Tottenham will have to try and bounce back from their heaviest defeat in ten years when they host Manchester United this week.
Spurs were humiliated 6-1 by Newcastle at the weekend but they can revive their top four hopes with the visit of the Red Devils, live on talkSPORT.
The north Londoners found themselves 5-0 down after just 21 minutes against the Magpies on route to their biggest loss since Manchester City smacked six without reply in 2013.
And after the embarrassing defeat, interim boss Cristian Stellini was sacked with Ryan Mason taking over immediately.
Tottenham remain in fifth and cut the gap to United down to only three points with a win.
Erik ten Hag’s men do have two games in hand and victory for them would stretch the gap to an almost insurmountable nine points.
United will also be buoyed by edging Brighton in a penalty shootout at Wembley to reach the FA Cup final at the weekend.

Tottenham vs Man United: What has been said?
Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara told talkSPORT: “I’m sick and tired of watching Tottenham, I’m actually done this season with them now I’m not going to watch them again because they’re a disgrace.
“Yesterday was an absolute disgrace. Let’s be honest, we all love a bit of banter, we all love throwing shade to each other, but actually in the grand scheme of things, watching that yesterday was an absolute disaster and an absolutely disgraceful football team and they should be ashamed of themselves.
“I turned it off after 10 minutes! 3-0 down after nine minutes I mean what’s that? You’re meant to be professional athletes and have a bit of pride in your performance.
“Not one of them showed any pride, any passion for the football club. None of them deserved to put that shirt on yesterday and all those Tottenham fans that made the trip, they should be paying them fans back.”
