Spurs begin their demise

Less than a week ago, Tottenham Hotspur were top of the Premier League table and loving life.

Now, two games later their title challenge may all but be over. 

While that may be an exaggeration, the significance of the two losses means their journey to winning a maiden Premier League title may have to wait another year. 

The London side suffered a devastating loss to Chelsea on Monday and in their attempts to bounce back, they took on Wolves and scored early, immediately feeling that loss was behind them. 

But two late goals from Pablo Sarabia and Mario Lemina meant Spurs has now lost twice in the same week. 

Ange Postecoglu’s side may fall to fourth on the table on Sunday if Liverpool claim all three points against Brentford. 


With injuries to James Maddison and Mickey van der Ven, the morale in the Spurs camp won’t be high. 

However, the best way to overcome defeat is with victory and they will hope to do that next week against an in-form Aston Vila. 

In the 5 pm kickoffs, Arsenal beat Burney 3-1 after a somewhat lacklustre performance and midfielder Fabio Vieira being sent off as the game came to a close. 

Manchester United also returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Luton Town, courtesy of a Victor Lindelof goal. 

After the highs of beating Arsenal last time out, Newcastle were surprised by Bournemouth, losing 2-0 on Saturday night. 

All eyes will turn to Sunday evening as Manchester City hosts Chelsea at 6.30 pm with Pep Guardiola looking for his side to clear the top of the table.
