Crunch time. The crunch is on For Spurs after a draw against Chelsea last week (and Chelsea's subsequent win yesterday). The race for fourth is now between Arsenal and Spurs, with Arsenal holding a one point lead (and a major advantage in goal differential). The formula is simple for Spurs--win the season's two remaining matches and hope Arsenal drops points at some time.
A trip to the Britannia stadium looms for Spurs penultimate match of the season. Stoke City sit eleventh on the table, now safe from relegation. It has been a typical Stoke season, as low scoring has been paired with stingy defense. The team's attack has been led by Jonathan Walters, as the Irishman has a team-leading eight goals. However, the team's real lead has come from centerback combo of Robert Huth and Ryan Shawcross and Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, have helped solidify Stoke as having one of the league's best defenses.
