Here is how and why Tottenham could determine the winner of the Premier League


With just goal difference and a single point separating the top three on the 2023/2024 Premier League table, here is how and why the fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur could determine the winner of the league.

The title race for the 2023/2024 season of the Premier League has been competitive for the first time in over two seasons with the race still a three-legged race even at the season half of the season. Top club sides Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City have continued to evolve their game with each side coming up with better and more advanced gameplay as the tournament progresses.

Many had initially expected the Liverpool vs Man City fixture which was played the previous week to determine the winner of the Premier League but rather the fixture had thrown the competition entirely open with one club side which will face all three opponents stepping up as the side that could probably crown the premier league champions.

Ange Postecogolu-led Tottenham Hotspur is now the club that would face all the top three clubs vying for the Premier League title and this is why many believe Spurs could be the club that crowns the next Premier League champion.

The month of April as well as the month of May happen to be the highly decisive month in the Premier League as the battle for the title as well as the top four intensifies. Tottenham is currently eyeing a top-four finish and a possible spot in the Champions League and although many are focused on how these fixtures can determine the winner of the league for Spurs fans, this is also an important part of their season as well.

If Spurs beat two of the premier league top sides and lose to one, that one is automatically poised to go top of the table and maintain a few points gap into the final sets of games in the season.

Tottenham will face Manchester City on April 20, 2024, Arsenal on April 27, 2024, and Liverpool on May 4, 2024. These are key fixtures many would be paying close attention to as the league progresses.

This is not the first time a club that is not competing in the Premier League would determine the winner of the league. Chelsea FC's result against Tottenham became the title decider the year Leicester won the league.

On the 2nd of May 2016, a crucial match was held for the title between two London-based teams, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge. Tottenham took a 2-0 lead in the first half, with goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Chelsea managed to reduce the deficit when Gary Cahill scored in the second half. In the final moments of the game, Eden Hazard scored to level the score and Tottenham's hope of winning the title came to an end. At the end of the match, Leicester City were crowned as the champions of England.
