EPL table 2016-17: Where will Tottenham finish this season?

Tottenham head into gameweek 32 hot on the heels of Premier League leaders Chelsea as Spurs look to keep their title hopes alive.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are determined not to give up on their title dream, with a remarkable 3-1 comeback win at Swansea on Wednesday highlighting Spurs' desire for the fight.

Despite five wins on the trot, Spurs must hope for a spectacular collapse from Chelsea in order to finish the season top of the pile as they trail the Blues by seven points.

But Spurs can at least put pressure on Chelsea this weekend as they host Watford in Saturday's early kick-off, meaning the gap could be down to four points by the time Conte's men face Bournemouth late in the day.

A runners-up spot would represent significant progress and the north Londoners, who boast the best home record in the division, will be more than happy to mark their final season at White Hart Lane in such fashion.
