Fans react as Tottenham Hotspur seemingly limp over top four line

Tottenham Hotspur look like they will finish in the top four of the Premier League.

The race to finish in the top four appears to be at an end. Arsenal and Manchester United both played out disappointing draws against Brighton and Huddersfield respectively earlier today.

Those results mean United cannot catch Spurs whilst Arsenal would require an eight-goal swing in goal difference on the final day. Whilst Spurs do play an in-form Everton on the final day, it is hard to see such a scenario playing out.

Over the past few weeks, it has seemed like nobody wants to make the top four.

For Tottenham fans, the main priority now has to be Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second-leg against Ajax in Amsterdam.

Online, many football fans have been laughing at the way Tottenham appear to have crawled over the finish line into fourth.

Tottenham, often accused of being ‘Spursy’, have luckily been helped by the woeful form of the other teams in the top four race. But ultimately, they would deserve top four for the brilliant first half of the season. Considering the stadium drama, lack of signings and the number of players who went far at the World Cup in the summer, it has been a brilliant achievement from Mauricio Pochettino.

Despite the recent bad form at Spurs, by this time next week, they could have secured third in the Premier League and be in the Champions League final.

Wouldn’t that be an incredible answer to the critics…?
