Tottenham completed a regulation 2-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday, and further consolidated their position in the Premier League’s top 4, where they are now 5 points clear of 5th placed Chelsea, who have a game in hand (today), which just so happens to be at the Etihad, away to Manchester City.
Paddy Power now make Mauricio Pochettino’s men just 1/5 to finish in the Top 4, and take their place in next season’s Champions League.
Spurs’ goal difference is at +31, with Chelsea’s at +25, with the possibility that Chelsea could fall further behind Spurs’s goal difference if they get a good beating off City later today. At this stage of the season, that is virtually an extra point for Spurs.
All is currently looking good for Tottenham. They are in the midst of a remarkable unbeaten run, now 17 matches in all competitions, and if Pochettino needed a further boost, he got one yesterday with the exceptional form and two goals from Korean, Son Heung-Min, showing Spurs can still pick up points without Harry Kane goals.
In further Top 4 Finish Betting, Paddy Power have Manchester United at 1/14, Liverpool at 1/12, Chelsea at 6/4, and Arsenal are 33/1.
