The 1-1 draw with West Brom was a clear indication that it was they, and not Leicester, who were feeling the heat.
And is if to underline it, their heads went completely in the disgraceful scenes during and after the Battle of the Bridge.
Only Pochettino and Harry Kane came out of it with any credit and they should be applauded for their immediate praise for the men who had pipped them.
Well, they weren’t really ‘pipped’ – they actually fell well short, seven points behind with two games to play.
When you look at it like that, the winning margin was little short of comprehensive.
No, Spurs cracked. They bottled it. Though that will no doubt leave a nasty taste in the mouth of their fans, there is no other conclusion.
