There is simply no downplaying the importance of Tottenham Hotspur’s home Premier League match against Newcastle United on Wednesday night.
Spurs currently hold fourth position in the Premier League table, but they are only two points ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea, who will fancy their chances of beating Huddersfield Town when the pair lock horns at Stamford Bridge on the same night.
Defeat for Tottenham against Newcastle would be an absolute disaster, and it could well take their top-four hopes out of their own hands ahead of their final match of the campaign against Leicester City this weekend.
Former Spurs captain Ledley King has been discussing the situation on social media, and the 37-year-old has sent a message to the supporters to ensure that the team feels their whole support during a vital couple of matches.
There was the odd negative comment in response to King’s tweet, but the majority of Tottenham fans agreed with what the former England international had to say, even if their confidence is not exactly sky-high at the moment.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
It's been a fantastic season with so many high points, let's make sure we get behind the team for the final push and help bring champions league football to our new home next season. #COYS
