What Tottenham Hotspur must do to finish above Arsenal for third successive season and avoid St Totteringham’s Day

The era of St Totteringham’s Day is close to being declared over after Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City.

Tottenham’s own defeat, at home to West Ham, threatened to dump them out of the Premier League top four, but another slip up from the Gunners may have saved them.

Spurs had suffered years of dominance at the hands of their rivals and finished below them every campaign from 1995/96 to 2016/17.

Now, though, Mauricio Pochettino has guided his side above their neighbours for the last two years and could make it three as soon as next weekend.

The two clubs are still in a huge battle to finish in the top four, with Chelsea and Manchester United also able to land a Champions League qualification spot.
