Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas believes his side will finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, and has set a target of 70 points to ensure that aim, according to the
Spurs currently have 54 points and with eight games to play, would need to take an average of two points per game from their remaining fixtures. Villas-Boas takes Spurs to Swansea City on Saturday and also faces games against Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton before the end of the season.
The Guardian notes that 70 points has been enough to clinch a top four place in the last three seasons but Tottenham’s lead over Arsenal is looking a little precarious, despite Spurs beating their north London rivals only recently.
Tottenham followed up victory over the Gunners by losing their next two league games, reducing the gap to four points with Arsenal having a game in hand, to come in April against Everton.
Villas-Boas said: “Most of the teams will have to get their act together, us exactly the same. It shifts very quickly for any team in the Premier League who does not get results. I think normally it’s within the 70 to 72 margin. 70 is normally enough to get in those four spots.”
