Tottenham Hotspur’s potential Premier League title challenge in the campaign of 2018/19 has stepped up a gear as we registered eleven goals in our last two matches and a few more people are now looking at us a little more closely.
Having moved into second place in the top flight table, we’ve edged above Manchester City and Chelsea, and are only shy of Liverpool by six points and there’s plenty of football left to be played in the campaign.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of this weekend’s clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers, questions about silverware came up as Poch met with the press and in his usual way of playing expectations down, he did admit that ultimately it would come down to our ‘consistency’ in the second half of the season, so really it’s in our hands.
“Now I am more relaxed. We are in a very good position. In a position that I think the team deserves to be but another thing is to be the real contender at the end of the season. We need to be consistent during the whole of the season. We need to show ourself, to show everyone we can be a real contender by being consistent during the whole season. We are there because we have the belief, because we are working hard and of course we have the quality. It is hard to be in the position that we are in. Still we are a question mark. We will see if we are capable during the whole season to be consistent like in the first half of the season. Then we can talk that we can fight for big things.”
Poch rightly praised the spirit in the camp as a real positive and also quite cleverly pointed out we’re only a bad result away from the usual doubters coming back in force.
They’ll be ups and downs in the New Year, we just have to see how it goes.
