, Villa are on a roll and could be a very dangerous opponent on their home patch and needing some sort of result to ensure safety from relegation. Everton have proved themselves a difficult team to overcome home or away and have drawn at Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham recently, the fixture also looks likely to be the last for David Moyes as the Everton manager.

Obviously with the hope that somebody will help Tottenham by taking points from the teams above them it is also essential that they do their own job by winning both remaining matches and that will be no easy task, Stoke away is a potential nightmare and the team will have to battle and produce their best to beat them, then comes Sunderland a team in real danger and who will almost certainly be in need of some sort of result to stay up.

It is no longer in our hands but that point might yet prove crucial before the season is out, it certainly ramps up the pressure on Arsenal to actually win both of their remaining fixtures.
