Spurs fans answer key Premier League title question ahead of crucial Chelsea clash

Spurs fans dreams of winning the big prize after many years of hurt and failure are starting to fade already after a recent dip in form.

The north Londoners face Premier League title contenders Chelsea in what could prove to be a pivotal game in deciding the trajectory as to whereabouts Tottenham’s season is about to go.

After a blistering start to the new 2021/22 campaign, the Lillywhites’ last two results against Crystal Palace and Rennes have put the brakes on supporters’ expectations of winning silverware this season.

This is despite a run of three wins that saw Nuno Espirito Santo top the charts in English football after three respective one-nil victories of different magnitudes.

Ahead of the London derby, just like the majority of the Tottenham faithful who aren’t feeling confident due to the abundance of injuries in the squad, manager Espirito Santo has admitted that he is worried in some sense about what could unfold in this match.

“Many obstacles,” he said. “It’s not good, it’s not good. I’m worried, naturally. I should not share with you, this is not the moment, but just to be honest. I think the boys did well because it’s tough. Things coming and coming and we keep trying to find solutions. The boys did everything.”

Spurs have already beaten Manchester City at home this season without Harry Kane available though and when asked about the prospect of facing Chelsea, the Spurs boss said he still believed in his players.

“It’s at home and we’re going to have our fans behind us,” he said. “We will compete. It’s going to be a tough match, but we’re going to be ready for it. They’re a very good team, a very good team. All the teams in the Premier League are very tough.”

A win for Espirito Santo’s side will put the north London outfit two points ahead of Thomas Tuchel’s Champions League winners at the top end of the table after five matches played.

When Spurs fans were posed the question as to whether or not they could win their first major trophy since 2007, the reaction was overwhelming for one side of the argument.

Here’s what a few of them had to say in relation to this topic.

@Desuv gave his four-word verdict: ‘No chance. 4th max.’

@Blood-Quack put: ‘I wish. But realistically? Not a chance.’

He went on to explain his stance: ‘Kane looks disinterested, he and Sonny won’t get much service since our midfield is basically set up to protect the shaky back line, and this season the top 3 or 4 teams have depth that we can only begin to dream about. So yeah.’

@imgoinhungry1 wrote: ‘No. Will struggle to make Europa League.’

@MouseOk644_redux joked: ‘Championship perhaps.’

On the other hand, there are a few fans like @DLDLuvTSDxoxoxo who want to think positive unlike the majority of supporters when answering this specific question on Reddit.

They put in the comments: ‘Hope so to. Have a little bit of faith.’
