Spurs four points behind Chelsea and the pair meet in FA Cup semi-finals
Tottenham Hotspur are going great guns at the moment, with Saturday’s 4-0 win over Bournemouth closing the gap on Chelsea.
The Blues then went to Old Trafford the following day and lost 2-0, which means that Spurs have a glimmer of hope when it comes to landing the 2016/17 title.
For several months, it has looked like a procession for Antonio Conte’s side, although defeats against Crystal Palace and the Red Devils means that the gap is now four points.
Sky Bet now make Spurs a 22/1 chance to win a Premier League and FA Cup double, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side hoping to claim victory against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final match on Saturday.
The Wembley showdown will effectively be between the best two teams in the land, with Chelsea still overwhelming favourites at 1/7 to win the Premier League title despite their latest slip-up.
Chelsea and Tottenham both have six games remaining in the Premier League this season, with Spurs needing to win all their matches and hope that their London rivals drop at least four points.
William Hill offer 15/8 that Spurs claim victory at Wembley on Saturday, with the national stadium not a happy hunting ground for Tottenham this season after their trials and tribulations in the Champions League.
BetVictor offer 7/2 that Spurs land the FA Cup and they would go on to play Manchester City or Arsenal in the final should they make it through.
“If you analyse where we came from, it’s a fantastic time for Tottenham” said Pochettino.
“Tottenham is not building in an artificial way. It is not about putting in money, money, money and build a fantastic team. Tottenham is genuine, a very natural process, and it is so exciting because it is unique in the world.”
