Tottenham Hotspur’s ambitions of winning the Premier league title this season took a serious hit as they were defeated by a motivated Burnley side 2-1 at the Turf Moor
Tottenham’s talisman Harry Kane marked his return for Spurs from injury after quite some time. And it didn’t take him long to get back into the groove again as he found the net. However, that wasn’t quite enough for Spurs to avoid defeat. The home side took the lead from Chris Wood’s strike in the 57th minute. However, their lead was short lived as Harry Kane levelled things up within the next 8 minutes. Ashley Barnes then delivered the knockout blow to Spurs on the 83rd minute and sealed all 3 points for the home side. It was a huge victory for Burnley in their battle against relegation. They jumped from the 16th spot to the 13th spot. Spurs, meanwhile, remained 3rd with 60 points and 5 points behind Liverpool and Manchester City. However, that gap could increase if Liverpool are able to find the victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow.
Irrespective of the defeat, Spurs have done brilliantly well this season to keep pace with Liverpool and Manchester
He’s obviously one of the best strikers in Europe right now.
“He might want to go and have a new experience to take his career to another level. At the same time, if he can win something fairly soon with Tottenham then I think they have the chance to keep him. But it’s going to be difficult.
“They have done so in the last couple of years, keeping hold of their players, we know they haven’t transferred new players and they haven’t bought any players at all this season. They keep maintaining a very high standard so that’s good. In modern football that is very rare.”
“I think they really need to make it happen, win something and they will be able to write the next part of their history by keeping Pochettino and carrying on developing the club. It might be difficult to keep the coach in the coming years, especially if they don’t win anything.”
Well, both Pochettino and Kane have been linked with moves away for Tottenham for the entirety of the season. And it does seem likely that at least one of them might leave if they remain trophyless this season.
