Before the turn on the New Year, Tottenham Hotspur were genuine title contenders. Fast forward to April, and they are now fifth in the standings.
It must surely be heartbreaking for Tottenham's supporters to be on the verge of such a massive collapse. They must surely be asking what went wrong.
They had quite an easy set-list at the end, and several predicted that Spurs should comfortably place in the top four. However, only a lone win in the last nine matches have hit Spurs hard.
Perhaps the managerial position of England being vacated hurt Spurs more than it did England. With all the drama surrounding Harry Redknapp's departure, it must have surely brought distress into the dressing room.
What's worse for Tottenham is the likely exodus that will follow should Tottenham fail to secure a Champions League spot. Luka Modric might be pried away and Gareth Bale might leave elsewhere.
However, Tottenham face Blackburn, Bolton, Aston Villa and Fulham in their last four matches, and emphatic wins against these sides might allow them to regain their rightful standings.
Their nearest rivals, Newcastle and Chelsea, are yet to face each other, and any result would favor Spurs. Newcastle also have to face Manchester City, who will be determined to grind out a result against them, while Chelsea might be distracted by the Champions League and also have to face Liverpool (an opposition that they always struggle with).
