Next five games after Manchester United comeback

This was meant to be a season of ‘kicking on’ for Tottenham after Antonio Conte had guided them to an impressive top four berth in 2021/22.

Some backed them to compete with Man City for the Premier League title, but the Lilywhites are instead battling with the likes of Brighton and Aston Villa for a spot in Europe next season.

Daniel Levy has tried his utmost to bring silverware to N17 by appointing two of the most successful managers of our time, but both have departed with a trail of despair and toxicity in their wake. Oh, and the trophies haven’t arrived either.

At least after being embarrassed by Newcastle at the weekend, they showed some stomach to come back from two goals down against Manchester United on Thursday night to rescue a draw.

But, overall, a great reset is required in north London, with every single Spurs supporter desperate to escape the miserable clutches of 2022/23. The summer can’t arrive soon enough.

Here’s what their schedule looks like to close out the season.

After feeling the wrath of the Toon Army and a rampant Newcastle last weekend, Tottenham visit a similarly hostile atmosphere on Sunday as they take on Liverpool at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp, too, is keen to draw a line under this season and oversee a quick rebuild in Merseyside, but they certainly have a better chance than Spurs of enjoying a prosperous end to the campaign.

Ryan Mason is back in the home dugout the following Saturday as Spurs host a Crystal Palace side whose momentum was recently stifled at Wolves.

Roy Hodgson has worked his magic in south London since being appointed interim boss, and the Eagles have all but secured their status as a Premier League outfit for next season.

Palace haven’t won away at Spurs in the Premier League since 1997.

Unai Emery’s Villa are one of several teams that will fancy their chances of usurping Spurs before the season’s up.

Their blistering run of form under the former Arsenal boss has seen the Villans emerge as an outsider contender for a top-four spot. A Europa League berth is more likely, which Emery certainly won’t mind.

An early Saturday kick-off means supporters can get their misery out of the way when Ivan Toney inevitably scores a penalty in the second half to seal a 1-0 win for the Bees.

This is Tottenham’s final home game of the season and, who knows, perhaps it’ll be Harry Kane’s last in a Spurs shirt.

It might actually be a pretty exciting final day with Tottenham taking on a Leeds side that may well be fighting for their lives.

Javi Gracia’s side are one of several teams involved in the relegation dogfight, while Spurs, at best, will be playing for a Europa Conference League berth next season. Take it or leave it.
