Stan Collymore responds when asked why Tottenham Hotspur are so hated

Tottenham Hotspur's draw with Chelsea was widely celebrated by neutrals.

Stan Collymore says he does not know why Tottenham Hotspur have received so much ‘hate’ as they have pushed for the Premier League title this season.

Leicester City have been the neutrals choice to win the league, and Spurs appear to have become public enemy number one.

Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea, which confirmed that they would no longer be able to catch Leicester, was greeted by widespread joy on social media sites.

But Collymore cannot work out why Spurs have had so much vitriol directed at them, because they have produced a very talented, young side.

Tottenham look set to finish this season as London’s top team and in second placed in the Premier League table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently seven points behind Leicester City with just two games remaining, meaning that the gap between the two sides is now insurmountable.

Pochettino has already promised Spurs will come back stronger next season, where they will be aiming to go one step further and clinch their first ever Premier League title.
