Tottenham’s Slim Hope in UCL, a Possible Hope for EPL victory



It is a little disrespectful that most people are not looking at Mauricio Pochettino’s side as potential Premier League winners, even though they are in the title race and they have shown they are not going away by impressively getting results  in each of their past four league games when none of those performances have been particularly great

The team will however be put to test in the UEFA champions League on Wednesday against the high flying German side Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the knockout stage.

Tottenham Hotspur will be without the England point men; Harry Kane and Dele Ali. A duo that have played integral roles in the present position of the team in the Premier League so far top the list of some others that would be sidelined.


Its however not insane to say the chances of getting through to the quarterfinal of the UCL is slim considering not only the injuries but also how Pochettino’s side side struggled in qualifying from group stage and the current form of the German Bundesliga table toppers.

Meanwhile, whatever the outcome is, it could be seen as blessing in disguise for the London side. Because dropping early from the Champions League ‘may’ give the opportunity to concentrate and get ahead of the Premier League table toppers since there are just few points separating them should Liverpool and Manchester City progresses.

Separatist rebellions broke out against Ukrainian rule in both regions in 2014. Moscow provided military help for the separatists, according to evidence gathered by Reuters, though Russian officials have denied providing material support.

Large swathes of the two regions are now under the de facto control of the Moscow-backed rebels, while Kiev says it is determined to re-assert its control, a position backed by most Western countries.

There was no immediate reaction from Kiev to Putin’s order. Ukrainian officials are likely to react angrily to any indication Moscow is drawing the rebel regions closer into its own orbit.
