When we saw off Chelsea in a 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge a couple of weeks ago, it really felt as though the spot in the top four which we have been in pursuit of during much of the season had finally been snapped up.
However, things have somehow become more nervy heading into the final week of the campaign and perhaps it did not have to be this way.
Chelsea, who looked almost dead and buried, have put together a run which has put the pressure back on Tottenham and Liverpool unexpectedly.
After recent slip ups here and there, Spurs went into the trip to West Brom without much room for error but a defensive collapse in injury time saw us concede the winning goal to a team destined for relegation this season.
Just over 24 hours later, it was Chelsea’s turn to take advantage and they did just that with a hard-fought 1-0 win over a Liverpool side who seem to be worried about nothing else but Champions League glory…and you cannot blame them.
But with Antonio Conte’s side now within touching distance of us in the Premier League table, some Spurs fans have not held back from questioning Pochettino.
Here’s a selection of the reactions on Twitter:
Unfortunately @LFC have been absolutely appalling today and that means it’ll be a nervy end to the season for @SpursOfficial. Should have had top 4 in the bag after winning at the Bridge but the season has really dropped off ?⚽️

Spurs and Liverpool really taking it to the wire to prove who are bigger bottlers.

I have no trust in Pochettino. Not anymore.

The turning point this season was Poch changing a winning team to give Kane a run at the Golden Boot. Poor management that. Oh yeah & where are all those fans who mocked those of us that said top 4 wasn't a gimme after the City game? Possibly 4 points still needed. ??

Pochettino will be on very thin ice if we don’t get CL. After 4 years he clearly wont have changed our mentality. The absolute acid test if we are ? bottlers or not ?

Pochettino is a good coach. Could be at a bigger club than us.
Problem is, he simply doesnt have the squad to endure his demands of levels for a whole season.
We either increase the quality of squad to be able to confidently rotate, or stay in limbo.
Over to you ENIC
