One of Tottenham Hotspur’s objectives for the season would have been to challenge for the Premier League title.
Last season, Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished second – one position higher than their previous campaign in the top flight.
Going that one step further was always going to be a difficult task for the North London outfit considering the level of opposition.
Now, according to Pochettino, the English crown is already out of their grasp due to the dominance of Manchester City, who have gone 13 points clear of fourth-placed Spurs after beating Huddersfield Town 2-1 this afternoon.
Tottenham had an opportunity to keep pressure on the leaders when they took on West Bromwich Albion at Wembley on Saturday.
However, they were dealt an early blow when Salomon Rondon netted inside the first five minutes, putting the North London outfit immediately on the back foot.
Harry Kane managed to find an equaliser, but the winner never came and Tottenham had to settle for a point.
According to The Telegraph when asked if the gap between themselves and City is too much to make up, Pochettino said:
“Yes, it’s true now that the gap is 10 points and it’s massive in the Premier League. But now we need to be focused and try to improve ourselves and be more consistent at Wembley, and try to win more games here like last season at White Hart Lane.”
