After an upturn in form under Jose Mourinho, Spurs are now just a point off the top-four, a feat that seemed rather unrealistic earlier this season when Mauricio Pochettino was at the helm.
The team keeping the Lilywhites out of the top-four is their upcoming opponent, Chelsea.
But Spurs probably couldn’t ask for a better time to play the Blues.
Frank Lampard’s side are winless in four league outings, and have a huge Champions League tie against German powerhouse Bayern Munich next week. Chelsea also look set to be without key midfielder N’Golo Kante for the clash at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho on Moussa Sissoko
Ahead of what could be a season-defining tie, Jose Mourinho held his pre-Chelsea press conference on Friday.
During the presser, Mourinho spoke about Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
The Frenchman has been sidelined for the majority of 2020 due to injury.
But, when speaking about Sissoko on Friday, the Portuguese tactician claimed that the 30-year-old could be back with Spurs by the end of March:
“I think Moussa will give us some matches this season.
“He went outside, started a little bit and next week he will have a different phase of his recovery.
“I’m optimistic, but realistic about his situation. I would expect Moussa to be playing a few weeks of football with us. In normal conditions, we are going to have him back by the end of March, beginning of April.” As quoted by Tottenham’s official website.
