Well, after this dismal result, it does appear that CL qualification is now mission: impossible.

Spurs’ form has been fading fast in this crucial run-in – only 1 win in the last six games tells its own story. This time round, blame could not be assigned to the strikers as both Pavlyuchenko and Defoe scored the goals that should have brought us the much needed three points. In the end, it was a cruel wonder strike from substitute Simon Cox that broke Spurs’ hearts.

But really, Spurs would not have deserved victory for the sloppy manner in which they went about their business. Defensive frailties exposed with almost every Albion attack and an inability to break down the Baggies’ defensive ranks have cost Spurs dearly. Now, Man City have the game in hand and a point advantage. Not only that but with a resurgent Liverpool finishing the season strongly, 5th place may not even be guaranteed!

Spurs still have to play away to Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City – and on current form, are likely to take nothing home from these difficult games. It’s probably still too soon to call but yesterday’s draw probably signals the end of the Champions League quest for next season. Hopefully, I am proven wrong in the weeks ahead.
