Tottenham recently reversed a run of four straight matches without a victory by claiming the spectacular 5-1 thrashing of newly promoted Bournemouth in the previous league outing.
However, they have to work extremely hard in order to maintain such high standards according to manager Mauricio Pochettino. The team are up against Aston Villa on Monday night. A victory is essential for Spurs if they are to keep their heads above the likes of Liverpool. Only a few weeks ago, the possibility of finishing in a top four spot looked extremely promising. The failure to win the last four games, though, has taken its toll in terms of confidence.
