Tottenham boss keeps hopes of Champions League football alive

Spurs have two games left to play for in the 2023/24 Premier League season, and those results could go a long way in determining their hopes of qualifying for European competitions next season.

It's all there to play for as Tottenham enter the final two weeks of the Premier League season.

Trailing fourth place Aston Villa by four points, Spurs will have to hope The Villains lose their next two fixtures, while they themselves try to win their own two.

It won't be an easy task, as Ange and co. will be forced to face Manchester City on Tuesday.

After that, things may lighten up as the club take on Sheffield United, who sit bottom of the table.

Of course, a win and draw could close the gap between The Lilywhites and Villa, however, with the opposition's four point lead in goal differential, that would be a daunting task.

Speaking with the press following Spurs' most recent 2-1 victory over Burnley at the weekend, Postecoglou delivered a message of concentration and determination as the club moves forward to bigger and brighter things, despite the challenge that awaits his team.

"We've still got six points to play for. That's the key thing for us. There's a big game for us on Tuesday night against City and it will be a great test for us and the Sheffield United one," Ange stated plainly.

"We'll see where we can get to, playing our football and see what points we get and end up," the manager added.

Known for his belief in building a style of play and a unique identity around the teams he coaches, Postecoglou's words seemed to illuminate the idea that there is something bigger at play here, something more important than 'getting top-four.'

Spurs fans will no doubt be holding their breath as they face Pep Guardiola's former champions this week, a team who can win the league if they win their next two matches.

Both clubs will have a lot to play for.
