Tottenham Hotspur can close the gap to Premier League leaders Chelsea to just one point if they can beat arch-rivals West Ham United at the London Stadium on Friday night.
Antonio Conte’s men looked to have moved a step closer to regaining the title with a convincing 3-0 victory against Everton at Goodison Park last Sunday, but Spurs kept the pressure up on the Blues by beating Arsenal 2-0 in the final ever north London derby at White Hart Lane.
Friday’s game is perhaps even bigger than that one though as Mauricio Pochettino’s men know that they can move to within a single point of the summit with a victory against Slaven Bilic’s side, who have endured a disappointing campaign – they lie in 15th position ahead of the clash.
Tottenham supporters have been giving their thoughts in the lead up to the massive match via social media, and they are nervous despite the fact that their team has won nine league games in a row.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Bigger. Than. Sunday.#coys
