    Sean@10:13pm Sean, a cameo of our season so far mate lots of possession nemerous shots but too few on target.

    I can’t see us getting 4th place without we can solve the striker connundrum and January is a difficult time to try and do that.

    I would like to suggest that we can do you a favour on Saturday but I just can’t see it. If I’m honest I’m hoping we don’t suffer a morale sapping thumping and that we see a bit of a reaction and play with a bit of pride.

    Really sad to hear the news on Gomez he’s looked a very good player this season hopefully he recovers from his injury asap. Cheers 999

    good win for spurs last night and up to 3rd! shame the whole team (apart from hugo) stopped playing at 3-0. would’ve been nice to get a high scoring win. i must say despite how negative i have been about spurs this season i am very impressed. so much going on off the pitch and we are still 3rd in the league. no signings, no stadium, 9 of our 15 games played away from home – not bad going.

    arsenal taking all the plaudits for their unbeaten run but its not much use if you are drawing so many games.

    Spurs playing really well at the moment and are nailed on for 3rd place. Arsenal look very impressive in forward mode but a bit suspect defensively once Emery solves that they could eventually become a title contender again.

    27-I really believe that for both Spuds and Arse the 2nd is within their reach.

    Given all the nonsense going on, I reckon most of us Spud-lovers are secretly wondering how on earth we’re 3rd… the thing that bodes well for the future, this is about the time of the season were we always seem to go on a bit of a run (we always have one really decent run every season!) and looking at our fixtures, they could be a lot worse until February, when we play City again… about 13 games in a row against “lesser” sides… considering the form we’re starting to show, I’m quite confident Top4 should be within our grasp. Especially if we get a couple of players in Jan too (not 100% sure about this attacking midfielder from Italy, that’s one area we’re pretty well covered I reckon).

    Mav, I will be amazed if City and Liverpool don’t occupy the top two spots Arsenal imo aren’t strong enough defensively to go too much higher than 4 th but we’ll see.

    I tell you one thing lads, we can kiss our brilliant goals against figure goodbye now. The PL thinks our defence = Van Dijk and as much as he deserves a HUGE amount of praise (we turned a pretty weak defence into one of the best in Europe), Gomez has quietly been outperforming even him in some matches. He’s been a revelation and now that he’s out for 6 weeks, we’re 100% going to suffer for it.

    Lovren plays better alongside Van Dijk than he did when he had Matip and Moreno on each side of him and although I’m glad that Gomez hasn’t had another absolutely massive injury, this is not going to be easy for us, as we have honestly ridden very close to the edge in quite a few games. This could be that tipping point, if the attack doesn’t step up and improve.

    So disappointed for Gomez as it’s been a joy to watch him play to such an incredibly high level.

    9 , like you I’d be amazed if City & Liverpool don’t make 1 & 2 and I’ll be more than happy for Spurs to get top 4 on goal difference !!!!

    Gomez will be a huge loss. Been superb at centre back

    Nine, fair comments mate. Hazard still looks unfit from his injury in my opinion. Does he need a proper rest

    I’m in no way suprised at spurs form. They didn’t spend a penny bit they have a very good squad.

    Mak , with the attack you have I can’t see a problem . If whoever you play score 2 you score 3/4 ,you might have a few more goals against but it won’t lose you points.
    That’s probably the kiss of death on Liverpool

    The days of Liverpool scoring 4 and 5 goals are gone though. We got 3 the other night but we’ve struggled to score in many games. It’s not like we’re not getting any goals but we are getting fewer than our continuation from lasts season.

    I’m not complaining but just saying that we’ll find it that bit harder to win now.

    Mak , Liverpool are a victim of their own sucess scoring 4/5 goals every match. All that’s happened is you’ve come down to the level of the rest of us.

    27-Arse are the most improved team on from last season,and Liverpool are not firing on all cylinders,so both Spurs and Arse are in with a chance.Liverpool are really struggling to create anything these days.Not saying that wont change,but for the time being Liverpool are not scoring for fun like last season.

    Mav I think it’s more a problem of not taking our chances

    We missed 5 clear cut chances againest everton

    12 shots on target last night

    No doubting it’s not the same going forward but we need to start taking more chances

    Mav, Arsenal are on a good run but they are 8 effectively 9 points behind Liverpool and I can’t see Liverpool dropping too many points. If Arsenal were to strengthen defensively 20 goals conceded to date you never know but they’re an outside bet at best imo to finish in the top 2 but we shall see.
