With only six games left now, Tottenham have emerged as the sole contenders who can possibly knock Chelsea off their perch as the champions-elect of this season.
The North Londoners have surpassed expectations as many didn’t even think they could make the top 4 at the end of the season.
The fact that Spurs are the only challengers left for Chelsea to overcome has not been lost on anyone – including City manager Pep Guardiola.
This has led to Antonio Conte actually looking to engage in psychological warfare with Mauricio Pochettino, as the Italian cleverly painted Spurs as plucky overachievers.
Whilst Pochettino is not a man of many words, he did strike back with some clever reverse psychology. Given that the sides have already played each other twice this season, this public war of words is the best fans can expect to see out of the two as they attempt to out-psych each other.
