Tottenham will go in search of their sixth straight Premier League victory when they welcome Watford to White Hart Lane this weekend, and there is no question that another three points are required if Pochettino’s side are to stand a chance of lifting the Premier League title this season.
Spurs’ title ambitions looked to be in tatters when they trailed into the final two minutes of their clash with Swansea City on Wednesday night, but the London side turned things around in the final moments to record a 3-1 win.
The capital outfit are now five points clear of third-place Liverpool with a game in hand, although they still trail league leaders Chelsea by seven points, and that looks to be a tough gap to breach with just eight games of the season left.
Spurs’ away form had been called into question in recent weeks, but they have beaten Burnley and Swansea on the road in their last two Premier League fixtures to move onto 65 points. They will be glad to return to White Hart Lane this weekend, however, due to their incredible home form.
Indeed, Pochettino’s side have won 13 and drawn two of their 15 home Premier League matches this season, scoring 35 times and conceding just eight. They have been almost untouchable on home soil, and the supporters will be expecting another victory this weekend as a busy April continues to tick on.
In terms of what is ahead for Spurs, they will welcome Bournemouth in their next Premier League fixture after this one, before the small matter of an FA Cup semi-final against title rivals Chelsea on April 22. They will then travel to Crystal Palace in the top flight, before ending the month at home to bitter rivals Arsenal.
Tottenham will be wary of what happened in the final weeks of last season – where second spot was ultimately snatched away – but they are well-placed to finish as runners-up this term. That would be another big step in the right direction as Pochettino looks to ultimately build a title-winning team.
