Premier league postponed as difficult season continues for Spurs
Spurs entered the current campaign on the back of a fourth placed finish last season and a run to the Champions league final. This is why much was anticipated, with the side also moving into the new stadium. Despite this positive period for Spurs, it has continued to be a difficult season, with results not going the way of the London side to date. This includes being knocked out in the round of 16 in the Champions league, losing 4-0 on aggregate to German side RB Leipzig. Punters have already begun to look at the Bethard review on the latest offers for that tournament, with RB Leipzig provide popular in the outright markets.
It has been a similarly difficult season domestically for Spurs, as they currently sit down in eighth position and seven points out of the top four. This means that Spurs now have a huge task on their hands if they are to push back into the top four and the Champions league places by the end of the season. Spurs now have nine games remaining in the league and from 29 matches played, they have picked up 11 wins, eight draws and ten loses.
Spurs have also been in stuttering form in recent weeks, that has seen them fail to win any of their last six matches. This includes being knocked out of the Champions league and also exiting the FA Cup in the 5th round, when losing to Norwich City on penalties.
Tottenham now need to return to form, as the Premier league enters a period of postponement. This is due to the coronavirus, which is not only delaying the Premier league but sport around the world. The big question now is whether and when the current season will be finished, with the Premier league set to restart from the earliest on the 15th of April. However, with the continued issues arising, this date looks unlikely to see the return of football in the English top flight. We now must simply wait and hope that this doesn’t go on for a lengthy period of time.
When it returns, Tottenham will finish with a fairly promising run of fixtures to end the season. This will see them take on Manchester United, West Ham, Sheffield United, Everton, Bournemouth and Arsenal. This is a run that Tottenham will be hopeful of getting at least ten points, which can help them push back up the table. To finish the season, Tottenham also have matches in the Premier league against Newcastle, Leicester City and finally Crystal Palace. These are also matches that Tottenham will be expected to gain points from, with the aim for the season being to finish in the top four.
