Why Antonio Conte’s Tottenham project hinges on win at Liverpool

Tottenham’s top-four destiny is in their own hands heading into their final four games of the season.

If they win each of their remaining matches, they will definitely be playing Champions League football next year (this is little bit of a broad statement due to the ongoing nonsense occurring on and off the pitch at Chelsea).

Plenty of neutrals have pointed to next Thursday’s rescheduled north London derby at home to Arsenal as the key fixture down the stretch, but Spurs could head into it five points behind their nearest and dearest rivals.

Saturday night’s trip to Liverpool holds the true key to Tottenham’s charge, and what happens at Anfield could determine the future of Antonio Conte.

Defeat or even a draw would mean that it would require a collapse from Arsenal in order for Spurs to usurp them in the table, even if the Lilywhites were to beat the Gunners next week.
