Tottenham close to ending trophy drought, says Alderweireld

After the weekend, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte called Spurs the best team in England after they hammered Bournemouth 4-0 to close the gap on the Champions-elect to only four points with six games remaining in the chase for the Premier League title.

"If there's a favourite it's Chelsea, top of the Premier League, with experienced players and the manager they have", said Tottenham manager Pochettino. In Eric Dier, Spurs has a player who would relish a job like this, though Conte will have worked in practice on ensuring Hazard and the team are more mobile to ensure lighting does not strike twice.

"But we are in a good moment, too, and we are hungry to challenge this type of team".

Players like Diego Costa and Eden Hazard will get the bonus for winning the Premier League title ahead of second placed Tottenham.

While Antonio Conte's Chelsea side, who were 13 points clear a few weeks ago, have looked vulnerable in defeats by Crystal Palace and Manchester United, Tottenham have built up a head of steam with seven consecutive league wins. We will see but it's important to enjoy the game. As was the case last season, the Belgian has been consistent and like Walker, is a key reason why Tottenham have only conceded 22 Premier League goals in 33 games. They won only one of their four Champions League and Europa League matches there and have managed only one victory in their last eight at the national stadium overall.
