Tottenham Hotspur have been in sensational form over the past month or so.

Spurs legend Teddy Sheringham sat down for an exclusive interview with Ladbrokes, and highlighted a particular game that Mauricio Pochettino would have learned from during his tenure as Tottenham manager.

A run of seven consecutive wins in the league has catapulted the North London outfit to within just four points of league leaders Chelsea, and there is genuine belief emanating from White Hart Lane that they can win heir first league title since 1961.

The Lilywhites have come on leaps and bounds since the Argentine took over as manager in the summer of 2014, but they had to endure bitter disappointment last season, when they collapsed during the final four games, gifting the Premier League title to Leicester City.

And Sheringham highlighted Spurs' 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge last term as a fantastic learning curve for Pochettino, as he looks to guide his side to Premier League glory this season, when speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes:

"Pochettino will have definitely learnt a lot about his team that night (last season's game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge) and they’re all the better for it, hopefully we’ll see that on show this weekend. Tottenham’s squad is excellent right now and they have pace and aggression to hurt teams, and after last season they now know how and when to use those assets."

Pochettino's men have arguably the tougher run-in out of the two teams, with four of their final six games coming away from White Hart Lane. They also have tricky home matches against Arsenal and Manchester United respectively.

With the Tottenham's current mood, however, nobody would be surprised to see them win all six games, and overhaul Antonio Conte's men at the top of the table.
