What can Tottenham expect from their final five matches of the season?

Tottenham remain in a battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League but will they get enough points from their final five matches to make it?

Tottenham have slipped from the fringes of the top two into a four-way battle for the two remaining spots in next season’s Champions League.

But they still hold the cards in that particular race and with the long-awaited move into their new stadium giving them some impetus, Mauricio Pochettino should fancy his side’s chances.

That said, what can they expect from their final five Premier League matches? We’ve taken a look…

Tottenham poured so much into their Champions League tussle with the champions that another league encounter so soon afterwards could well take its toll.

Pep Guardiola’s men know they cannot slip in pursuit of retaining their title and this is one where their superior squad depth and tactical variety may just win the day.

Chris Hughton’s side have been poor since the turn of the year – perhaps distracted by their run to the FA Cup semi-finals – and should pose few problems for Spurs on their own patch.

The move into the new stadium should really give Tottenham’s home form a lift and there’s no reason why that wouldn’t continue here.

The Hammers are always keen to make life tough for Spurs and will relish the opportunity to get all three points on their first visit to the new stadium.

But as a side safely in mid-table, they’re already on the beach somewhat and a narrow win for Spurs looks the most likely outcome – although it won’t be easy.

A trip to face the Cherries is never easy but they’re another side who have experienced a real drop off since the turn of the year.

Eddie Howe’s side are looking a little short on ideas of late and their desire to attack should leave space in behind for Spurs to exploit and win their final away match of the campaign.

Everton (H) – Win

Everton may only have the incentive of coming seventh in the Premier League to play for by this point, making them reasonable opponents to face in the last week of the season, if a win is needed to secure the top four.

It won’t be easy – Marco Silva has overseen strong recent improvement – but Spurs should fancy their chances of finishing the season with a flourish.
