Tottenham’s final five fixtures compared to Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United

Tottenham and Antonio Conte have had a tough week in their pursuit of a top four finish this season. After their loss to Brighton last week, the Spurs were unable to find a breakthrough away at Brentford and were held to a 0-0 draw.

That result, coupled with Arsenal’s win over Manchester United, means that the side have dropped down to fifth and will be hoping to respond in their final five matches. Discussing the draw after the game, Conte said: “I think that in the last two games we’ve struggled offensively because we’ve found two teams that are very good defensively.

“Without the ball these two teams defended very deep, with the whole team, with all their players. When you find this type of situation you need to create the space, also to have players to beat their man in one vs one, to create the superiority. “

The side now have a huge few matches left to secure fourth. With that said, here’s a look at how their remaining fixtures look compared to their rivals.

Leicester (H) – May 1

Next up for the Lilywhites is a home match against Leicester City. The Foxes have struggled this season compared to their previous campaigns, sitting in tenth with one win from their last five.

With little left to play for in the league, and a Europa Conference League semi-final to come, it could mean their focus is elsewhere.

Liverpool (A) – May 7

Potentially one of the toughest games remaining, Conte’s men will have to make the trip to Liverpool. The Reds are still in with a shout of winning the league title this season, having been on an incredible run of form.

Spurs do have some hope though, having been impressive in the reverse fixture back in December, ending in a 2-2 draw.

Arsenal (H) – May 12

While North London derbies are usually huge anyway, this one may be the biggest one in years. Bragging rights are up for grabs, but perhaps more importantly a top four finish could be decided with this game.

Burnley (H) – May 15

The final home game of the season comes against Burnley, who have been embroiled in a relegation battle all season. The Clarets have battled back so far, putting themselves within one point of safety.

Despite being down the bottom, the reverse fixture did end in a 1-0 Burnley win, and Conte will be keen for no repeat of that.

Norwich (A) – May 22

The Canaries have been rock bottom for the majority of the season and look almost certain to drop down to the second tier again.
