Any further dropped points surely end their lingering hopes of Champions League qualification but the run-in looks kind, starting with the already relegated Blades.
With Liverpool at Manchester United and West Ham travelling to a re-energised Burnley, Spurs could gain points on their rivals come the end of Monday.
